The next closest program has five straight appearances. ■ Advanced to the NCAA Regional Final/Elite Eight for the first time since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64-teams. ■ Advanced to NCAA Sweet Sixteen play five times in the last eight seasons. Only two programs have advanced to more Sweet Sixteens during that span (Duke-6 and Kansas-6) and two others have tied that achievement (Texas-5 and Connecticut-5). ■ Became one of only eight schools nationwide to advance to the NCAA Tournament in each of the past eight seasons (2001-09). The eight schools include: Arizona, Duke, Gonzaga, Kansas, Michigan State, Pitt, Texas and Wisconsin. ■ Claimed three straight Big East regular season titles (2002, 2003, 2004). ■ Captured two Big East Tournament titles (2003 and 2008). ■ Ascended to the nation’s No. 1 ranking for the first time in school history (2008-09). ■ Awarded with a No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history (2008-09). ■ Surpassed both 20 wins overall and 10 wins in Big East regular season play for a school-record eight consecutive seasons.

The team’s lone returning starter, senior Jermaine Dixon returns to the Panthers for his final season. The younger brother of NBA player and former Maryland guard Juan Dixon, Jermaine emerged as the Panthers’ starting off-guard after transferring in from Tallahassee Junior College (Fla.). A natural and reliable scorer and Pitt’s top perimeter defender, Dixon averaged 8.4 points and 2.0 assists per game, contributed a 2.00 assist:turnover ratio and converted 32 3-pointers while starting all 36 of Pitt’s games last year. He also ranked second on the squad in steals with 51. Look for the lefthanded Dixon to emerge as a top scoring option and leader.

SEASON PREVIEW

SEASON PREVIEW Pitt returns one starter from record-breaking 200910 team that advanced to Elite Eight and finished 31-5; Panthers look to find emerging new stars Pitt’s 2008-09 season proved to be one of the greatest in its illustrious 102-year basketball history. Pitt won a school best three NCAA Tournament games and advanced to its first NCAA Regional Final since 1974. The Panthers tied a school record with a 31-5 overall record and 15-3 Big East slate. Pitt earned the school’s first-ever No. 1 national ranking and held the rating for three weeks. Pitt received its first-ever No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament. Pitt defeated the nation’s No. 1 ranked team two times during the season, becoming just the ninth team in NCAA Division I history to achieve such a feat. The Panthers also finished the year with an undefeated 19-0 record at home. Gone from that accomplished team are four of its five starters—DeJuan Blair, Sam Young, Levance Fields and

Tyrell Biggs. The impact of that foursome was enormous. A consensus First Team All-American, Blair developed into an unstoppable doubledouble machine who led the nation in offensive rebounding. Young proved to be one of the best scorers in school history, along with one of its most athletic and entertaining players of alltime. Fields emerged as one of the top clutch scorers, playmakers and leaders in school history. Biggs proved to be an experienced, versatile performer with multiple skills. All four are playing basketball professionally including two in the NBA (Blair and Young). Three of the four earned All-America honors. Three surpassed the 1,000-point mark for a career. The foursome also accounted for 286 total career starts, 4,714 points, 2,282 rebounds and 932 assists.

