Pitt Men's Hoop Photos

The Pitt men's basketball team held its media day festivities Thursday at the Petersen Events Center, and despite losing four starters optimism was as high as ever for the Panthers.

Not only were a handful of new Pittsburgh players available for discussion, including the four incoming freshmen, but the debut of the Panthers' Nike uniforms were on display as well.

And Panther Digest Correspondent Denise Grdnic was there to capture these player images:
