Game Preview: Pitt Basketball vs. Saint Francis (PA) – November 25, 2020 – 7pm

Hello Pitt fans, and welcome to the forums for our first live game thread of the early season, as Pitt (0-0, 0-0) squares off with Saint Francis (PA) (0-0, 0-0) at the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, Pa. on Wednesday night, in Pitt’s 2020-21 season opener.

It’s great to have Pitt hoops back on Thanksgiving-eve, and to do our first live game thread since the ACC tournament this past spring. This is sure to be a weird basketball season, and with the unpredictability of COVID, we likely won’t know who is available (or unavailable) for Pitt (or their opponent) with much advance notice. I expect that some games will be cancelled throughout the year, and maybe several games; I also expect that Pitt will play some games with notable absences. We’ll have to take that day-by-day.

With that being said, it’s great to be back talking Pitt hoops, and without further ado, here’s your game preview for the season opener. Tonight’s game will be broadcast at 7pm EST on AT&T SportsNet. And make sure to drop by the live game thread on the message board to talk Pitt hoops during the game!
