Saturday's men's basketball game against No. 6 Syracuse is obviously a big game for the Panthers. Join us as we Gold Out the Petersen Events Center for the noon tipoff. Upon arrival to the arena, every fan will be handed a gold shirt. Please plan accordingly in order to be able to wear the shirt and cheer on Pitt to a victory over the Orange.
The following letter is from the Oakland Zoo, the Nation's top student section, to all fans that will be in attendance.
We appreciate your participation and your support of Pitt basketball!
Hail to Pitt!
Fellow Pitt Fans,
This Saturday, February 2nd, is another huge game on the Big East slate. Pitt needs to assert its home court advantage, and we as fans have to do our part to help. The game will be a Gold Out, and each fan in attendance will receive a free gold shirt to wear. As a result, we hope each of you prepare accordingly and are ready to don the gold.
The Zoo needs your help and we ask each of you to join us in guiding the Panthers to the win and defending our home court. Don't hesitate to join in on the cheers or get on your feet during any part of the game. Look around and implore the other Pitt fans to join you, because we need all of the help we can get. Wear the gold, be loud, stand up, and cheer with us as we re-introduce Syracuse to the Oakland Zoo! This won't be the normal Zoo, it will be one that fills the entire Petersen Events Center!
Thank you and Hail to Pitt,
