A quick take on Syracuse's disappointing 80-75 loss against Pittsburgh Saturday afternoon, at Petersen Events Center on the Pitt campus:

After initially asking for releases from their Letters of Intent following the hiring of Kevin Stallings, Justice Kithcart and Corey Manigault both reaffirmed their commitments to the University of Pittsburgh.

Manigault, a 6-foot-8 power forward from Fairfax (VA) Paul VI, announced his plans on Tuesday, while Kithcart, a 6-2 point guard from Virginia Episcopal, did so Thursday after speaking with Stallings.

"Justice spoke to Coach Stallings [Thursday night] and re-confirmed his commitment to Pitt" James Kithcart told SNY.tv. "He told me that he couldn't pass up the opportunity to compete for playing time in the ACC."
