2012 Big East Tournament, Pittsburgh Vs. St. John's: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Pittsburgh Panthers and St. John's Red Storm game scheduled for Tuesday afternoon might not be the barn burner everyone was hoping for in the first round of the 2012 Big East Tournament. The two teams will be fighting for their NCAA tournament lives as they attempt to win five games in five nights, however, beginning Tuesday afternoon.

The Panthers and Red Storm will meet for the second time this season when their game gets under way following the conclusion of the earlier game between UConn and DePaul. Tip off is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN2.

Pittsburgh started off the season by winning 11 of their first 12 games, but a bad loss to Wagner in the game before they opened the Big East conference schedule was apparently a sign of things to come. The Panthers, led by senior guard Ashton Gibbs, ended up going 16-15 on the season with a 5-13 record in the Big East.

The Red Storm actually looked like a capable basketball team toward the end of the season, picking up three straight wins -- including one against then-No. 18 Notre Dame -- before adding a 20-point loss to the resume against Pitt on Feb. 29. Moe Harkless and Co. will have their chance at avenging that game on Tuesday afternoon, however, as they fight for an automatic big in the NCAA Tournament.
