SEASON PREVIEW

SEASON PREVIEW Three starters and a host of newcomers will anchor a Pitt program that has advanced to the NCAA Tournament 11 times in the previous 12 seasons The 2013-14 campaign marks Pitt Basketball’s inaugural season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Last year, the Panthers returned to national prominence with a 24-9 overall record, fourth place Big East finish at 12-6, 11th NCAA Tournament appearance in the last 12 seasons and a 16-3 record at the Petersen Events Center. In the upcoming season, the Panthers will field a formidable team in the ACC thanks to the return of several key players and a strong incoming class of recruits. Pitt coach Jamie Dixon will need to blend five key returnees with a talented group of newcomers. Even after losing five of its top 10 players, including leading scorer Tray Woodall and freshman center Steven Adams, who was selected with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the Panthers return a strong, talented, experienced and competitive squad led by

the starting trio of Lamar Patterson, James Robinson and Talib Zanna. The three returning starters combined to start 99 games for the Panthers and scored close to 40 percent of the team’s points. In addition, Cameron Wright and Durand Johnson, two of Pitt’s top reserves, return to the mix, along with redshirt freshman Chris Jones. Overall, Pitt returns 49 percent of its scoring, 51 percent of its rebounding and 52 percent of its assists as it looks to excel in its first season in the ACC. To help further the Panthers’ chances for the upcoming season, Dixon and his staff have added three talented freshmen in Jamel Artis, Josh Newkirk and Michael Young. Pitt also brought in two experienced post players who will be eligible to compete immediately in Rutgers transfer Derrick Randall and junior college transfer Joseph Uchebo. The following is a position-

PITT’S PRESEASON STORYLINES  Pitt Basketball enters its inaugural season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Pitt’s schedule will feature ACC home games against Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Maryland, North Carolina State, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.  Pitt begins its quest for a 12th NCAA Tournament appearance in the last 13 seasons and its 13th straight season with 20 or more victories.  Pitt returns three starters, two of its top three scorers, five of its top 10 letterwinners, 49 percent of its overall scoring, 51 percent of its rebounding and 51 percent of its minutes played.  Pitt ranks among the nation’s top-5 programs in winning percentage (.769, 319-96) over the last 12 years. During that span, Pitt has made one NCAA Elite Eight appearance and five Sweet Sixteen appearances, captured six Big East titles and has advanced to 11 of the last 12 NCAA Tournaments. Combining the last 12 years, Pitt also owns the ACC’s second-best league regular season record (141-63) and conference winning percentage (.691) when comparing conference teams.  Jamie Dixon enters his 11th season as Pitt’s head coach with a 262-86 overall record. His 262 victories rank as the fourth highest win total in NCAA Division I history after the first 10 seasons as a head coach. A four-time national coach of the year recipient, Dixon is the first coach in school history to guide Pitt to eight straight NCAA Tournaments, 10 consecutive 20-win seasons and nine 10-plus win years in Big East play. He also currently ranks as the winningest coach in Big East Conference history (league games only) and is among the nation’s top-7 winningest active coaches by percentage.  Jamie Dixon enters ACC play with a combined 27-10 overall record against other ACC programs.  Pitt will travel to New York City on two different occasions and entertain a difficult slate of non-conference opponents in 2012-13. Opponents highlighting Pitt’s non-conference schedule include a Jimmy V Classic game against Cincinnati at Madison Square Garden (Dec. 17), a Big Ten/ ACC Challenge matchup against Penn State at the Petersen Events Center (Dec. 3) and two Legends Classic games at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. against Texas Tech and either Stanford or Houston. Pitt also plays Duquesne in the annual City Game at Consol Energy Center on Nov. 30.  All 31 Pitt Basketball games will be televised in 2013-14. Pitt is slated to play 17 games on national television in 2013-14. Overall, Pitt will appear on national or regional television (RSN or ACC Network) 26 times.

Senior Talib Zanna enters his final collegiate season at Pitt. Among Pitt’s frontcourt players, Zanna has the most experience returning after seeing action in 100 career games and making 59 starts. Over the years, Pitt fans have seen flashes of Zanna’s potential. He now has the opportunity to be a leader for the 2013-14 Panthers after averaging 9.6 points and 6.1 rebounds.

by-position look at the 2013-14 Pitt Panthers. FORWARD Pitt returns experienced players at both forward positions including two starters from 2012-13. Lamar Patterson will be counted upon to be one of the major contributors for the Panthers this season. Patterson, who has started 66 consecutive games, averaged a career-high 10.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game last season. He also knocked down 37 3-pointers and set season-bests with 40 steals and a 46.4 percent field goal

12

percentage (115-248) while leading Pitt in scoring and rebounding eight times. With the graduation of leading scorer Tray Woodall, the Panthers will look to the redshirt senior for leadership and to continue his solid all-around production. The other returning starter at forward is senior Talib Zanna. Listed at 6-9, Zanna’s physical presence has allowed him to become a major factor in the post for the Panthers. However, due to the loss of starting center Steven Adams, Zanna will also see action at center in 2013-14.

TOP LEFT: Cameron Wright enters his junior season as a key defensive player at off guard for Pitt in 2013-14. TOP RIGHT: All-around player Lamar Patterson will be counted upon to provide leadership, playmaking and scoring for the Panthers. Last year, Patterson ranked second on the squad in points (10.0 ppg.) and third in rebounding (4.3 rpg.) and assists (94). CENTER: Teamwork has been a staple at Pitt through the years. Last season, Pitt employed a 10-man rotation that saw no player average more than 11.5 points and no player average less than 11.9 minutes played per game. ABOVE: Sophomore Durand Johnson will be counted upon to provide instant offense. Johnson hit 25 3-pointers last season. LEFT: Returnees James Robinson, Talib Zanna and Durand Johnson will be counted upon to lead the Panthers in 2013-14.

