With Wednesday's victory against Oregon State, the Washington State men's basketball team will host Pittsburgh at 7 p.m. Monday at Beasley Coliseum in Pullman in the College Basketball Invitational championship series opener.
The teams will play a best-of-three for the title, with Games 2 and 3 at Pittsburgh on March 28 and 30. All three games will be televised on HDNet.
Pittsburgh (20-16 overall) and Washington State (18-16) have only met once, with the Panthers winning 57-43 on Nov. 29, 2008 in the championship game of the Legends Classic.
Whether Brock Motum, who was injured in the win over Oregon State, is available to play remains in doubt. Motum is WSU's leading scorer this season.
