A day after stopping St. John's to extend its season by at least one day, Pitt will play a familiar foe in the 2012 Big East Tournament. The Panthers meet Georgetown in a second round game at 2 p.m. Eastern, renewing a rivalry that is likely to end when the Panthers depart for the ACC.
The Panthers, the No. 13 seed in the Big East, knocked off the fifth-seeded Hoyas, 72-60, in the teams' only meeting of this season in January. Pitt will be trying to keep its slim 2012 NCAA Tournament hopes alive against Georgetown: the Panthers are certain to fall short of March Madness unless they can win the Big East Tournament.
