MBB GAME THREAD: Pitt vs UT-Martin

Welcome back, college basketball

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Pittsburgh vs Boston College Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports


The Pittsburgh Panthers’ Men’s basketball will make their regular season debut as they take on the UT-Martin Skyhawks. The game will be streaming over on ESPN+.

Click here for the game preview.

Pitt is currently an 8.5 favorite with an over/under of 140.

While you can never take any opponent too lightly, especially where Pitt has finished the last few years under coach Capel. The one thing most of those who follow the Panthers will be looking for is just how this new team plays together. While missing John Hugley for tonight’s game will not paint the whole picture, it will still be intriguing to see how the Panthers look in regular-season action. With a basketball backyard brawl coming up on Friday, the Panthers will need to use this game to blend a few new pieces together and establish an identity of what they want to do on the court. Both Pitt and UT-Martin had struggled on the offensive side a season ago, so it will be interesting to see how these offense look to start the new season.

We like to take the time to welcome everyone back for the first game thread under the new Cardiac Hill.
