NEW YORK (AP) - Defending Atlantic 10 champion Davidson and Pittsburgh, which both return four starters from last season, will meet in the Showcase Round of the fourth annual Gotham Classic at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 20.

Bob McKillop enters his 27th season as Davidson’s coach and he comes into the season four wins shy of 500, all with the Wildcats.

Eastern Washington, Morehead State, and Western Carolina complete the field for the 10-game event.

Both Davidson and Pittsburgh will host three games and the other schools will host one each. All of those games will take place from Dec. 9-23.

Pittsburgh and Davidson have played five times, the last on Jan. 9, 1974, a 90-63 win for Pitt. The Panthers went 25-4 that season, reaching the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history.
