The Pittsburgh Panthers are close to tipping off with the Washington State Cougars and will be without Big East Player of The Year Ashton Gibbs, as the senior guard is out with an ankle injury.
No Ashton Gibbs for Pitt.Pre-season Big East player of year has ankle injury.No Brock for Cougs. #GoCougs— Bud Nameck (@budname) March 28, 2012
Gibbs leads Pitt in scoring with 14.6 points per game and leads the team in three-point shots made.
