    PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- No. 15 Pittsburgh will have revenge on its mind Tuesday when it hosts St. John's in a Big East Conference matchup.

    The Panthers, 5-3 in the Big East and winners of three of their last four games, suffered a 65-62 loss vs. the Red Storm on January 18 at Madison Square Garden.

    That setback came during a 2-3 slide for Pittsburgh, preceding its impressive three-game winning streak that closed out January.

    Any momentum Pittsburgh carried from that run was dashed Saturday in an 83-78 loss at West Virginia.

    Chevon Troutman scored 25 points and had eight rebounds, but the Panthers were unable to hold an 11-point second-half lead and had little left in overtime.

    Pittsburgh shot 50 percent (30-of-60) and had 20 assists against just 12 turnovers but were hurt by West Virginia's 13 3-pointers and allowed at least 70 points for the first time in Big East play.

    St. John's has won just one of five games since its win over Pittsburgh and will be playing the second of three straight games on the road.

    The Red Storm has failed to score more than 57 points in their last four games and produced a season low in a 68-46 loss at then-No. 20 Connecticut on Saturday.

    Daryll Hill maintained his Big East scoring lead with 22 points but, as often has been the case this season, got little help from his teammates. Aside from Hill, St. John's shot 9-of-43 (21 percent) and the team as a whole had just nine assists against 19 turnovers.

    The Red Storm have history on their side, however, with wins in eight of the last 10 meetings and a 32-15 series advantage.
