PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh is sticking with Jeff Capel.
Athletic director Heather Lyke said Friday the Panthers remain committed to Capel, who is 51-69 in four seasons since taking over for Kevin Stallings, including an 11-21 mark this year.
With retiring Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski down to his final few games at Duke, here’s a look at his impact on the game, from college basketball coaches, to the NBA and international competition:
NEW YORK (AP) — Jamarius Burton’s runner with 0.4 seconds left lifted Pittsburgh over St. John’s 59-57 in the showcase game of the Gotham Classic Saturday.
After St. John’s (8-3) had tied the game on two Dylan Addae-Wusu free throws, Burton took the inbounds pass and stormed down the court before lifting the game-winning shot from the left side.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh senior guard Nike Sibande is out for the season after tearing his right ACL in an exhibition win over Gannon on Monday.
The school made the announcement Tuesday after an MRI revealed the extent of the injury.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jeff Capel is entering his fourth season at Pittsburgh. It still sort of feels like the first.
The Panthers have yet to post a winning record under Capel let alone reach the NCAA Tournament.
As coaching debuts go, this was a dress rehearsal for Jeff Capel.
It was only an exhibition against Division II Pitt-Johnstown, but Capel got to hear public address announcer Joe DeStio introduce him "as the coach of your Pitt Panthers" and see his players perform in front of a crowd of 3,194 Thursday night at Petersen Events Center.