2013-14 PITT BASKETBALL

SEASON PREVIEW Redshirt sophomore Durand Johnson adds depth at the small forward position. The sharp shooting Johnson played in 31 games for Pitt last season, averaged 4.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and hit 25 3-pointers in 11.9 minutes played per game. Johnson, who could also see action at off-guard, will be counted on to provide instant offense for the Panthers. Also, competing for minutes at the small forward position will be redshirt freshman Chris Jones. Listed at 6-6 and 213 pounds, Jones can play multiple positions and is best known for his high basketball IQ and defensive versatility. With the trio of Patterson, Johnson and Jones on the roster, the small forward position will be a strength for the Panthers in the coming season. With Zanna moving to center, minutes at the power forward position will be open. Transfer Derrick Randall, a 6-8 power forward, has the most collegiate experience of Pitt’s incoming group, having played two seasons at Rutgers. For the Scarlet Knights, Randall appeared in 57 games and averaged 2.4 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. He was ranked by both Scout.com and ESPN.com as the nation’s No. 26 power forward prospect coming out of high school. Another option at power forward is Duquesne native Michael Young, a 6-8, 245 pound freshman. With strong back to the basket post moves and a solid jumper, Young provides the Panthers with an inside offensive threat. In addition, the freshman is known for his athleticism and rebounding ability, both of which will help provide him with opportunities for the upcoming season. Last year, Young helped guide St. Benedict’s Prep (N.J.) to a NHSI runner-up finish, No. 2

national ranking and 32-2 overall record. Jamel Artis, a freshman, is another Pitt newcomer who will have an opportunity to compete for playing time. Listed at 6-7 and 230 pounds, Artis is a surprisingly versatile player who can play multiple positions for the Panthers. While having the ability to handle the ball on offense, he also has the size and strength to be effective both offensively and defensively in the post. Because of this, he will provide much-needed depth at a variety positions for the Panthers. In addition, junior walk-on Aron Nwankwo will also see minutes at the power forward position for the Panthers.

ABOVE RIGHT CORNER: Lamar Patterson enters the 2013-14 season needing just 206 points to become the 41st player in school history to surpass the 1,000-point milestone for a career. He also has the opportunity to surpass several allaround milestones in Pitt records. ABOVE RIGHT: Sophomore James Robinson became the first player in school history to earn two international gold medals when he helped guide Team USA to the FIBA U19 World Championship title. FAR RIGHT: Cameron Wright offers athleticism, size and defensive ability to the off guard position. Wright averaged 4.3 points and 14.6 minutes in 31 games last season. He will play a central role in the backcourt this year. RIGHT: The strong and physical Talib Zanna will contribute in the low post for the Panthers. A power forward, Zanna started all 33 games last year and averaged 9.6 points and 6.1 rebounds.

CENTER With the loss of 7-foot Steven Adams to the NBA, senior power forward Talib Zanna will spend significant time at the center position in 2013-14. The 6-9 Nigerian native has seen action in 100 career games for the Panthers and last season averaged career bests for points (9.6), rebounds (6.1) and minutes (23.9) per game. Overall, he reached double figure scoring 14 times and grabbed 10 or more rebounds in four contests. In addition, he recorded two doubledoubles on the season including a 14-point, 19-rebound effort in a home win over Villanova. Over his first four seasons, Pitt fans have seen flashes of Zanna’s immense potential. As the Panthers’ veteran post player, Zanna will be counted upon for leadership. Backing up the center position will be fellow Nigerian Joseph Uchebo, a sophomore transfer from Chipola Junior College (Fla.). Prior to suffering a knee injury as a sophomore, Uchebo averaged 12.3 points and 12.3 rebounds per game, and shot 57 percent (110-

Last season, Woodall became only the seventh player in Pitt history to score 1,000 points and register 500 assists in a career. His backcourt partner, point guard James Robinson returns to lead the Panthers backcourt this season. Robinson, who earned a Gold Medal with Team USA at the FIBA U19

World Championship this summer, started 32 games for the Panthers as a freshman in 2012-13. Robinson averaged 6.1 points, 3.5 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game and was named a Big East Rookie of the Week honoree. Robinson also ranked No. 9 nationally, led the Big East in assistto-turnover ratio (2.83) and finished second on the team with 116 assists. Known for solid defense and his ability as a playmaker to make clutch plays, the sophomore will be counted upon to lead the squad from the point guard position. Top reserve Cameron Wright also returns to the backcourt. A redshirt junior, Wright came off the bench for the Panthers in 30 games last year with one start. He averaged

3.9 points and 1.2 rebounds in 14.6 minutes per game. His athleticism and quickness combined with his defensive and scoring abilities will give Wright an opportunity to earn the starting off guard position. The top point guard recruit in North Carolina from the class of 2013, point guard Josh Newkirk brings his well-rounded game to Pitt for the 2013-14 season. Newkirk has the ability to be a scorer and a playmaker due to his quickness and strong feel for the game. Because of his versatility to play both guard positions, look for Newkirk to play valuable minutes as a freshman for the Panthers. In addition, walk-on sophomore Mike Lecak will contribute at both guard positions after redshirting last season.

