Pitt’s Non-Conference Schedule Still Up in the Air, Two Months from Season Start

Pitt’s Non-Conference Schedule Still Up in the Air, Two Months from Season Start

The start of the 2020-21 college basketball season is only 57 days away but details and scheduling is still very much uncertain.

Athletic departments around the country are in discussions about how they’ll fill their non-conference schedule and deciding if they’ll be taking part in early season tournaments that they had already committed to play in.

That’s certainly the case with Jeff Capel and the Pitt Panthers. Prior to COVID-19, Pitt was scheduled to play in the Myrtle Beach Invitational, but that’s not a guarantee anymore.

Instead of Myrtle Beach, the event is now going to be played in Orlando, Florida and the exact field of teams is up in the air. College basketball insider Jeff Goodman reported on Monday night that both Dayton and Nebraska were dropping out.

Goodman also wrote that Pitt is “leaning towards withdrawing” but a source close to the Pitt basketball program told Pittsburgh Sports Now that the “decision has not been made yet.”

At this point, the Pitt athletic department hasn’t officially confirmed any non-conference games since it was announced the new start up of the basketball season on Nov. 25.
