Great call by Pitt and West Virginia to renew their basketball series (hello Kanas-Missouri, anyone there?). Four-year deal: at Pitt in 2017 and '19, at West Virginia in '18 and 20.

Nice to see Pittsburgh and West Virginia renewing the Backyard Brawl. Last time the two programs played was in 2012. They will start a four-game series in Pittsburgh in 2017. Nice job by Bob Huggins and Kevin Stallings – and good for college hoops (which needs more quality non-conference games).
