Pitt vs. Lehigh: Open Gamethread

James Lang-US PRESSWIRE
Loading Scores
After defeating Fordham last night, Pitt's got a quick turnaround and will need to defeat Lehigh to have the right to head to New York City and continue on in the Preseason NIT. Game time is at 9:00 p.m. and this one's on ESPNU.

If you're going under the assumption that this will be an easy one for Pitt, think again. Lehigh made the NCAA tournament last year and beat second-seeded Duke (in Greensboro, NC, no less). They won't be intimidated playing in the Pete and these are the games that mid-major programs get up for. They were beaten pretty handily by ranked Baylor this season, but also beat up on Robert Morris last night, so draw your own conclusions. This will be a great benchmark for Pitt early in the season.

Be sure to leave your pregame thoughts in the comments section and check back at 9:00 p.m. to comment live during the game.
