Morgan State, which is located in Baltimore, Maryland, plays in the MEAC and finished the 2019-20 season with a 15-16 record. According to KenPom.com, the Bears were the No. 322 team in the country and they finished No. 312 in the NCAA’s NET rankings.
The Panthers are 2-0 all-time against Morgan State, winning at home in 1982 and in 2001. Pitt is 29-0 all-time against opponents from the MEAC, a conference of historically black colleges and universities.
The Bears are coached by former Binghamton coach and longtime Washington, D.C.-area assistant Kevin Broadus.
Morgan State is the second confirmed opponent for Pitt’s 2020-21 non-conference schedule, joining West Virginia. Pitt will also play in the Myrtle Beach Invitational, where the Panthers will play three games against Charlotte, Dayton, Loyola, Nebraska, Missouri, Penn and/or Utah State. Pitt will also have a game against a Big Ten team in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge that has not yet been announced.
With the ACC moving to a 20-game schedule in advance of the 2019-20 season, that leaves five unaccounted-for opponents for the Panthers to get to the NCAA maximum of 31 games.
