The Big East tournament will have a touch of a wake to it this week. When games end, there will be plenty of reminiscing about rivalries and talk of what is to come.
It’s now on to the Big East Tournament for Pitt.
The Pitt football program has unveiled their 2013 schedule, their inagural season in the ACC. The season will kickoff with a primtime matchup against Florida St. at 8pm on Monday, September 2nd.
Pitt Hoops Coach Pat Sandle joined Starkey and Miller on Sports Radio 93-7 The FAN to talk about the teams recent hot streak that has propelled them back into the top 25.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Jim Boeheim, otherwise eloquent in defeat, had no answer for why Jamie Dixon continues to have his team’s number, but Dixon was able to put a finger on it. Ten of them, actually.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jim Boeheim spent two hours watching Pitt’s unusual 10-man rotation swarm No. 6 Syracuse into a flurry of missed shots, missed rebounds and missed opportunities in a 65-55 victory on Saturday and thinks he may have finally figured out who’s on top of the wide-open Big East.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — If Pitt wishes to be labeled as something other than an average Big East team come Selection Sunday, it must begin taking advantage of above-average Big East opportunities.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — What had been a position of strength in back-to-back wins was not so in a 14-13 loss at Syracuse last Friday. Left guard Chris Jacobson, the most veteran member of that group, believes this current collection of personnel can regroup in time for No. 18 Louisville’s visit to Heinz Field Saturday morning.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Offensively the Panthers left much to be desired last Friday, but Paul Chryst exempts no one from criticism following a 14-13 loss to lowly Syracuse in Big East action at the Carrier Dome.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Adonis Ameen-Moore scored on 1-yard run, Dyshawn Davis returned a fumble 52 yards for another score, and Syracuse broke out of a yearlong funk with a 14-13 victory over Pittsburgh on Friday night.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) The Orange (1-3, 0-0 Big East) will have to overcome a team that’s won the last seven games in the long series, and the Panthers (2-2, 0-1 Big East) have been purring of late.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Fifth-year senior Cam Saddler has been full of excitement this week in preparation for resuming Big East play at Syracuse on Friday. That’s because, although he missed last year’s meeting due to injury, he knows what to expect from the Orange.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Big East play finally resumes for the Panthers (0-1, 2-2) when they take on Syracuse (0-0, 1-3) at the Carrier Dome on Friday. Last year Pitt robbed the Orange’s chances of a bowl game, and Tino Sunseri expects just as much pressure and a loud atmosphere for this one.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Through two games Pitt’s defense looked lost. But now that group seems to have found its way, and the Panthers have gotten contributions from multiple sources en route to consecutive wins.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — When Pitt (0-1, 2-2) resumes Big East play Friday night, head coach Paul Chryst expects the Orange (0-0, 1-3) to practice their “air” craft inside the Carrier Dome.