PITT’S PRESEASON STORYLINES

64

n Pitt begins its quest for a ninth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and ninth straight season with 20 or more wins. n Pitt must find a way to replace four departed starters including NBA players in center DeJuan Blair and small forward Sam Young, power forward Tyrell Biggs and point guard Levance Fields. Over the last four seasons, the foursome combined for 286 starts, 4,714 points, 2,282 rebounds and 932 assists. Blair, Fields and Young each finished with over 1,000 points apiece. n Last season, Pitt finished with a school-record tying 31-5 overall record, advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight/Regional Final for the first time in 35 years, ascended to the nation’s No. 1 national ranking for the first time in school history and earned a No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history. n Pitt returns one starter in senior off guard Jermaine Dixon. The Panthers also return several letterwinners with experience including junior guard Brad Wanamaker, junior center Gary McGhee, sophomore guard Ashton Gibbs and sophomore forward Nasir Robinson. Freshmen Dwight Miller and Travon Woodall also return to the mix after redshirting the 2008-09 season. n Head Coach Jamie Dixon enters his seventh season at Pitt with a 163-45 overall record. The 163 victories set an NCAA Division I all-time record for most wins after the first six seasons as a head coach. Dixon also became the first coach in school history to guide Pitt to six straight NCAA Tournaments, six consecutive 20-win seasons and six straight 10plus league win years. This summer he guided the USA Basketball Under-19 Team to the FIBA World Championship title with an undefeated 9-0 record. Pitt’s Ashton Gibbs also played on the title-winning squad. n Once again, Pitt will play a difficult schedule in 2009-10. Combining the last seven seasons, Pitt has ranked No. 4 nationally in average RPI. The Panthers will play an 18-game Big East schedule for the third consecutive season. Pitt will also play 21 games against opponents advancing to postseason play in 2008-09 and 10 contests versus teams advancing to the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Opponents highlighting Pitt’s nonconference slate include Indiana in the Jimmy V Classic, Texas, Iowa and Wichita State in the O’Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic and the final basketball played game in Mellon Arena against Duquesne. n Pitt welcomes five newcomers including a four-member freshman class of Lamar Patterson, J.J. Richardson, Dante Taylor and Talib Zanna. The four-member class has been ranked among the nation’s top-25 recruiting classes by Scout.com, Rivals.com, ESPN-U and hoopscooponline. Pitt also adds a transfer in senior Chase Adams from Centenary. A Baltimore native, Adams is eligible to compete immediately because Centenary is moving from NCAA Division I competition to NCAA Division III.

2009-10 PITT BASKETBALL

Senior Jermaine Dixon is the lone returning starter back from last year. In 36 starts, Dixon finished the 2008-09 season with 15 double figure scoring games and ranked second on the squad with 51 steals.

Never before in recent history has the Pitt Basketball program had to replace this much collective experience and talent. Pitt enters the 2009-10 season with a youthful and talented team. Head Coach Jamie Dixon must find the next set of stars to lead the program. Here is a position-by-position look at the 2009-10 Pitt Panthers.

FORWARDS Pitt must replace three veteran frontcourt players in Blair, Young and Biggs, but the Panthers return several players with experience and a talented four-member freshman class.

Sophomore Nasir Robinson returns to the mix at small forward. The versatile Robinson, who saw action in 29 games last year at multiple positions, scored 34 points and grabbed 35 rebounds in 186 minutes of action. He is an athletic, high-energy, aggressive and hard-nosed competitor who excels at rebounding, passing and defense. Freshman Dwight Miller, a Bahamas native, is back after redshirting the 2008-09 season. The burly, athletic and hard working Miller owns a variety of skills. He is an aggressive rebounder and physical performer who can play either on the outside or inside.

UPPER LEFT: Teamwork remains the key to Pitt’s success in 2009-10 as the Panthers must replace four departed starters: center DeJuan Blair, forward Sam Young, forward Tyrell Biggs and point guard Levance Fields. Blair and Young were both selected in the 2009 NBA Draft, while Biggs and Fields are playing professionally overseas. ABOVE: Ashton Gibbs, Brad Wanamaker, Gary McGhee, Nasir Robinson and Travon Woodall will all enter the 2009-10 season with expanded roles. FAR LEFT: Brad Wanamaker showed flashes of stellar offensive production last season off the bench. He concluded the 2008-09 season with five double figure scoring games including a 15point effort at Rutgers, a 13-point outing vs. Connecticut and 13 points vs. Notre Dame. His role will expand this season. LEFT: Nasir Robinson contributed at three different positions last season off the bench. He will be counted upon to produce at both small forward and power forward.

Freshman power forward Dante Taylor is in his first season at Pitt after earning McDonald’s All-America honors last year. A highly skilled, tough and physically imposing performer, the 6foot-9-inch Taylor averaged 24 points, 13 rebounds per game and converted 65 percent of his field goals last year as a senior at National Christian Academy. The Washington Post All-MET Player of the Year, Taylor won the McDonald’s All-American Skills

Competition and was ranked as a consensus top-30 recruit nationally. He will contribute immediately. Providing a different look at the low post positions is 6-foot-8-inch Talib Zanna. Described as a strong, quick athlete, the Kaduna, Nigeria native starred at Bishop McNamara H.S. (Md.) for the last three seasons where he averaged a double-double (14.6 ppg./11.8 rpg) as a senior. Also entering the mix at the post positions is underrated freshman J.J. Richardson. The 6-foot-7-inch Richardson arrives at Pitt from Missouri City, Texas and Fort Bend Hightower H.S. where he caught the Pitt coaching staff’s eye at several AAU Tournaments prior to his senior year. Freshman Lamar Patterson will be asked to contribute immediately at small forward. The younger brother of former Syracuse quarterback Perry Patterson, he owns a smooth jumper and stellar perimeter skills. He played his senior season at nationally acclaimed St. Benedict’s Prep (N.J.) where he helped lead his team to a No. 7 national ranking and berth in the ESPN Rise National High School Invitational.

