Blue and gold are the official colors of the University of Pittsburgh, but the color combinations black-and-gold or black-and-yellow are synonymous with Pittsburgh sports. This Saturday, the Pitt men’s basketball team will have a chance to don black-and-gold alternate uniforms when they host Syracuse.
The game has been declared a “Blackout” game for the Panthers and fans in attendance. Here’s some footage of the alternate threads being unveiled to the team by head coach Jamie Dixon.
It will be a little odd to see the Panthers rock these jerseys, but the black is a very clean look. Pitt and Syracuse are scheduled to tip off Saturday at 4 p.m.