HEAD COACH

JAMIE DIXON TCU ‘87  11th Year as Head Coach  15th Year at Pitt Toughness. Intelligence. Unselfishness. Consistency. Teamwork. Success. Improvement. These words describe the University of Pittsburgh basketball program led by head coach Jamie Dixon. Using those ideals, Dixon has established and maintained a “Tradition of Excellence” and “Culture of Success” for Pitt Basketball both on and off the floor. On the floor, Pitt has emerged as a national power. The Panthers rank among the nation’s top5 programs in winning percentage over the last 12 years and Pitt has claimed more conference titles (six) than any other school in the previous Big East and third-most among Atlantic Coast programs. Player development is a cornerstone for the program as six players have won the Big East Most Improved Player Award since Dixon’s arrival. Off the floor, Dixon has built a program that its fans can be proud of. Pitt is prominent in the community, donating countless hours of service for the greater good. In the classroom, Pitt has graduated 83.3 percent (35 of its last 42) of its student-athletes and consistently achieves top-10 percent NCAA Academic Performance Rate team scores. Beginning his 15th year at Pitt and 11th as its head coach, Dixon has stockpiled numerous coaching milestones and awards:

 

 Set the all-time NCAA Division I record for most wins after eight seasons as a head coach in 2011 with 216 victories. He also ranks fourth all-time in wins after 10 seasons as a head coach (262

wins), third following nine seasons (238), tied the record for most wins after seven years in 2010 (188) and set the six-year mark in 2009 (163). Earned four college basketball National Coach of the Year honors: 2011 Sporting News, 2010 Jim Phelan Award, 2010 USA Basketball and 2009 Naismith. Guided Pitt to three Big East Championships including two outright Big East regular season titles (2003-04 and 2010-11) and one tournament championship (2008). The recent 2011 outright regular season title came in a league that placed an all-time record 11 teams in the NCAA Tournament. Led Pitt to its first two No. 1 seeds upon entering the NCAA Tournament (2009 and 2011). Became the only coach in NCAA Division I basketball to guide his team to the NCAA Tournament and win at least one game in each tournament over a six-year span (2006-11). Guided Pitt to its first-ever NCAA Regional Final (64-team tournament) 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. 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.

NCAA DIVISION I ALL-TIME BEST COACHING STARTS (10 YRS.) The NCAA Division I all-time wins list after 10 seasons as a head coach: Coach, Team Seasons Roy Williams, Kansas 1989-98 Everett Case, North Carolina State 1947-56 Mark Few, Gonzaga 2000-09 JAMIE DIXON, PITT 2003-13 Thad Matta, Ohio State/Butler/Xavier 2001-10 Denny Crum, Louisville 1972-81 Jerry Tarkanian, Long Beach State/UNLV 1969-78 John Calipari, UMass/Memphis 1989-96/2001-02 Tubby Smith, Tulsa/Georgia/Kentucky 1992-01 Tom Izzo, Michigan State 1996-05 Bruce Weber, Southern Ill./Illinois 1999-08 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 10-year head coaching tenure at Pitt has seen the Panthers compile a remarkable 262-86 record, accumulate a 115-57 Big East regular season record and earn nine NCAA Tournament berths and 10 postseason berths, including three Sweet Sixteen appearances (2004, 2007 and 2009) and one NCAA Regional Final (2009). He set an NCAA Division I all-time record for best start to a coaching career after eight seasons with his 216 victories and his .753 career winning percentage currently stands seventh nationally and the third best among active Atlantic Coast Conference coaches. In addition, his .658 career Big East win percentage currently ranks as the best all-time mark in league play, surpassing such names as Georgetown’s John Thompson, Connecticut’s Jim Calhoun, Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim, Louisville’s Rick Pitino and St. John’s Lou Carnesseca. Dixon’s players at Pitt have excelled as well. Four (Steven Adams, Oklahoma City Thunder; DeJuan Blair, San Antonio Spurs; Aaron Gray, Toronto Raptors; Sam Young, Indiana Pacers) are currently playing in the NBA while five have been selected in the NBA Draft. Four of his players have earned consensus All-America honors, 15 were All-Region honorees, 10 earned major Big East awards including four Most Improved Player honorees, 16 were named All-Big East selections and 13 scored over 1,000 career points.

Over the past 14 seasons, Dixon has been the one constant and essential figure in the Panthers’ dramatic rise to national prominence. The three-year span from 2001-04 produced the winningest period in school history as Pitt won three consecutive Big East regular-season titles, advanced to three straight NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances, captured the program’s first-ever Big East Tournament title in 2003 and compiled one of the nation’s three best winning percentages (.846 with an 88-16 record) from 2001-04 including a 51-2 home record. In addition, the program opened its sparkling, 12,508-seat Petersen Events Center, the nation’s best on-campus basketball venue. Dixon has 22 years of major NCAA Division I coaching experience, including stints at Pitt (14 years), Northern Arizona (four years), Hawaii (three years) and UC-Santa Barbara (one year). Additionally, as an assistant coach, he served under a school’s winningest coach in four different stints (winning percentage). His teams have won a combined 10 conference titles, advanced to the postseason during 17 different seasons and his studentathletes have earned five league player of the year awards. He helped turn destitute programs at Pitt, Hawaii and Northern Arizona into winners and has experienced a high level of accomplishment at several different levels. Facing a major rebuilding project, he joined the Pitt staff in 1999 as associate head coach and recruiting coordinator. In four short years, he helped turn the Pitt basketball program into a consistent national power. In 2000-01, the Panthers surged through the conference tournament, earning a

surprising Big East Championship title game berth while winning five of their last seven contests. It was that year in Madison Square Garden that the college basketball world first took notice of the emerging Pitt program as the Panthers upset nationally ranked Syracuse, Notre Dame and a surging Miami team to earn the school’s firstever championship game berth. That strong finish concluded with a National Invitation Tournament berth, the school’s first postseason appearance in four years. The 2001-02 Pitt team built upon that momentum as it finished 29-6 and surpassed the school record of 25 victories set in 1973-74. Pitt won the Big East West championship, the school’s first league title of any kind since the 1987-88 campaign, and made its first NCAA Tournament appearance in nine seasons (1992-93). The squad also became the first Pitt team to advance to an NCAA Sweet Sixteen since 1973-74 with two NCAA tournament wins over Central Connecticut State and California. With all five starters and nine letterwinners back, the 2002-03 Pitt squad captured the school’s first-ever Big East Tournament championship while making its third straight appearance in the title game. It finished 28-5 on the year and advanced to its second consecutive NCAA Sweet Sixteen. The Panthers also won their second straight Big East West title and co-Big East regularseason title with a second consecutive 13-3 league record. In addition, the Panthers concluded the inaugural season in the Petersen Events Center with a perfect 16-0 home record and ended the season on a 22-game home win streak. Prior to Pittsburgh, Dixon served as an assistant coach at the University of Hawaii under legendary head coach Riley Wallace for the 1998-99 season and previously was an assistant under Ben Howland at Northern Arizona University (1994-98). He also coached as an assistant with Howland at the University of California-Santa Barbara (1991-92) under Jerry Pimm before moving on to the University of Hawaii for two seasons (1992-94). While at Northern Arizona, Dixon helped lead the Lumberjacks to a 42-

