Time to Play Ball!

Pitt plays WVU tonight at 7:00 at the World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, known by Levance Fields as "The Mecca."

I've been there for 5 Big East Tournaments, and it's a wonderful occasion. Go there if you ever get a chance. Go to every single game and just have fun. Go to great restaurants in between, walk around the city, window shop, shop shop, and have a ball.

Regarding Levance's injury: He did not practice at all in order to let his injured groin rest. Coach Dixon will leave the decision up to Levance as to whether he plays or not, stating that he would never not let a player play.

Pitt won both meetings with WVU this season, 79-67 at the WVU Coliseum and 70-59 at the Petersen Events Center. WVU coach Bob Huggins has called Pitt the toughest team to matchup with all season and the best team that he's faced all season.

The Panthers are very superstitious while in NYC, staying at the same hotel(Hilton NY on 53rd), practicing at the same college (Baruch College), and eating at the hotel's restaurant. They even use the same bus driver to get around.

They do one other thing the same just about every time they play at Dah Gahden: Win.
