As I was waiting outside to enter the Friday afternoon and evening games I noticed a few folks with PITT attire. During the evening game one of the Illini fans in attendance asked me why were there were so many PITT fans in attendance? I responded that we like to watch good basketball games. And we were scouting for any players that might enter the transfer portal.
