RTC Live: Marquette @ PittsburghPosted by rtmsf on January 8th, 2011
Game #95. Everyone’s favorite Big East Team That Could visits Pitt on a chilly winter day in Three Rivers City.
Welcome to a snowy January Saturday in Pittsburgh at the Petersen Events Center, home of the University of Pittsburgh Panthers. Today’s Big East matchup should be like most of the others these days: A battle down to the bitter end. Pitt at home is almost impossible to beat, but Marquette isn’t going to just lie down. Their four losses are by a combined 14 points, including a five-point loss to Duke and a one-point nail biter to Vanderbilt. Pitt is almost unbeatable itself; one of the best performances of the year by Tennessee upended the home court winning streak by the Panthers. Sit back and relax, because one thing is for sure, you can be guaranteed a great game between two teams that have a lot to prove in the Big East, and they will be putting everything on the floor they have today. Plus, it’s cold outside, there’s no better place to be than watching college basketball right now.
