The Texas Tech Men’s Basketball Team Takes on the Pittsburgh Panthers in the Progressive Legends Classic

The Texas Tech men’s basketball team will get a real sense of where they are at as a program tonight as they take on the undefeated Pittsburgh Panthers in their third game of the Progressive Legends Classic.  Tubby Smith and company enter the game at 4-1 including a victory in their previous game against South Dakota State last week.  They went on to win that game by a score of 68-54.

This is the Red Raiders second appearance in the event. Texas Tech also played in the 2008 edition of the tournament, finishing third with a 3-1 record.  Ironically, Texas Tech also faced off against Pittsburgh in the tournament semifinals in 2008, with the Panthers edging out the Red Raiders , 80-67.  That being said though, Pittsburgh is currently 4-0 on the season after securing wins over Savannah State (88-55), Fresno State (75-54), Howard (84-52) and Lehigh (77-58), but the Panthers have yet to venture away from their home court.

Tip off for tonight’s game is set 5:30 pm for at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and can be seen on ESPN 2.
