The 1927–28 Pittsburgh Panthers men's basketball team represented the University of Pittsburgh during the 1927–28 NCAA men's basketball season in the United States. The head coach was Doc Carlson, coaching in his sixth season with the Panthers. The team finished the season with a 21–0 record[1] and were named national champions by the Helms Athletic Foundation[2] (two seasons later, the Panthers would once again be named Helms national champions).[2] It is the only undefeated team in Pitt's history, and that season they were one of only two teams to finish with an unblemished record.[3] Chuck Hyatt and Sykes Reed were named consensus All-Americans at the end of the season.
