DeJuan Blair should be good to go for No. 1 Pittsburgh’s game with Marquette on Wednesday.
“DeJuan is expected to play on Wednesday,” Pitt spokesman Greg Hotchkiss said. “He hyperextended his knee while locking knees with the Seton Hall player [Jeremy Hazell]. He is listed as day-to-day for practice [Monday] and should play on Wednesday.”
Blair and Hazell banged knees early in the first half of Pitt’s 89-78 victory over the Pirates Saturday night at The Prudential Center.