CENTER

After serving two seasons as a backup center off the bench, junior Gary McGhee returns as the team’s lone true center. The 6-foot-10, 250pounder offers size and a more traditional post-up look on both the offensive and defensive ends. McGhee has seen action in 52 career games. His playing style has been compared to former Pitt All-America center Aaron Gray.

GUARDS Pitt must make up for the loss of four-year point guard Levance Fields, but the Panthers return players with experience to fill the void. As Pitt’s lone returning starter, senior Jermaine Dixon is back after averaging 8.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and ABOVE RIGHT-CORNER: Guard Ashton Gibbs led the Big East Conference in 3-point field goal percentage last season. He hit 44 percent of his 3-pointers and provided clutch shooting off the bench for Pitt as a freshman. ABOVE FAR RIGHT: Freshman Travon Woodall spent the 2008-09 season as a redshirt. He will contribute at point guard in the coming season. ABOVE RIGHT: Junior Brad Wanamaker has played in 66 career games and 1,014 minutes. He will be counted upon for leadership and scoring. IMMEDIATE RIGHT: Ashton Gibbs played on Jamie Dixon’s USA Basketball Under-19 National Team this summer. The squad captured the FIBA World Championships with an undefeated 9-0 record. FAR RIGHT: Junior Gary McGhee has seen action in 52 career games as a backup center. He will counted upon to contribute in the coming season.

2.0 assists per game. He also reached double figure scoring 15 times and contributed a 2.00 assist:turnover ratio. The lefthanded off guard contributed slashing ability, stellar outside shooting and emerged as Pitt’s top perimeter defender. A natural scorer and penetrator, he was the perfect complement to Fields in the backcourt as he effectively was assigned the burden of guarding the opponent’s top scoring guard. This season, he will be counted upon for scoring and leadership. Also returning with experience and leadership ability is junior Brad Wanamaker. The 6-foot-4, 210pounder offers a combination of size, strength, quickness and versatility. As a key contributor off the bench last year, Wanamaker showed remarkable improvement in his shooting and scoring as the junior hit 44 percent of his 3-pointers in Big East play and reached double figure scoring five times. Last year he averaged 5.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists per contest. Sophomore combination guard Ashton Gibbs returns to the Pitt backcourt following a stellar freshman year. Utilized primarily for shooting and ball handling off the bench, Gibbs led the Big East Conference in 3-point

Dwight Miller is a physical, versatile power forward. He redshirted the 2008-09 campaign and will compete for playing time in the coming season.

Lone returning senior Jermaine Dixon provided a perfect defensive complement to Levance Fields in the backcourt last year. He will be counted upon for scoring in 2009-10.

percentage (.439), averaged 4.3 points and 1.0 3-pointers made per contest. This summer, Gibbs starred for Dixon’s USA Basketball Under-19 Team, which won the FIBA World Championships with an undefeated 9-0 record. He started six of the team’s nine games, led the squad in minutes played and averaged 9.8 points per game. Look for Gibbs to play a key role in 2009-10. Redshirt freshman Travon Woodall also is back after completing a full season at Pitt. The quick, multitalented Woodall saw action in 10 games last year before suffering a knee injury. He will see action at point guard. In August, Pitt added a transfer in senior Baltimore native Chase Adams. The quick, versatile and experienced Adams will see action at point guard. He arrives at Pitt after he earned Summit League Defensive Player of the Year honors, finished eighth in the nation in steals (83) and averaged 14.6 points and 4.5 assists per game last year at Centenary. He is eligible to compete immediately since Centenary opted to move from NCAA Division I to NCAA Division III. Also contributing at the guard positions are junior walk-ons Tim Frye and Nick Rivers.

