Pitt men's and women's basketball teams open up the 2013-14 season on Friday at the Petersen Events Center. The women tip off their first-ever season in the ACC at 11 a.m. against Bucknell for School Day and the men host Savannah State at 7 p.m. Learn everything you need to know about the Panthers before ever entering the Petersen Events Center with this digital game program.
You can listen online or follow stats at PittsburghPanthers.com for both games, while the men's game will also be broadcast live on ESPN3 and on the Panther Sports Radio Network (Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan locally).
Fans are reminded that you are able to pass along your tickets to friends and family, sell them online or donate to a charity if you are unable to attend through the Panthers' digital ticketing system. The Panthers Ticket Office opens 2.5 hours prior to tipoff for each game and will call and game day ticket sales (if available) are located at the outside windows at the front of the building.
Gates to the Petersen Events Center arena will open 1.5 hours prior to tipoff and a free shuttle service begins operating three hours prior to game time.
