Report: Pitt to Host Morgan State as Part of 2020-21 Nonconference Schedule

Published

on

Pitt will host Morgan State as part of its 2020-21 home schedule, according to a report by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

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.

This is brilliant scheduling and may be the game that gets Pitt on the right side of .500 to become NIT-eligible.

I can hardly wait for the hype generated in Pittsburgh and Baltimore prior to this game. Duquesne, on the other hand, only generates a media buzz in Pittsburgh.