FAST FACTS ABOUT JAMIE DIXON  Sister is the late Maggie Dixon, who served as the head women’s basketball coach at the United States Military Academy (2005-06) and as an assistant coach at DePaul. In 2006, Jamie and Maggie became the first brother-sister duo in NCAA Division I history to guide their teams to the NCAA Tournament in the same season. A week later after the Final Four, Maggie tragically died of a heart arrhythmia. A vibrant, passionate and successful coach, Maggie was only 28 years old. In Maggie’s honor, the Maggie Dixon Classic is held each year at Madison Square Garden. It has become the nation’s premier women’s college basketball event and held in conjunction with the Maggie Dixon Heart Health Fair. Dixon and his family have created the Maggie Dixon Foundation, a non-profit organization with two goals: to educate youth on heart health awareness and the promotion of women’s college basketball.  Dixon saved two people from a car that flipped several times after veering off and hitting a guardrail on I-279 North. Dixon’s initial thought was that “no one would survive this event.” He was the first person on the scene and cracked the windshield while pulling a female passenger from the wreckage.

When asked about the incident, Dixon simply responded, “I did what anyone else in Pittsburgh would have done given the situation. I just happened to be there.”  Dixon’s grandparents, who emigrated from Ireland, met in Pittsburgh in the 1920s. They met and fell in love in Pittsburgh and lived in the city for five years before moving to New York. As a young boy, Dixon’s grandparents would tell him stories about the Pittsburgh Pirates. Dixon instantly became a Pirates and Roberto Clemente fan as he hung a poster of the All-Star on his wall. He has had several opportunities to throw out the first pitch at Pirates games.  Dixon is still known in New Zealand as one of the best professional players to compete there. He once scored 61 points for a New Zealand traveling all-star team against Sam Houston State. Dixon played professionally for the Hawke’s Bay Hawks and began his coaching career at Te Aute College in 1989.  As a player at TCU, Dixon made a dramatic halfcourt shot at the buzzer to defeat Texas and win the Southwest Conference championship. For years, the clip was used in SWC promotional videos and Dixon remains famous in Fort Worth. The clip can be found

on Youtube along with a post-game interview with Dixon. Dixon’s playing career came to halt while playing professional basketball in Holland. After he collided with an opponent, he nearly died of a ruptured pancreas. He underwent several operations and did not eat for 50 days during a three-month hospital stay. As a youngster growing up in North Hollywood, Dixon had an acting career. He still is a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild. In his early 20s, Dixon was in a Bud Light commercial that featured a woman dunking on him. The commercial was one of the more popular basketball ads of the year and aired on virtually every basketball event. At age 12, Dixon fired a space gun in a commercial for Mattel. At age 10, he was the star of a TV commercial for Rice Krispies, pretending to celebrate a birthday while eating cereal. At age 5, he did a TV commercial for Volvo, sitting in the back seat and smiling while his father played the driver. He was also in a Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial. Father Jim Dixon was an actor and screenwriter who starred in a variety of movies and productions. Sister, Julie is an attorney for Los Angeles County.

2013-14 PITT BASKETBALL

WHAT THEY’VE SAID ABOUT JAMIE DIXON “What a franchise Jamie Dixon has built here in Pittsburgh. He has had all of his success without having the high draft picks. Jamie Dixon’s one problem is that he’s always in a hurry. He’s in a hurry to win 100 games, in a hurry to win 200. Next thing you know, he’ll be at 300!” -Bill Raftery, ESPN in 2011 “One of the things that makes Jamie Dixon such a great coach is that he’s working just as hard and is just as intense with a 17-point lead as he works when he’s down.” -Bob Knight, ESPN in 2011 “Jamie’s teams play every possession with intensity no matter the score. His players are well coached, they know how to play, they are tough, do things the right way, they listen to their coach and they execute the right way.” -Bob Knight, ESPN in 2011 “There is a legacy of success that has been established under Jamie Dixon. Guys like Ashton Gibbs, Gilbert Brown and Gary McGhee, they went hard every day in practice against the likes of Levance Fields, Tyrell Biggs, DeJuan Blair and Sam Young. That gave them confidence going into the new year. The beat just goes on at Pitt.” -Fran Fraschilla, ESPN in Jan., 2010 “I hate to sound like a recruiting advertisement for the guy, but what player wouldn’t want to play for Jamie Dixon?” -Jay Bilas, ESPN in 2008 “Jamie Dixon has established himself as one of the finest collegiate coaches there is in the game today and this summer he proved himself on the international court too. In leading the USA Men’s Under 19 Team to the World Championship, he not only accomplished something that the United States had not done since 1990, but to do so he had to quickly form a team from 12 individual players and earn their respect and confidence. He obviously did so and his team responded by winning it’s nine games in an impressive team manner.” -Jerry Colangelo, Chairman, USA Basketball “Jamie Dixon has done such a fantastic job since taking over the program. They have won more games at Pitt than any Big East school over the last eight years.” -Dan Shulman, ESPN in 2009 “Dixon is revered in Pittsburgh and the Panthers view him as their version of Mike Krzyzewski, a coach who can leave a legacy for years to come.” -Andy Katz, ESPN.com on June 15, 2009

