PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - The Pitt men’s basketball program released its non-conference schedule Monday, hosting nine games at the Petersen Events Center as part of its 13 game non-conference lineup.

Some of the highlights include the 186th Backyard Brawl against West Virginia December 8 in Morgantown, the ACC/Big Ten Challenge matchup against Iowa November 27 in Des Moines and the Annual City Game against Duquesne November 30 at PPG Paints Arena.

“We have put together a balanced non-conference schedule that will help us prepare for conference play,” said head coach Jeff Capel in a press release. “A couple of our marquee matchups in non-conference play will be on the road but our home schedule is loaded when you look at the fact we are hosting seven NCAA Tournament teams from a year ago in conference play. We are excited about the opportunity we have this season and look forward to seeing some great crowds at the Pete.”

Pitt will play a November 1 exhibition again against Pitt-Johnstown then opens the season against Youngstown State, both at the Petersen Events Center.
