The Lions will now play Pitt tonight at 7. The Panthers' enter with a 4-0 record and their coach, Toby Rens, was happy with what he saw out of some of his young team's freshman in last weekend's Pitt Panther Invitational.
"We got a lot of new faces on the roster this year, and I like the depth that we have right now," Rens said. "We had a couple of freshmen come off the bench and do some really good things last weekend."