“Nobody has done a better job of establishing a culture that focuses on the team.” -Mike DeCourcy, The Sporting News in 2009 “Jamie Dixon knows what he’s doing. Pitt’s made the NCAA Tournament every year and he’s always able to build and coach teams with the toughness and skills to win in one of the toughest conferences in basketball.” -Brent Jones, USA Today in April 6, 2009 “What a job Jamie Dixon has done with this program.” -Mike Kelley, ESPN “Pitt’s secret is in the details. It’s in the weight room, the practice gym and the hearts that beat inside those chests. Watch Pitt’s players and you see them continue to be aggressive even after they make mistakes. That goes back to Jamie Dixon believing in them and creating an environment in which they come to believe in each other. One thing players know is that the coach won’t punish them for every blunder.” -Joe Starkey, Pittsburgh TribuneReview on January 17, 2010 “Sought after Dixon building a second home in Pittsburgh…Dixon has never not won at least 20 games in a season, never not won at least 10 Big East games in a year, never not made the Field of 65. Career record: 163-45. Career Big East record: 70-30…Pitt has everything he needs.” -Gary Parrish, CBS Sportsline on Aug. 17, 2009 “Pitt wasn’t supposed to be this good this season. Pitt had to replace four starters-including DeJuan Blair and Sam Young, now in the NBA- from last season’s 31-5 team. A down year seemed inevitable. Big East coaches picked Pitt to finish ninth in their preseason poll. But there Pitt is this morning, in third place in the conference. ‘I believe any team can be as good as it desires to be.’ That’s all Dixon knows. It’s how he lives and coaches. It’s the rock-solid foundation up on which Pitt’s great program is built.” -Ron Cook, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on February 23, 2010 “Loyalty at this level, in any sport, is unique. Chasing the big bucks is more the norm, but what has changed over Jamie Dixon’s tenure is how much Pitt has become a destination job. Pitt is arguably one of the premier jobs in the Big East, which makes it one of the top gigs in the country.” -Andy Katz, ESPN.com on May 9, 2008

“Jamie Dixon, you just led your USA Basketball team to the world championship. What are you going to do next? I’m going to Georgia, recruiting!” Dixon takes his best shot at a challenge—any challenge—then moves on to the next. And you wonder why Dixon is one of the top coaches in America? Correct that. One of the top coaches in the world?” -Ron Cook, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, July 15, 2009 “Jamie cares as much or more about people than any coach I’ve ever been around. That’s a unique characteristic, to be that driven and yet care about other people.” -Steve Pederson, Pitt Athletic Director “Jamie is probably the most grounded person I know. And he possibly is the most focused person I know. When he is coaching, he is coaching 100 percent. And when he is with his family, he is doing that 100 percent. He is really able to focus completely on whatever he is doing, and that’s rare.” -Steve Pederson, Pitt Athletic Director “Jamie Dixon is a Helluva Basketball Coach…The way Jamie Dixon handled this team has to be very encouraging to Pitt fans whose entire rotation is in flux heading into next season. The Under-19 World Championships proved that Jamie Dixon can find a way to win with any hand he’s been dealt.” -Paul Sievers, Bleacher Report, July 14, 2009 “I remember Dixon’s response to Mike Cook’s injury against Duke last season at Madison Square Garden. The coach didn’t just monitor the situation, as many would have done, even though it occurred at a crucial point in a huge game. Instead, he raced out and knelt beside Cook, holding Cook’s hand as the player writhed in pain. ‘I’ll never forget that about coach Dixon,’ Cook said later. ‘That meant a lot to me and my family. I remember I looked up and saw him for a second. I saw his face. He really felt for me.’ If this coach can’t be taken at his word, no coach can.” -Joe Starkey, Pittsburgh TribuneReview on Sept. 26, 2008, after Cook tore his ACL in overtime vs. Duke “At Pitt, Dixon made the right choice when he headed into coaching. He has been brilliant since inheriting the Panthers’ job when Ben Howland left to become the leader at UCLA. Pitt realized what a gem they had in front of them. Dixon, in his own style, has created something special with his players.”

-Dick Vitale, ESPN on February 13, 2007 “Not only is Jamie Dixon a great basketball coach, but he’s a class gentleman in every way.” -Dick Groat on January 6, 2008 …Dixon is a humble and reserved person. But he is also a fierce competitor… -John Grupp, Pittsburgh TribuneReview on January 6, 2008 “The Panthers win by doing the little things. They rebound, they play defense, they play together. If they don’t have top-10 talent, they do have top-10 tenacity, top-10 grit, top-10 hustle and a top-10 belief in themselves.” -Josh Herwitt, Fox Sports Net, July 14, 2009 “Dixon’s teams always play hard, always play defense and always play unselfish basketball.” -Ron Cook, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on January 6, 2009 “Dixon does a fantastic job of getting his team to understand the importance of playing as a unit on both ends of the court. They are very unselfish and they share the ball well. It is always tough to beat the Panthers because they have great chemistry, talent and are well-coached.” -Dick Vitale, ESPN on January 6, 2009 “Nobody in his right mind expected this inexperienced, undersized team to start 13-2 and 3-0 in the Big East, including back-to-back wins at Syracuse and Cincinnati. It’s the first week of January, and I’m wondering if it’s already Dixon’s best coaching job.” -Joe Starkey, Pittsburgh TribuneReview on January 8, 2010 “The best coach in the city…That designation falls to Jamie Dixon. What Jamie Dixon does with the talent he has puts him, in my estimation, at the top of the list in Pittsburgh. What sets Dixon apart is that he can win with lesser talent. That is the mark of a great coach. Nobody gets their players to play harder, no one gets a greater commitment to defense and team. He takes the ordinary and makes them excellent...It has to be Dixon because it happens too often. Expect surprises from the Panthers, expect their players to continue to get better and expect Dixon to continue being the best coach in the city.” -Bob Smizik, Pittsburgh PostGazette, Jan. 6, 2010

