The Pirates return home after salvaging their final game of a three game road trip, defeating Rutgers on Wednesday night. Winning for the first time in their last seven games, the Pirates will attempt to keep their postseason hopes alive in defeating a Pitt team that opened conference play dropping their first seven. Pittsburgh's point guard, Tray Woodall was banged up earlier in the week and missed practice mid-week, but looks good to go this afternoon. However, the Pirates probably won't be as lucky with an injury concern of their own.
On Thursday, I was told Seton Hall backup center, Aaron Geramipoor will likely miss a week with an upper hip injury. With four home games remaining it's imperative that the Pirates hold serve at home to finish conference play with AT LEAST a .500 record. Let's give future Pirate (2013) Aquille Carr something to be excited about as he'll be in attendance, cheering on his future squad. Gotta have this one.
As Always, Let's Go Hall!
