(93-7 The FAN) — Pitt had two chances to beat Washington State Monday night with just seconds remaining in Game 1 of the College Basketball Invitational Finals.
It’s hard for me to imagine that given the sparse attendance of Pitts first two CBI games at the Petersen Events Center that there are going to be many fans headed out to the Pride of the Palouse, Pullman, Wash., to root on the Panthers in the tournament finals against the Cougars of Washington State University.
Chris Gates | 93-7 The FAN — In beating Butler, 68-62, Wednesday night, Pitt (20-16) advanced to a best-of-three final against Washington State in the College Basketball Invitational.
