Pitt women’s basketball team opens ACC play against Virginia

NCAA Womens Basketball: Notre Dame at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pitt women’s basketball team starts ACC play on Thursday as the Panthers will face Virginia.

The team actually isn’t quite done with non-conference play. After facing the Cavaliers, Pitt (7-5)will play a game against Chicago State. But following that contest, it’s all ACC games for the rest of the regular season.

Unlike the men’s team which opens conference play against a Top 25 Miami team, the women’s team starts out a little easier. Virginia is no guaranteed win for the Panthers, but at only 7-6, they are likely one of the weaker teams in the ACC this season.

The teams have one common opponent so far as each lost to Duquesne. If those games were any indication of how much can be expected of Pitt and Virginia this year, they should be pretty evenly matched. The Panthers lost their game to Duquesne by 13 while Virginia lost by 11.

Game time is at 7:00 p.m. and you can see it on WatchESPN.
