PITTSBURGH — KDKA-TV will televise a live NCAA Tournament special — “March to the Motor City” — featuring Bob Pompeani and former Pitt great Curtis Aiken that will air Wednesday, March 18, from 7:30 to 8 p.m.
Pompeani and Aiken will take a look at the Pitt program and analyze the Panthers’ NCAA Tournament hopes. The special will also highlight the local college basketball scene as a whole.
