Source: Pitt will host Missouri in next season's ACC/SEC Challenge.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) June 28, 2023
This is the first year of the ACC/SEC challenge and Pitt was given a nice opponent in MIzzou. The Tigers had an impressive turnaround last season going 25-10 and gaining a 7 seed in the NCAAT. They defeated Utah State before falling to cinderella Princeton in the second round. They had finished 12-21 the season before. Head coach Dennis Gates (who played for Cal in NCAAT against Pitt in 2002) is back for his second season after three successful years at Cleveland State.
