Miller’s first album was entitled “Blue Slide Park” and the park makes an appearance in the music video for his song “Frick Park Market.” Fans set up a makeshift memorial for the rapper after his death in September.
The Pitt men’s and women’s basketball teams opened their 2018-19 season Friday night with the “Courtside at the Cathedral” event on Bigelow Boulevard.
