Pitt holds steady this week after three rather low-quality wins against La Salle, Penn and Robert Morris. The Panthers will host Duquesne on Wednesday and travel to Tennessee on Saturday. The Volunteers handed the Panthers their first loss of the season last year. The Volunteers have two losses so far this season, but they were against Duke and Memphis, and they were competitive in both.
