Since the Petersen Events Center opened in 2002, Pitt has played 61 games at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, Barclays Center in Brooklyn and Meadowlands Arena and Prudential Center in North Jersey.

Pitt is 3-4 all-time at Barclays Center and has lost four straight there. The Panthers are 1-3 all-time against St. Louis. The last meeting was a 69-58 victory for Pitt at Petersen Events Center in 2007. The other three meetings all occurred in the 1950s.

St. Louis will face a Pittsburgh-based opponent three times in 2018-19. The Billikens are one of Duquesne’s five home-and-home opponents that were announced by the Atlantic 10 conference on Wednesday.
