Pitt Basketball Head Coach Jeff Capel speaks to the media following the teams trip to Italy.

Pitt’s 20-game ACC men’s basketball schedule – two more conference games than in previous seasons – will stretch from early November to early March and feature a game at the Petersen Events Center against defending national champion Virginia.

The ACC announced its schedule Thursday night on the ACC Network.

Pitt’s previously announced conference opener will be Nov. 6 against Florida State at the reconfigured Pete. The teams’ benches will be located directly in front of the Oakland Zoo for the first time to maximize the student cheering section’s efforts for the benefit of television.

All 20 games will be televised, including nine on the ACC Network, six on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU and five on AT&T SportsNet.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
