Pitt's players watched without any visible emotion as Kevin Stallings was ejected one day after he ripped them for a lack of leadership and "buy-in." Their coach walked off the court at the Petersen Events Center with 14:27 to play, clearly dismayed with what had already unfolded during No. 13 Louisville's 106-51 destruction of the Panthers on Tuesday night, the program's worst loss since 1906.

The moment was emblematic of Pitt's struggles under Stallings, who was assessed a double technical, during its five-game losing streak in ACC play, and he stuck with the same tone and directive used Monday morning to criticize his players.
