Pitt gets ready to welcome West Virginia to the Petersen Events Center for the Backyard Brawl, Basketball edition. What can Pitt and WVU fans look forward to overall in the matchup? Do the Panthers have a legitimate chance to win this year’s iteration?
With the injury to John Hugley, what will the Panthers see from him tonight? Will he play or be on a minutes count? With the newly retooled rosters, what can fans expect from both teams since they are largely different from a year ago?
Lastly, I give a prediction for the game. Can WVU use its power down low to collapse Pitt’s gameplan, or will Pitt’s newly found sharpshooter style prevail over the Mountaineers?