ESPN’s Joe Lunardi, Pitt ranks fourth nationally in average RPI combining the last eight years (2002-09), trailing only Duke, Kansas and North Carolina. Pitt’s RPI ranking is proof that it continues to play top-notch competition. Overall, Pitt will play 21 games against teams who advanced to postseason play last season and 10 contests against schools advancing to the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Pitt will play its annual 18-game Big East Conference schedule and face each of the 15 league opponents at least once. Pitt’s three repeat opponents include St. John’s, Seton Hall and West Virginia. Pitt will play nine home games and nine away contests. Home opponents at the Petersen Events Center will include DePaul, Georgetown, Louisville, Providence, Rutgers, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Villanova and West Virginia. The Panthers’ 2009-10 road opponents include Cincinnati, Connecticut, Marquette, Notre Dame, St. John’s, Seton Hall, South Florida, Syracuse and West Virginia. Highlighting Pitt’s 13-game nonconference schedule are two contests in the O’Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic at the Sprint Center in Kansas City against Wichita State and either Iowa or Texas, and the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden against Indiana. Pitt will also play Duquesne at Mellon Arena in the final basketball game in the 50-year old facility.

Last year he set an NCAA Division I record for most wins after six seasons as a head coach (163) and his current .698 league winning percentage ranks No. 1 among all-time Big East coaches. This past summer, Dixon guided the USA Basketball Under-19 Team to the FIBA World Championship Gold Medal, the squad’s first title in 18 years. Dixon has put together an outstanding coaching staff. With the staff’s unique blend of experience, contacts, talent, technical knowledge and personality, Pitt’s coaching staff of Tom Herrion, Pat Sandle, Brandin Knight, Brian Regan and Rasheen Davis rates among the nation’s best.

Beginning his seventh season as the University of Pittsburgh’s head men’s basketball coach, Jamie Dixon has certainly made his mark on the Pitt program. Dixon, who is in his 11th year at Pitt, has compiled several coaching milestones: n Set an all-time NCAA Division I record for most wins after six seasons as a head coach in 2009 with his 163 career victories. n Guided Pitt to its first-ever NCAA Regional Final and Elite Eight appearance, a school-best 31-5 record, the school’s first-ever No. 1 national ranking and the program’s first-ever No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament in 2008-09. n Named the 2009 Naismith National Coach of the Year. n Led the USA Basketball Under-19 Team to the 2009 FIBA World Championship Gold Medal and 9-0 record after inheriting an overhauled roster and assuming head coaching duties a month before the competition began. n Concluded the 2008-09 season as the winningest coach in Big East history with a current .698 winning percentage in league games (8135), while besting several legendary names including John Thompson, Jim Calhoun, Jim Boeheim and Lou Carnesseca. n Became the first head coach in school history to guide Pitt to six consecutive 20-win seasons, six straight 10-plus win Big East regular seasons and six straight NCAA Tournaments. Dixon has also guided Pitt to three NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances (2004, 2007 and 2009). n Guided Pitt to its second all-time Big East Championship title in 2008. The Panthers became just the second squad in league history to capture the crown after winning four consecutive games. n Guided Pitt to the Big East Championship Final in four of his first five seasons as head coach. n Is one of only nine coaches in NCAA Division I history to win over 100 games during the first four seasons of a coaching career. n Reached 100 wins at Pitt faster than any other head coach in school history. Dixon needed only 126

2009-10 PITT BASKETBALL

games to reach the milestone. Only 14 coaches in the history of college basketball reached 100 career victories faster than Dixon. n Amassed a six-year 70-30 Big East regular-season record, the best mark in school history. n Tallied a 99-10 home record in his first six seasons. n Became the first rookie head coach in Big East history to both guide his team to the league’s regular season title and earn Big East Coach of the Year honors in 2003-04. Dixon earned those accolades after leading the Panthers to their third consecutive Big East regular season title and second all-time overall Big East title, third straight NCAA Tournament “Sweet Sixteen” appearance and to a school-record 31 wins. In addition, the 31 victories rank as the third highest total in NCAA Division I history for a firstyear head coach. Dixon also led Pitt on an 18-game win streak to begin the 2003-04 season, a streak which ranks as the third-best start for a rookie head coach in NCAA Division I history. An outstanding talent evaluator who is nationally recognized for his coaching know-how, unquestioned character and integrity, recruiting skills, rapport with players and work ethic, Jamie Dixon was introduced as the University of Pittsburgh’s 14th head basketball coach on April 15, 2003. Dixon, who has spent 10 seasons as both the head coach and assistant at Pitt, is a basketball coach who is intelligent, honest, confident, wellspoken and true to his word. He is a family man and complete coach who cares for his players and program to the highest degree. For Dixon, basketball is a lifestyle, not a job. He believes teamwork, offensive efficiency, defense, rebounding and taking good shots are the key ingredients to winning championships. That philosophy has paid off as Pitt consistently ranks among the nation’s top offensive, defensive and rebounding squads. Dixon’s six-year head coaching tenure at Pitt has seen the Panthers compile a remarkable 163-45 record, accumulate a 70-30 Big East regular

Pitt advanced to NCAA Sweet Sixteen play for the fourth time in six seasons and achieved its sixth straight 20-win overall and 10-win league year.

