Providence Loss Even More Costly

This little gem almost slipped by me this week...

A planned story was scrapped after Tuesday's 81-73 upset loss at Providence. The magazine planned to do a lengthy story on the Panthers for early March and, according to Pitt media relations director Greg Hotchkiss, there was a "95 percent" chance it was going on the cover.

This is really a shame. I know some may not think it would have been a big deal, but according to Hotchkiss, Pitt basketball has never been on the cover ( has been regionally). As somewhat of a collector of Sports Illustrated magazines, I'm pretty sure this is the case.

Maybe we'll get another shot down the road...
