Penn State's basketball team hasn't played Pittsburgh since 2005 or West Virginia since 1991, but that might change in the next few years.
At the 16th annual Coaches vs. Cancer Golf Tournament on Friday, coach Patrick Chambers talked about the Nittany Lions' schedule. He said he is in talks with Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon and West Virginia's Bob Huggins about playing the Panthers and Mountaineers sometime in the future.
"That's something Jamie and I are in the middle of talking about," Chambers said about playing Pittsburgh. "It's definitely not going to happen this year, but maybe sometime in the future. Another one, I talked to coach Huggins from West Virginia, maybe get that going again. Because I know back in the day, I've talked with some former players, they used to play West Virginia all the time. So maybe get that back into the fold."
The Lions are 76-68 against Pittsburgh all-time, but haven't had recent success, as they are 7-19 in their last 26 meetings dating back to 1972. Penn State is 53-66 all-time against West Virginia.
Chambers also gave reporters some insight on the 2012-13 schedule.
Penn State will be participating in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off tournament, and Chambers mentioned the team will also face St. Francis (Pa.), Bucknell, Duquesne, Boston College and LaSalle in its nonconference slate.
