The Pittsburgh Panthers, West Virginia Mountaineers, and Penn St. Nittany Lions began their 2011/12 college hoops seasons last weekend and have yet to lose. They look to remain undefeated as they take the court this week and continue their campaigns.

Pitt, which entered the season ranked No. 10, opened its season with an 89-56 defeat of the Albany, N.Y. Great Danes. The three-point shot fueled the Panthers' attack, as they connected on 13-of-22 (59.1 percent) of their offerings beyond the arc. The backcourt of Ashton Gibbs and Tray Woodall proved too much for the Great Danes to handle, combining for 46 points on 17-of-30 shooting, with eight three-pointers.

Sunday, they narrowly edged the Rider Broncs, 86-78, behind 24 points from Gibbs and 22 from Nasir Robinson, who shot 9-of-10 from the field. Four of the six Broncs to play more than two minutes scored in double-figures, led by Anthony Myles' 20 points.

The Panthers' lone game this week is against the Long Beach St. 49ers (1-0) on Wednesday, Nov. 16, with tipoff scheduled for 9 PM Eastern. ESPN U has the television broadcast, while 93.7 The Fan will provide radio coverage.

The Mountaineers began their season with a 78-71 win against the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles on Sunday behind 20 points from Kevin Jones. They prevailed despite 21 turnovers--six of the top eight West Virginia players committed at least three turnovers--and a 13-rebound deficit. Their season continues Tuesday morning against the Kent St. Golden Flashes (0-0) at 10 AM Eastern in a game broadcast by ESPN as part of the network's 24 hours of college basketball.

West Virginia then battles the Alcorn St. Braves (1-0) on Thursday, Nov. 17, at 7 PM Eastern. ESPN3 has television coverage, while MSN's 43 local affiliates, as always, have the radio broadcast.

Penn State takes on the Radford Highlanders on Monday, Nov. 14, as part of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament. Follow that contest in this StoryStream on SB Nation Pittsburgh.

Next up after Radford, Penn State hosts the Long Island U. Blackbirds (0-1) on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 7 PM.
