Pitt hits the court today in an attempt to get their season back on track after a bad 80-70 home loss against Saint Francis (Pa.) on Nov. 25.

Pitt fans exploded in frustration after the game, and it is noteworthy that the Panthers have seemingly had one of these “out-of-left-field” losses against an inferior opponent each year under Jeff Capel. In 2018, Pitt lost a home game to Niagara; last season, the Panthers lost to Nicholls State at home; this year, the Panthers got rolled by the Red Flash in their home opener.

Still, it is important to remember the context:

There is no excuse for what happened at the Pete on Wednesday. Pitt was unprepared for competition; its best and most experienced players struggled; and it let an inferior team which lost its best two scorers from a year ago dominate them on the defensive end all night.