BARRY ROHRSSEN ASSISTANT COACH St. Francis, N.Y., ‘83  First Season/Eighth Overall at Pitt Regarded as one of the nation’s top recruiters, Barry Rohrssen begins the first season of his second stint as an assistant basketball coach at the University of Pittsburgh. Along with head coach Jamie Dixon, Rohrssen first came to Pitt in 1999. A former Pitt assistant for seven years from 1999-2006, Rohrssen played a vital role in Pitt’s dramatic rise to prominence. During a five-year period, he helped guide Pitt to a 13333 overall record (.801 winning percentage), a 59-21 Big East regular season record (.738 winning percentage), four Big East Championships (three regular season), three NCAA Sweet Sixteen berths and five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. In addition, Pitt won its first-ever Big East Tournament title in 2003. At Pitt, he served in three different capacities including the associate head coach under Dixon from 2004-06, assistant coach (200104) and director of operations (19992001). As a recruiter, he helped the Panthers establish a pipeline from New York City to Pittsburgh. “We are extremely excited to bring Barry back to Pitt,” Dixon said. “From the start, Barry played an integral role in the success and building of our program. He has a great coaching background, is a good recruiter and has an exceptional understanding of how we operate our program.”

Rohrssen has over 18 years of major college coaching experience. He became the 22nd head coach at Manhattan College on April 25, 2006, a position he held for five seasons from 2006-11. His best season came in 2008-09 when he guided the Jaspers to a 16-14 overall record and fourthplace finish in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference with a 9-9 league slate. Many of the players he recruited earned a postseason berth and won 21 games in 2011-12. Rohrssen improved academic progress ratings at Manhattan as he graduated every player that stayed for four years and dramatically improved the school’s basketball APR scores. Rohrssen worked the 2012-13 season in the Portland Trailblazers organization as an assistant with the NBADL’s Idaho Stampede. “It’s extremely exciting to be returning to Pitt,” Rohrssen said. “We obviously want to continue and build upon the great tradition that has been established. The program’s success speaks for itself. It’s been an honor and I’m proud of my association with the University of Pittsburgh. I love the city of Pittsburgh and feel that it’s home. It’s a great place to be.” Prior to his first stint at Pitt, Rohrssen served as the school’s director of operations at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas from 1995-99 under head coach Bill Bayno. While at

UNLV, the program experienced a resurgence as the Runnin’ Rebels captured the 1998 Western Athletic Conference Tournament championship and advanced to postseason play in three of his four years. Rohrssen’s duties included serving as a liaison to the athletic administration and other school officials, coordination of student-athletes’ game, practice and daily schedules as well as serving as UNLV’s director of summer basketball camps. He also worked as an assistant coach at his alma mater, St. Francis, N.Y. from 1993-95. He was responsible for organizing the film exchange program to scout upcoming opponents, overseeing the strength and conditioning program and monitoring the student-athletes’ academic performance. The Brooklyn, N.Y. native played for the Terriers from 1981-83 and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in business management in 1983. Rohrssen also has extensive international coaching experience. In both 1991 and 1992, Rohrssen represented the United States at the World International Championships in both Poland and England, respectively.

He also co-coached an American AllStar team in 1998 that finished 5-0 in Tahiti. In 2000, he also served as an assistant coach with a USA Junior Team that competed at an international tournament in Leon, Spain. The squad included former Pitt players Julius Page and Mark McCarroll. Later that summer, Rohrssen helped lead a New York City squad that included McCarroll and former Panther Ricardo Greer to a gold medal title at the 2000 Empire State Games. Rohrssen has supported a variety of charitable efforts, including the V Foundation for cancer research. During the summer of 2008, he traveled to Iraq and Kuwait with a select group of NCAA basketball coaches to visit American troops as part of a goodwill program “Operation Hardwood V,” sponsored by the USO and Armed Forces Entertainment. In 2009, was asked to take part in “Operation Hoop Talk” in Afghanistan. Both tours began with visits in the nation’s capital to meet with wounded soldiers. He played in the Catholic High School Athletic Association at Xavieran High School in Brooklyn and is a member of the school’s Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame.

BRANDIN KNIGHT ASSISTANT COACH Pittsburgh ‘05  Eighth Season at Pitt Former University of Pittsburgh star and retired No. 20 jersey honoree Brandin Knight begins his sixth year as an assistant basketball coach at Pitt. In his eighth total season on Pitt Head Coach Jamie Dixon’s staff, Knight is responsible for recruiting studentathletes, 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 an exceptional leader and a coach on the floor. Through the years, he has developed into an outstanding basketball coach. He has been a terrific role model for our players and 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 2004-05. 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. During that span, Knight got involved with coaching. He coached several AAU teams, including a squad that captured the Under-16 Pittsburgh Jamfest title in 2006. Knight joined Dixon’s staff in 200607 as its Program Assistant/Video Coordinator and served the 2007-08 season as Director of Men’s Basketball Operations. A Pitt point guard from 1999-2003, Knight’s leadership was largely responsible for Pitt’s basketball renaissance. The transformation of Pitt’s basketball program into a national power can be attributed largely to 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 regular season title, national top10 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 regular

season 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 firstever Big East Tournament title (2003), three consecutive appearances in the Big East Tournament final (2001, 2002, and 2003) and an 89-40 (.690) fouryear record. A 2003 Wooden All-America team selection, 2002 Associated Press AllAmerica 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 2001-02. Knight still holds school records for career assists (785), career assist average (6.2 apg.), career steals (298), career 3-point field goal attempts (261), season minutes played (1,284 in 2001-02) and consecutive games played with at least one assist (91 from 2000-03).

