Pitt basketball to play Howard and Lehigh as part of 2013 Legends Classic

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Pitt's basketball schedule for the upcoming season is still a big unknown. However, two more non-conference opponents were officially announced by the school as part of their press release on the Duke Big Monday game.

The Panthers will take on some familiar faces in both Howard and Lehigh at the Pete as part of the 2013 Legends Classic. Those games will serve as a precursor to the four-team 'finals' when Pitt will first take on Texas Tech and then either Stanford or Houston at the Barclays.

Neither is a big-time matchup, obviously. Pitt took on both schools last year and won each game handily. The game against Lehigh at least featured C.J. McCollum, but he left for the NBA in this past draft so that game becomes even less interesting.

The good news is that despite the outcome of those two games, Pitt will face two major-conference teams in the games at the Barclays that will hopefully boost their RPI a little.