Nevertheless, under Dixon’s leadership, the undermanned Panthers continued on. Fields returned for the team’s final 13 games and Pitt went on to a successful season. Pitt captured the school’s second Big East Tournament title, becoming just the second team in league history to win the tourney by registering four straight wins, advanced to its seventh straight NCAA Tournament and finished 27-10 overall. The recently completed 2008-09 season was Pitt’s most successful to date as the Panthers achieved numerous program milestones including a school-record tying 31-5 record, the school’s first-ever appearance in the NCAA Regional Final and Elite Eight, the program’s first-ever No. 1 national ranking (for three weeks) and Pitt’s first-ever No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament.

BRANDIN KNIGHT ASSISTANT COACH Pittsburgh ‘05 n Fourth Season at Pitt Former University of Pittsburgh star and retired No. 20 jersey honoree Brandin Knight begins his second year as an assistant basketball coach at Pitt. In his fourth season on Pitt Head Coach Jamie Dixon’s coaching staff, Knight served the 2006-07 year as its Program Assistant/Video Coordinator and the 2007-08 season as Director of Men’s Basketball Operations. In his role as an assistant coach, Knight is responsible for recruiting student-athletes, scouting opponents, game preparation and on-floor coaching. “Brandin has always been a tremendous asset for our program,” Dixon said. “As a player, Brandin proved to be a coach on the floor and he has developed through the years into an outstanding basketball coach. He has been a terrific role model for our players and he was instrumental in turning our program around. In addition, he has always remained loyal to Pitt.”

Following his Pitt career, Knight played two seasons with the NBDL’s Asheville Altitude. He helped lead the Altitude to back-to-back league titles in both 2003-04 and 200405. In 2005, he signed a contract with the NBA’s Houston Rockets, but suffered a knee injury two weeks later. Knight spent the following two years in Pittsburgh rehabbing the injury. Knight has coached several AAU teams, including a squad that captured the Under-16 Pittsburgh Jamfest title in 2006. A Pitt point guard from 19992003, Knight’s leadership was largely responsible for Pitt’s recent basketball renaissance. The transformation of Pitt’s basketball program into a national power can be traced directly through Knight who led the dramatic turnaround. Pitt finished 13-15 during his freshman year, improved to 19-14 with a surprise Big East Championship Finals appearance and NIT berth as a sophomore, then

burst onto the national stage with a 29-6 record, Big East West regular season title, national top-10 ranking and NCAA Sweet Sixteen berth during his junior season in 200102. As a senior in 2002-03, Knight’s Panthers maintained that success with a 28-5 record, co-Big East West title and second straight NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearance. In the end, Knight helped lead Pitt to two consecutive Big East regular season titles (2001-02 and 2002-03), two NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances (2002 and 2003), the program’s first-ever Big East Tournament title (2003), three consecutive appearances in the Big East Tournament final (2001, 2002, and 2003) and an 89-40 (.690) four-year record. A 2003 Wooden All-America team selection, 2002 Associated Press All-America team member and two-time All-Big East honoree, Knight concluded his career with 1,440 points, 785 assists, 492 rebounds and 298 steals. He earned the Big East’s co-

Most Valuable Player and Most Improved Player awards in 200102. Knight still holds school records for career assists (785), career assist average (6.2 apg.), career steals (298) and season minutes played (1,284 in 2001-02). Knight’s No. 20 jersey was retired in a ceremony prior to the Panthers’ Marquette game on March 6, 2009. Knight, who graduated with a History degree from Pitt in June, 2005, is a native of East Orange, N.J. His brother Brevin, a 12-year NBA veteran who currently plays for the Utah Jazz, was a consensus AllAmerica point guard at Stanford (1994-97).

