The BIG EAST Recap: Pitt Gets A Scare Edition

(Editor's Note: We're going to start doing a daily recap (when there is at least one BIG EAST game) so you have an easy place to get all of the previous night's conference action).

Only one game on the slate last night, and a fierce rival at that. It was a great game to watch as college basketball is finally back, and the same school that handed us a football loss this weekend almost shocked a Top-5 team on opening day.

All good in my book.
