It's that time again! I figured it would be a great start to the day to kick Pitt while they're down. Does that sound like a good idea?

I though so, now let's get in the time machine and head back to January 19th, 2000. SU would travel to unranked Pitt on this day as the No. 6 team in the country and improve their record to 15-0 with an 82-72 victory over the Panthers.

A trio of SU seniors led the way on this night. Jason Hart had 12 points and 11 assists. The poetic Etan Thomas scored 17 points, grabbed 10 boards, and of course blocked 4 shots. Ryan Blackwell added 10 points. DeShaun Williams poured in 23 in the winning effort. I thought Williams would have been a mainstay but it didn't work out for him at the Cuse. Same could be said of Tony Bland (remember him?)as he finished with 6 points and 1 assist.

There were 6,645 fans at Pitt on this night to witness this game. Yep, I'm serious, under 7k for hoops. We couldn't even imagine that!
