The last time the Louisville men’s basketball team won the NCAA tournament was 22 years ago — at least according to the NCAA. The NCAA vacated 123 wins from Louisville’s program — from between 2011 and 2015 — on Tuesday. The Cardinals will also be stripped of their 2013 NCAA championship win after bei...

The last time the Pitt men’s basketball team played Louisville, Pitt head coach Kevin Stallings made headlines for yelling at a Louisville fan in the midst of a blow-out loss. This time around, Stallings stayed out of trouble — but the result was the same, as Pitt fell to Louisville 94-60. Pi...

The Pitt women’s basketball team couldn’t capitalize on another strong performance from redshirt junior forward Yacine Diop, falling to the undefeated No. 2 Louisville Cardinals, 77-51 — despite Diop’s 26 points. The Panthers (9-10 overall, 1-5 ACC) had the game as close as seven at a point in t...

Yelling at opposing players, coaches and fans from the stands is common practice during college sporting events. But not as common is for players and coaches to yell back — unless you’re Pitt head coach Kevin Stallings, who did just that to a fan in the stands toward the end of last week’s game ...

The last time the Pitt men’s basketball team faced off against Louisville was last January in a 106-51 defeat. While the deficit never got up to 50, Pitt’s most recent game with Louisville was similarly uncompetitive as Louisville beat Pitt 77-51 on Tuesday night. After starting conference play with a 67-53 ...

The Pitt baseball team had its first run-in of 2017 with a ranked opponent last weekend.

Last week, as I watched Pitt’s men’s basketball team surrender a 19-point lead against Wake Forest, I felt something all too familiar. The Panthers still led by four with 3:27 to go, yet I knew the team would find a way to lose — which it did, 63-59 after a 10-2 run from the Demon Deacons. ...

The Pitt women’s basketball team has tested some of the best teams in the ACC like Louisville and N.C. State, only to give up the lead toward the end of the game and walk off in defeat. Sunday afternoon, the Panthers once again battled against the best but ultimately came up short. Pitt gave the No. 9 Louis...
