On Monday night, Pitt basketball took a major hit when senior Nike Sibande went down with a torn ACL in the exhibition win over Gannon.
After the game, head coach Jeff Capel described what happened to Sibande.
“He said that he, earlier, he banged knees,” said Capel. “He went knee-to-knee with someone and then tried to play through it. And then when he went on the under out of bounds to receive the pass, he came to a jump stop and his knee gave out.”
