Eric Hamilton Expected to Return to Pitt’s Lineup
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Pitt power forward Eric Hamilton is expected to make a return to his team’s lineup on Tuesday against Florida State after missing one game with a right ankle injury.
Hamilton was a full participant in warmups at Donald L. Tucker before the Panthers and Seminoles tipped off.
A 6-foot-9 graduate senior, Hamilton injured his right ankle in the waning moments of Pitt’s loss to Clemson at Petersen Events Center on Feb. 12. He missed Pitt’s game at Virginia Tech on Saturday.
In his first season with the Panthers after transferring from UNC Greensboro, Hamilton has made 18 starts and played 16.4 minutes per game. He’s averaging 5.4 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, the latter figure being third on the team.
He was replaced by Terrell Brown in Pitt’s starting lineup while injured.
Pitt is still without sophomore guars Onye Ezeakduo, who traveled with the team but did not warm up and had a walking boot on his sprained right ankle. He missed his fourth game after being injured at Notre Dame on Feb. 5.