Knight’s No. 20 jersey was retired in a ceremony prior to the Panthers’ Marquette game on March 4, 2009. Knight, who graduated with a History degree from Pitt in June, 2005, is a native of East Orange, N.J. His brother, Brevin, is a 12-year NBA veteran who was a consensus AllAmerica point guard at Stanford (1994-97). The Knight brothers represent one of only eight brother combinations in NCAA Division I basketball history to earn All-America honors, a distinguished list that includes Marv and Vern Huffman, Eddie and Johnny O’Brien, Dick and Tom Van Arsdale, Mike and Willie Sojourner, Albert and Bernard King, Jim and John Paxson and Harvey and Horace Grant. His father Melvin is a former Seton Hall assistant basketball coach (1978-82) and player (1968-71) who currently serves as the athletic director at Essex County College in New Jersey. Knight resides in Pittsburgh with his wife, the former Michelle Gonzalez, daughter Kylah (10) and son Brandin (3). The Knight family: son Brandin, Brandin, Michelle and Kylah.

Saunders scored over 1,000 points and grabbed over 1,000 rebounds in his four-year career.

Barton, who completed his undergraduate degree in business at Salem State (Mass.) in 1989, earned a master’s in business administration from Suffolk University (Mass.) in 1991. He put those degrees to work at Notre Dame Prep, where he also served as the school principal and athletic director as well as an English teacher.

BRIAN REGAN ASST. A.D./DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS Saint Vincent ‘88  Seventh Season at Pitt A native of Pittsburgh’s Northside, Brian Regan is in his seventh season as the University of Pittsburgh’s Director of Basketball Operations. Regan’s association with Pitt Basketball goes back more than 30 years when he first attended the “Play Basketball Day Camps,” directed by then Pitt coach Tim Grgurich. As Assistant Athletic Director/ Director of Men’s Basketball Operations, Regan’s various responsibilities include the day-to-day operations of the men’s basketball program, serving as a liaison to athletic department officials and coordinating the student-athletes’ practice, gameday and daily schedules. He also coordinates the program’s summer camp schedule and monitors academic progress. During the summer of 2010, he organized Pitt Basketball’s Summer Tour to Ireland. “We are excited to have Brian as our Director of Operations,” Pitt Head Coach Jamie Dixon said. “Brian has proved to be a valuable part of our program and has played a key role in our success.

In 2001-02, Assumption posted one of its most successful seasons in school history, advancing to the NCAA Division II Tournament Sweet Sixteen, capturing the Northeast-10 regular season championship and compiling a 24-6 record. All of these accomplishments were achieved after the Greyhounds were picked to finish last in the league’s preseason coaches’ poll. Three of Regan’s recruits played key roles in that success, including league defensive player of the year Shahar Golan, All-America selection and league rookie of the year Brian Robinson and first team all-conference pick Shane O’Donoghue. Regan is no stranger to the Western Pennsylvania coaching ranks, having served assistant coaching stints at Slippery Rock University (1994-99), LaRoche College (1993-94) and Robert Morris University (1990-93). During his tenure at Robert Morris, the Colonials

won the Northeast Conference title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 1992 before dropping their first round matchup to UCLA in Tempe, Ariz. At Robert Morris, Regan oversaw guard play including Northeast Conference Player of the Year and Aliquippa native Myron Walker. Regan began his college coaching career as a graduate assistant coach at Pitt, serving two seasons (1988-90) under Head Coach Paul Evans. He helped guide the Panthers to a 17-13 record and NCAA Tournament berth in 1989. One of six siblings, Regan and his brothers regularly attended the Pitt youth basketball camps. Two of his brothers served as Pitt ballboys and both went on to compete collegiately

at New York University. His father, the late “Baldy” Regan, served as a Pittsburgh city councilman. A 1988 graduate of Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa., Regan earned his undergraduate degree in communications. During his time at Saint Vincent, he worked as a student assistant under legendary coach Bernie Matthews. Regan also attended the Kiski School in Saltsburg, Pa. A member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, Basketball Coaches Association of New York and Western Pennsylvania Coaches Association, he earned the NABC’s 15-year merit award for service. Regan resides in Pittsburgh with his wife Catherine, daughter Sophia and son Brendan.

TALIB ZANNA 6-9  230  Senior*  Forward Kaduna, Nigeria  Bishop McNamara H.S. (Md.)

THE STORYLINE Talib Zanna (pronounced Ta-leeb Zah-nah) enters his fifth and final season at Pitt after seeing action in 100 career games. With an outstanding work ethic and continued improvement, Zanna has emerged as Pitt’s frontcourt leader. Last year, he averaged 9.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per game as Pitt’s starting power forward. Zanna is a strong, physical athlete who combines skill and athleticism to create matchup problems with the opposition. An aggressive, physical rebounder, he possesses a solid mid-range jumper, unique and rare post-up skills and is capable of playing with his back to the basket as well as blocking shots on the defensive end. Pitt fans first saw Zanna’s potential in a game against Maryland when he recorded his first double-double in an inspiring 14-point, 12-rebound performance at Madison Square Garden. Over the course of his career, he has done a terrific job of

maturing his game from primarily being a defensive player and rebounder to developing a flowing offensive game where he can handle the ball on the break and convert pull-up jumpers.

CAMERON WRIGHT 6-4  205  Junior*  Guard Cleveland, Ohio  Benedictine H.S.

THE STORYLINE Cameron Wright enters his fourth and redshirt junior season at Pitt after contributing primarily at the off-guard position last year. A quick and athletic defender with size, Wright is described as a “complete” package who fits

perfectly into Pitt’s style of play. He is physical and competitive, can defend and rebound in traffic, run the floor, has a solid mid-range game and his shot is improving. An athletic wing with height who slashes to the basket for layups on north/south drives, Wright is explosive and aggressive in the open court and attacks the rim with his slashing ability.

He also has a presence on the offensive glass, is agile, has proven to be a tough defender and has good athleticism. Wright plays with energy and urgency on both ends of the floor and will be a capable multiple position defender in Pitt’s defensive system. An excellent student, Wright has been said to work as hard in the classroom as he does on the floor.

