Pitt to play Indiana in ACC/Big Ten Challenge
Pitt will play at Indiana on Dec. 2 at Assembly Hall in the 16th ACC/Big Ten Challenge, marking a coaching matchup between former Big East rivals Jamie Dixon and former Marquette coach Tom Crean.
The Panthers haven't played at Indiana in 73 years, since a 50-41 loss to the Hoosiers on Dec. 26, 1941. This will be the ninth meeting between Pitt and Indiana in a series split, 4-4, between the schools.
The Hoosiers won the most recent meeting, 74-64, at the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden in December 2009. The Panthers beat Indiana, 74-52, in the 2002 NCAA second round.
The game is one of 14 between the two conferences in a three-day span in December, and every game will be televised on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU. The conferences tied, 6-6, last year for the Commissioners Cup, but the ACC holds a 10-3-1 advantage in challenge play and an 88-67 lead in all challenge games.
Pitt beat Penn State, 78-69, in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge last December at Petersen Events Center.