THE STORYLINE

Senior Jermaine Dixon is Pitt’s lone returning senior starter from the 2008-09 team. The lefthander proved to be a mentally and physically tough competitor, quick slasher and efficient shooter last year as a junior. Dixon is a natural scorer who can penetrate and attack the basket. He uses his quickness to create shots on the offensive end. He also emerged as Pitt’s lock-down perimeter defender as his assignment often included guarding the opponent’s best perimeter player. Last year, Dixon emerged as Levance Fields’ backcourt counterpart after transferring to Pitt following two seasons at Tallahassee Junior College. This season, Dixon’s experience and leadership will prove valuable to the Panthers.

Sophomores Ashton Gibbs and Nasir Robinson both return for their second season at Pitt after enjoying a productive 2008-09 season. A versatile, smooth shooting and reliable ballhandler, Gibbs contributed at both guard positions. He led the Big East in 3-point percentage (.439) and averaged 4.3 points in 35 games played on the year. In addition, Gibbs spent his summer with the USA Basketball Under-19 team that captured the Gold Medal at the FIBA World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand. Over Team USA’s nine-game schedule, Gibbs averaged 9.8 points and led the Americans in minutes (202) and minutes played per game (22.4). He also made six starts, hit 12 3-pointers and hit 82.4 percent (14-17) of his free throw attempts. A hard-nosed and fierce competitor, Robinson contributed primarily at both forward positions off the bench for Pitt in 2008-09. He saw action in 29 games, pulled down 35 rebounds and scored 34 points in 186 minutes. Look for Robinson to make a significant impact in the new year.

Pitt enjoyed one of its most successful seasons in school history in 2008-09 as it advanced to the NCAA East Regional Final, ascended to the nation’s No. 1 ranking for the first time in school history, earned its first-ever No. 1 seed and finished with a school record tying 31-5 record. Pitt also became the only Big East program to advance to the NCAA Tournament for an eighth straight season, win at least 20 overall games (31-5) and 10 league games (15-3) in each of the last eight seasons. Tyrell Biggs, Sean Brown, Levance Fields and Sam Young comprised Pitt’s all-time winningest class as the foursome finished with a four-year 112-31 overall record. The foursome guided Pitt to an undefeated 19-0 record at the Petersen Events Center and said farewell to Pitt fans with a 70-60 win over No. 1 ranked Connecticut on Senior Day. Pitt earned the school’s first-ever No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament on Selection Sunday, March 15, 2009. Pitt spent three weeks during the 2008-09 season as the nation’s No. 1 ranked team. The achievement marked the first-ever No. 1 ranking in Pitt Basketball history. Pitt retired current assistant coach Brandin Knight’s jersey No. 20 in a ceremony prior to the Marquette game on March 4, 2009. DeJuan Blair was named the Big East’s co-Most Valuable Player prior to the Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden. Pittsburgh native DeJuan Blair earned consensus All-America First Team honors after a superb 2008-09 season which saw him average 15.7 points and 12.3 rebounds per game.

2008-09 REVIEW

SEASON IN REVIEW Pitt finishes 31-5, advances to the NCAA Regional Final, earns the first No. 1 ranking and first No. 1 NCAA Tournament seed in school history

112

From the season opener’s tipoff to its heartbreaking loss in the NCAA Regional Final, the 2008-09 Pitt men’s basketball season marked a year of incredible achievement. Along the way, Pitt enjoyed several firsts. It advanced to the NCAA Regional Final and Elite Eight for the first time since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64-teams. Pitt earned the program’s first-ever No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament. The Panthers also ascended to the nation’s consensus No. 1 national ranking for the first time in school history and held the top spot for three weeks during the season (Jan. 5, Jan. 12 and Feb. 23). Pitt also defeated the nation’s No. 1 ranked team for the first time in school history (76-68 win at Connecticut on Feb. 16), then became just the ninth team in NCAA history to defeat a No. 1 ranked team two different times in the same year with a 70-60 home win over Connecticut on March 7. In addition, Pitt also set school records for most victories in a season (31-5 record), most Big East regular season wins (15-3), most home wins (19) and total home attendance (212,682 in 19 games). The Panthers also completed their home schedule with an undefeated 19-0 record at the Petersen Events Center, the program’s fourth undefeated home slate in school history. Seniors Tyrell Biggs, Levance Fields and Sam Young set a school

