PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pitt point guard Levance Fields has practiced for the first time in almost two weeks after being bothered by a sore groin.

Pitt coach Jamie Dixon says Fields looks “pretty good” and seemed to be moving well Wednesday.

The Panthers open play at the NCAA tournament on Friday against East Tennessee State.

Fields was bothered by the injury during the Panthers’ final regular season game, against Connecticut on March 7, and their Big East tournament loss to West Virginia on March 12, but did not sit out either game. He was held out of practice to prevent the injury from becoming worse.

He averages 10.7 points and 7.6 assists per game and is one of college basketball’s most effective point guards. He has 244 assists and only 63 turnovers.
