The Syracuse Orange now know who they will meet Wednesday night in Charlotte, North Carolina.

It will be the Pittsburgh Panthers.

After Tuesday night's rout of the Boston College Eagles, the Panthers advance to meet the Orange for the third time this season.

Pittsburgh cruised behind Trey McGowens' 26 points, using a 25-3 run to end the first half, resulting in the lopsided win.

Syracuse defeated Pittsburgh twice already during the regular season, once at the Carrier Dome and the other time at the Petersen Events Center.

The first time around in mid-January, the Orange were led by Tyus Battle's 22 points in the 74-63 win.

The second time around in early February, Syracuse was led by Oshae Brissett's 18 points in the 65-56 victory.
