More from the arena

A couple other tidbits from the Petersen Events Center:
— Word is that Gray and Hawes won’t match up directly much, if at all, with Pitt likely using Levon Kendall to defend Hawes while putting Gray on Brockman, with UW doing the same on the other end.
— Among those in the UW section are former Husky Jason Hartman, who played a few years during the Bender era before transferring to Portland State and now lives in this area; and Ray Horton, the former UW football player who is now an assistant with the Steelers.
— This arena is built on top of where the football stadium used to be, where Dan Marino, Tony Dorsett, Mike Ditka and others played. The cabbie who drove me here lamented that Pitt football has never been the same, that the focus of the school shifted from football to basketball when that happened — the football team now plays at Heinz Field, the home of the Steelers, with students being bused down there for the games.
