Pitt will participate in 2013 Legends Classic

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt's basketball non-conference schedule for the upcoming season got a bit of a boost when it was announced the Panthers will play in the Legends Classic. It's actually been known for a while that Pitt would play in the event, but the opponents were announced on Tuesday. Joining Pitt will be Stanford, Texas Tech, and Houston. Depending on the outcomes, Pitt will play two of the teams.

The games will be played at the Barclays on November 26 and 27. As part of the event, Pitt will also play two 'regional' games at home between November 17-21.

Let's be honest, here - this isn't likely to boost the Panthers' RPI a ton. But there is a bit of quality here and that could help Pitt out a bit. Texas Tech was awful last year, but Joe Lunardi has Stanford as an NCAA Tournament team in his latest Bracketology rankings and Houston won 19 games.

This may not seem like a great event, but keep in mind that it's also difficult to get into marquee tournaments year after year. Pitt was in the NIT Season Tipoff event last season and will be in the Maui Invitational next year.
