    I was there and it was one of the lowest attendances I have seen in a while.

    rain+ 9pm start+ Pitt = 1500 fans

    Congrats to the team - Alvarado played fantastic and Banks was a good rim protector. Glad to see a win.

    I'm waiting for one of our guys to slap fives with players on the other team. Now that would be entertaining.

    Assuming these were the calls that knocked Devoe and Banks out of the game? The first one wasn’t great. Should have been a jump ball but it wasn’t egregious. ööööty way to pick up your 5th.

    But the call that gave Banks his 5th was just atrocious. Went straight up and palmed the ball from the top. Textbook stuff. The kind of play you show your bigs and say “do exactly that.” I scrolled through this thread expecting to see half the posts to be about that one.

    Happy to get the W, needed this one for the morale. I would like to see the team close out better in games though, the missed free throws helped. Man that Xavier Johnson kid looks like a force.

    Pitt's jersey's were okay. The thing that was holding them back were the dark blue "Pitt" on a black jersey.

    The "Pitt" should have been the royal blue they like to use.

    That's hilarious – I didn't even see Pitt on the jerseys. I thought they were just black with gold numbers, which I thought was cool.

    It was difficult to see even on TV.

    Very proud of the effort by most and pleased the team got a win. Alvarado was very good.