record for most victories over a fouryear period with a 112-31 record. The 2009 Naismith National Coach of the Year, Pitt Head Coach Jamie Dixon set an NCAA Division I college basketball record for most victories over the first six years of a coaching career with his 163-45 record. He surpassed the previous record of 161 wins held by North Carolina State’s Everett Case from 1947-52. Individually, several Panthers achieved on a national scale. Sophomore center DeJuan Blair became the first player at Pitt to earn First Team All-America honors from the Associated Press since Don Hennon achieved that honor in 1957-58. The Big East’s co-Player of the Year, Blair earned consensus First Team AllAmerica honors from every granting organization and finished among the nation’s top-3 for the National Player of the Year awards. He also was named the Big East’s co-Most Valuable Player and consensus All-Region. Blair thrilled Panthers fans with two 20-20 performances against both Notre Dame and Connecticut, led the nation in offensive rebounding and averaged 15.7 points and 12.3 rebounds per game. Senior forward Sam Young, who became just the fourth player in school history to earn All-Big East First Team honors in two seasons, earned several All-America honors, set his own single

DeJuan Blair earned consensus First Team All-America honors in 2008-09. He entered the 2009 NBA Draft and is now a member of the San Antonio Spurs.

Senior Mike Cook hoists the Big East Tournament championship trophy after the Panthers became just the second team in league history to win the tourney with four straight wins. Cook went down with a season-ending knee injury on Dec. 20 vs. Duke, but still remained a key part of the team. Cook applied for a sixth year of eligibility but was denied by the NCAA in August.

No. 20 Louisville with a perfect 16-0 record. Blair and Young powered Pitt past Syracuse with dual 20-point performances in an 18-point victory. Young then followed with a 22-point game, leading Pitt to a 79-67 win at West Virginia. Pitt played Villanova in the final basketball game at the historic Philadelphia Spectrum. A seven-game win streak vaulted Pitt back into the nation’s No. 1 ranking. It first defeated Notre Dame, 93-80, behind a 23-point, 22-rebound performance by Blair, notched a non-conference win over Robert Morris, then registered a 28point win at DePaul which saw Blair score 32 points and Fields match the school’s game assists record with 16. Pitt then claimed home wins over West Virginia and Cincinnati respectively. In a sparkling 76-68 win at Connecticut, Young led all scorers with 25 points, but it was Blair who captured the nation’s attention with his second 20-20 performance of the year (22 points/23 rebounds) and inadvertent flip of UConn’s Hasheem Thabeet. Pitt found itself back atop the rankings at No. 1 but the Panthers dropped an improbable loss at Providence. The Marquette win was especially special as Pitt found itself trailing by nine points midway through the second half, but stormed back with a 21-2 run to claim the win. Prior to the Marquette game, Pitt retired the jersey of assistant coach and former All-American Brandin Knight. In a much-anticipated rematch on senior day for Young, Fields and

Levance Fields set season records for total assists and assist:turnover ratio. He also tied the record for assists in a game (16 vs. DePaul).

Biggs, Pitt sent the record-setting, energized crowd of 12,908 home with a spectacular 70-60 win. Young provided the spark as he scored 31 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in a memorable performance. Fields, who suffered an injury during the Marquette game, played the entire contest and scored 10 points and dished out 12 assists. Pitt earned its first-ever No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament. The Panthers were also named the nation’s No. 2 seed behind Big East champion Louisville and concluded the year with a No. 2 ranking in the Ratings Percentage Index. First and second round wins in Dayton, Ohio over East Tennessee State and a red-hot Oklahoma State team vaulted Pitt into its fifth NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearance in the last eight seasons. Pitt traveled to Boston where it would meet Xavier in NCAA Regional action. A hard-fought, physical game against the Musketeers came down to the contest’s last minute as Fields hit a go-ahead 3-pointer to give Pitt the lead, then made a steal and converted a layup with 24 seconds left to secure the win. Pitt advanced to the NCAA Regional Final for the first time since the tournament expanded to 64 teams. Its opponent was Big East rival Villanova. In a dramatic game that could have ended either way and typical of the league’s physical play, the contest came down to the final play as the Wildcats’ Scottie Reynolds drove a half-length of the floor and hit a buzzer-beating layup to defeat the Panthers.

An NBA veteran, Lane is shown here throwing down his backboard shattering dunk against Providence on Jan. 25, 1988. “Send it in Jerome!” proclaimed ESPN broadcaster Bill Raftery minutes after Lane’s thunderous dunk prompted a 30-minute delay in the game. Pitt went on to claim a 90-56 victory, then went on to capture the 1987-88 Big East regular season title. The game is forever labeled as the “Night the House Came Down.”
