WIN

Pittsburgh native Tim Grgurich, who was an assistant coach under Ridl, became Pitt's next head coach. He led Pitt into the inaugural 1976–77 season of the Eastern Collegiate Basketball League, which would change its name to the Eastern Eight (forerunner to the Atlantic 10) the following year. That initial year, Larry Harris, a 6'6" forward with an impressive outside shot and an ability to score points in traffic, won the league scoring title. Grgurich also led Pitt to the 1980 NIT.

The Panthers took a 13-point lead into halftime and led by as many as 17 early in the second half but the Seahawks went on a 10-0 run that pulled them within three points at the midway point of the final half. Pitt failed to make a field goal in the final 8:40 of the game but made several free throws to seal the win. (Source: www.tribdem.com)

“We should really appreciate this. It’s the first win, it’s the first home win. We’ve been through a grind the past couple of weeks,” Capel said. “Hopefully, it’s something we feel good about, we learn from. We did some really good things, we learned from the things we didn’t do well, and we come back tomorrow with a great attitude ready to work. And hopefully that leads to us getting great preparation and we can get another win on Friday.”
