Pitt basketball team practices at Pitt-Greensburg

Pitt head coach Jeff Capel urges on his team against Virginia Tech in the second half Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019 at Petersen Events Center.

Pitt-Greensburg had some special guests in for a visit Friday.

No, they weren’t recruits; these basketball players’ recruiting days have long since passed — and they were courted at a much higher level.

But the group has plenty of game and put it on display for spectators inside Chambers Hall.

Pitt basketball coach Jeff Capel and his players ran a full-team practice at UPG. The Panthers are on a team bonding trip in the area.

UPG coach Brody Jackson said Pitt is spending the weekend at Seven Springs Resort.

“It was very cool to see how hard they work and prepare,” Jackson said. “High energy from the players and staff.”

Jackson said his team did not take part in the workout.

“I think they would be favored over us by a few points,” he said.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
