Pitt vs. Northern Illinois: Open Gamethread

NCAA Basketball: Drexel at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pitt men’s basketball team has a late addition to the schedule with a contest against Northern Illinois that was just added this week.

Pitt (1-1) will try to win its second game in a row after the shocking home opening loss to St. Francis. The Panthers haven’t looked great but they have looked better than Northern Illinois, which is 0-2 with losses to Illinois-Chicago and SIU Edwardsville. They are also not shooting well, connecting on only 40% of their field goal attempts so far this year.

Game time is at 7:00 p.m. and it’s a home contest at the Pete. Comment here live during the game — you can see it on WatchESPN.
