By any measure, this is the Golden Age of Pittsburgh basketball. In the last decade, the Panthers have had nine 25-win seasons, gotten to the Sweet 16 five times and become an elite member of an elite conference, the Big East.
In hindsight, the outcome should have surprised no one. From the opening tip, the Butler Bulldogs came out with more fight and energy hustle than the Pitt Panthers, and when the final horn sounded, it was Butler taking down the number one-seeded Pitt Panthers 71-70 to advance to the Sweet Sixteen.
As the top seed in the Southeast Regional, Pittsburgh is an obvious favorite over Butler.
The Big East schedule makers thought they booked one heck of a main event.
"When you look at Butler, you definitely have to respect them a little bit more," Pittsburgh forward Gilbert Brown said Friday.
"It may actually benefit us. We thrive being in an underdog role, when people don't expect us to succeed," Brown said. "It plays in our heads. We want to go out there and prove everybody wrong."
