Junior Keon Parsa (West Hills, Calif./El Camino Real) has appeared in three games, including the last two victories, and has 16 saves along with three shutouts on the year.
Pitt (6-2-2) has dropped its last two contests after starting the season unbeaten through its first eight games. The squad has scored 15 goals in 10 games, one more strike than registered in all of last season's 18 games.
Freshman Nick Wysong and junior Nico Wrobel have scored five goals apiece for the Panthers this season, while five other players have scored a goal each. Sophomore goalkeeper Lee Johnston has 45 saves and is ranked ssecond in the Big East.
Georgetown is 20-5 all-time against the Panthers. The last meeting was a season ago at home where the Hoyas won, 6-2. The last meeting on the road was a 1-0 Georgetown victory in 2010.
