PITTSBURGH PANTHERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Pittsburgh at Duquesne 11/30/2013 1:00:00 PM |  TV:CBS SN | LIVE STATSPITTSBURGH - (AP) -- The campuses for Pittsburgh and Duquesne lie barely two miles apart. The talent gap on the basketball court has looked considerably wider over the last dozen years. And while second-year Dukes coach Jim Ferry believes it has shrunk, he's still well aware his team is a decided underdog...

Panthers crush Savannah State 88-55 in opener

Derrick Randall shined in his Pittsburgh debut, scoring 12 points and grabbing 12 rebounds as the Panthers breezed by Savannah State 88-55 in the season opener on Friday. Randall, a transfer from Rutgers, was put in the starting lineup after center Talib Zanna was suspended for one game due to a violation of team rules. Randall wasted little time making an impression, setting career...

Panthers look to push the pace in ACC debut

Jamie Dixon means it this time. No, really, he does. The Pittsburgh coach insists he's not kidding when he says it might be time to loosen the reins as the Panthers move from the bruising and brutal Big East to the more wide open ACC. ''We'll run a little better and be a little bit more skilled on the floor,'' Dixon said. ''I think we've got...

Throwback Team Thursday: 2009 Pitt Basketball

The 2008-2009 Pitt basketball team was regarded as one of the most physical in the country. The squad had high expectations after winning the Big East title in 2007-2008 and returning most of their key players. Pitt was led by their “Big 3”: DeJuan Blair (Spurs), scoring machine Sam Young (Grizzlies), and scrappy, slightly overweight point guard Levance Fields (nowhere to be...

Projected 2013-14 Lineup: Pittsburgh Panthers

It’s been one interesting off-season for the Pittsburgh Panthers. Players leaving early for the NBA, players heading elsewhere, transfers coming in, transfers coming in and then maybe changing their minds, other transfers being blocked, every day there is something new in the news. The fact is, over half of Pittsburgh’s roster will consist of players who have never stepped on...

Is JJ Moore transferring from Pitt?

As if this month weren't tumultuous enough (what, with the Trey Zeigler transfer, Steven Adams' announcement of leaving for the NBA, and losing out on recruit Jon Severe and transfer Eli Carter), the offseason just got a little more difficult with news that forward J.J. Moore may be transferring out of the program. First things first - as of now this doesn't appear to...

Don’t think you can do that in college basketball

At last night’s Pitt vs Seton Hall college basketball tilt we witnessed one of the better illegal moves in college basketball. Seton Hall center Gene Teague goes up for a dunk, misses it, the ball pops out and he continues to hold onto the rim while grabbing the rebound and trying to put it back. Teague gets an A+ for creativity, A+ for effort, and F for legality. That type of...

Random Athlete of The Day- Levance Fields

Levance Fields was a college basketball player for the University of Pittsburgh from 2005 to 2009. During his time at Pitt, he started at point guard for three years, and dished out 645 assists, third most in school history. He also had a knack for hitting clutch shots, like in his senior year when he hit a long go-ahead three pointer to give Pitt the lead in a Sweet 16 game against...

Khem Birch needs to grow up.

So let me get something straight.  Khem Birch calls his former Pitt teammates "self-absorbed" but is upset that they didn't respect him because he was an "All-American?"  It's all well and good to exceed at the high school level, but once you move up to the college ranks and don a uniform for your new school, none of that matters anymore.Maybe if Birch...

Pitt Recruit Gets Tattoo That Makes It Look Like He Was Clawed By A Panther (Photo)

Awesome. The recruit in question is Steven Adams, a highly touted power forward all the way from Wellington, New Zealand who, according to Rivals.com, has made a strong verbal commitment to play for Pitt.
