The Pitt basketball program is set to face the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Wednesday night. Here’s everything you need to know for the game.
There’s no doubt about it, the Pitt basketball program is far from where they wanted to end their 2017-2018 season. We all knew this team was young and inexperienced, but little did we know they would still be looking for their first ACC at this point in the year. Still, with one game left against Notre Dame, the Panthers have one more opportunity to change their fate.
The good news for Pitt is that the Fighting Irish haven’t been as dominant this season, largely because they’ve been without Bonzie Colson for most of conference play. With his status still in doubt for Wednesday night, all eyes will be on whether Notre Dame’s best player will be able to contribute.
If Colson does indeed miss the game, the Panthers chances of winning will definitely rise, but no one knows how much. This Pitt basketball squad has rarely put together a good game this season, much less a decent half. If they want to end their long losing streak on Wednesday, they have to play their best game of the year.

Regardless of how good or bad this Fighting Irish squad is, year in and year out, the Joyce Center poses a tough challenge to every opponent. The Notre Dame faithful always comes out looking to create chaos with their cheering. Not to mention, with the potential of Bonzie Colson coming back to the lineup, that place could get crazy.
At the end of the day, Pitt has to stay focused and remain poised. This Panthers basketball program is one that has a ton of pride, which means finishing the season without a conference win is simply unacceptable.
Who knows, maybe Pitt will finally put together a solid 40 minutes of play and shock the Fighting Irish on their own floor? We can all hope, right?
