Marquette heads back out onto the court at the Al McGuire Center tomorrow night to take on the Pittsburgh Panthers. Tip off will be at 7pm. For those of you unable to make it to the AMC, the game will be streamed on GoMarquette.com with Kyle Dlabay and Armen Saryan on the call.
It will also be the Golden Eagles' yearly Pink Out game in support of breast cancer awareness. The team will be outfitted in pink uniforms and the coaches, cheerleaders and band will also be wearing pink in some fashion. Spectators are of course encouraged to wear pink as well.

Pittsburgh (8-14, 0-9 Big East) has lost 8 straight and has yet to win a true road game this season. This probably shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, as the Panthers have a roster consisting of two redshirt sophomores, four true sophomores and six freshmen. Two Panthers average in double digits in scoring: freshman guard Brianna Kiesel at 13.0 per game and redshirt sophomore guard Ashlee Anderson at 10.5 per game. Kiesel also leads the team in assists with 3.3 per game. Given her statistical dominance within her team, it's not surprising that Kiesel is one of just two Panthers to start every one of Pitt's 22 games.
