History

Pitt's history in the last few decades could be said to start following the resignation of coach Grgurich, and the hiring of Lafayette head coach Roy Chipman in 1980. In his first season at the helm, the Panthers won the Eastern Eight (forerunner of the Atlantic 10) Conference Tournament. Pitt continued onto the NCAA tournament, where after a thrilling overtime defeat of Idaho, they were eliminated in the second round by the North Carolina. Chipman's Panthers were able to experience similar success the following season, defeating rival West Virginia for their last Eastern Eight Tournament Championship - energized by insulting remarks by WVU Coach Gale Catlett. Pitt was knocked out of the NCAA tournament in the first round by Pepperdine to end Chipman's second season, as well was Pitt's last as a member of the Eastern Eight Conference. Lafayette, LaFayette, or La Fayette may refer to: // Gilbert du Motier, marquis de La Fayette (Marquis de Lafayette), French hero of the American Revolution (sometimes referred to as the Marquis de la Fayette) Marie-Madeleine Pioche de la Vergne, comtesse de la Fayette (Madame de Lafayette), French author. ...


With the opening of the 1982-1983 season, Pitt began play as a member of the new Big East Conference.


In 2002, Pitt began their first season of play at the 12,508 seat Petersen Events Center. Their first opponent at "the Pete", as the facility is called by students, was against cross-city rival Duquesne University. The John M. and Gertrude E. Petersen Events Center is a 12,508-seat multi-purpose arena on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. ... Duquesne University of the Holy Spirit is a private Catholic university located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. ...


The 2005-2006 season marked the 100 year anniversary for the Pitt basketball program. The centennial came at a time of dramatic change for the program, which also entered the first year of competition in the newly expanded 16-team Big East Conference. The Big East Conference is a collegiate athletics conference consisting of thirteen universities, mostly in the northeastern United States: Boston College (scheduled to leave in 2005) University of Connecticut (UConn) Georgetown University (Plays Division I-AA football in the Patriot League) University of Notre Dame (Plays Division I-A football...
