Pitt women's basketball team to play international exhibitions in Italy this August

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Today, Pitt announced that they will play some international games in August as part of a tour to Italy. As in, this August. I'm not sure how these things are usually scheduled but it seems like a fairly late announcement with the trip taking place in less than three weeks.

The Lady Panthers will play three games during the trip from August 6-16.

Even though the trip is to Italy, they will only play one Italian team. The other two are from Germany and Holland. The first game will be against TK Hanover (Germany) on the 8th. A game against All-Star Italy is next on the 11th. Wrapping things up will be a game against Holland's FSG Academy on the 15th.

The official Pitt site has full details of the trip.