JAMEL ARTIS 6-7  230  Freshman  Forward Baltimore, Md.  Notre Dame Prep  Vermont Academy

THE STORYLINE A combination point forward, Jamel Artis (pronounced Ja-Mel) is a tough, versatile perimeter performer, who can play multiple positions on the inside or outside. Artis has also been described as a rugged playmaking big man who can put the ball on the floor or bang down low. His talent is limitless and his best attributes are his basketball IQ, ball handling ability, toughness and his ability to understand the game at a high level. When his motor is running high, he is a good rebounder who can make things happen off the dribble and can compete against bigger and more physical and athletic competition. On the offensive end, Artis can handle the ball, has size and floor vision and attacks the basket. Artis is a real matchup problem on the offensive end of the court because he has the strength to overpower less physically mature wing forwards and the ability to step out and knock down jumpers. For his size, he can also handle the ball, get to the rim and make plays with his passing ability. Defensively, he anticipates passes in the passing lanes and competes hard on both ends of the floor. A fearless rebounder, Artis is a "hard hat and lunch pail" type of player.

JOSH NEWKIRK 6-1  185  Freshman  Guard Raleigh, N.C.  Word of God Academy (N.C.)

THE STORYLINE Josh Newkirk is a quick, strong and athletic player who is explosive going to the rim. Considered by many to be the top point guard in North Carolina in the Class of 2013, he possesses the ability to beat his defender off the dribble and get to the basket and can play both guard positions. Quick and athletic, Newkirk's strengths include his ability to beat his man off the dribble and finish

above the rim, his great feel for the game and easily transitions from a playmaker to a scorer. He owns a presence at his position and has the headstrong game that coaches want out of a playmaker. Newkirk uses his quickness to get into the lane at will with a tremendous crossover dribble. His ball handling and passing are solid, he doesn't try to force things and he can hit the open jumper off the catch or dribble with range to the arc. He is also a good defender who plays with energy,

pressures the ball and anticipates in the passing lanes. Once he limits his turnovers and consistently knocks down jump shots, he can be a an extremely difficult player to guard.

MICHAEL YOUNG 6-8  245  Freshman  Forward Duquesne, Pa.  St. Benedict’s Prep (N.J.)

THE STORYLINE A strong, athletic combination forward from nearby Duquesne, Pa., Michael Young is an all-around player who can play in the post, mid-post and/ or perimeter. He is tough, versatile and is a strong rebounder who plays hard with a chip on his shoulder. Young displays major athleticism and is a force

on the backboards. One of the top big men in the Class of 2013, Young recently has improved his offensive game with a soft jump hook with both hands and range on his jumper from out to 16-feet. He can also play multiple positions on the court including small forward and power forward and is willing to do the little things to get the job done. A powerful rebounder, Young has a mixture of presence in the paint

and on the perimeter to be a dangerous power forward. He has an ideal frame for a power forward and tremendous skill level for his size which gives him the ability to be versatile and play different positions. He brings leadership and experience to Pitt. He is a matchup problem. If the opponents put a big man on him, he will step out and play the wing position and if they put a guard on him, he will slide to the post. Young has

expanded his game to the point where he is capable of stepping out and knocking down shots and handling the ball.

SEASON IN REVIEW

SEASON IN REVIEW Pitt earns 11th NCAA Tournament appearance in the last 12 seasons; records 24-9 record, finishes in fourth place in final Big East Conference campaign In its final season as a member of the Big East Conference, the 201213 Pitt men’s basketball team regained its place near the top of the league standings and earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament for the 11th time in the last 12 seasons. Although the Panthers’ postseason hopes ended with losses to Syracuse in its final Big East Championship and Wichita State in the NCAA Tournament, the 2012-13 campaign was a success for head coach Jamie Dixon’s squad. After missing the previous season’s NCAA Tournament for the first time in 11 years, Pitt finished with an impressive 24-9 overall record and a 12-6 Big East mark, good enough for fourth place in the conference. Pitt entered the year picked to finish sixth in the league by the coaches in their preseason poll. The 24 total victories ensured that the Panthers recorded a 20win season for a school record 12th consecutive year. Throughout the season, Dixon utilized his team’s strengths— depth, defense, rebounding and ball handling—to overcome opponents. Pitt boasted one of the deepest rosters in college basketball, with 10 different players averaging at least 10 minutes of playing time. With fresh players always on the court, Pitt set a school record for fewest points allowed per game, holding opponents to just 56.0 ppg., which ranked as the country’s No. 8 scoring defense. Pitt also recorded the Big East’s best rebounding margin (plus-6.7 rpg), and the Panthers took care of the ball, finishing No. 3 in the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.48).

Individually, Tray Woodall’s recovery from an injury-plagued 2011-12 season coincided with the Panthers’ improvement. The senior guard started all 33 games and led the team in scoring (11.5 ppg.), assists (5.1 apg.), minutes played (28.6 mpg.) and steals (41). His accomplishments earned him AllBig East Third Team honors and a place on the Bob Cousy Award Watch List. Woodall was far from the only Panther to make significant contributions. Lamar Patterson once again provided a solid all-around game, averaging 10.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Fellow redshirt junior forward Talib Zanna finished third on the team in scoring (9.6 ppg.) and second in rebounding (6.1 rpg.). Joining the experienced trio of Woodall, Patterson and Zanna in the starting lineup for most of the campaign were freshmen Steven Adams and James Robinson. Adams, a 7-foot center from New Zealand, earned a place on the Big East All-Rookie Team while leading Pitt in rebounding (6.3 rpg.) and contributing 7.2 points per game. After one season, Adams declared for the NBA Draft and earned an NBA Lottery pick when he was selected No. 12 by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Meanwhile, Robinson established himself as a backcourt playmaker, tallying 6.1 points and dishing out 3.5 assists per contest in 32 starts. His tremendous 2.83 assist-to-turnover ratio ranked No. 9 in NCAA Division I basketball. Coming off the bench, J.J. Moore and Durand Johnson provided Pitt with legitimate scoring threats. The athletic Moore averaged 8.0 points

Tray Woodall moved over to the off guard position in 2012-13. He led the Panthers in a variety of statistical categories including scoring (11.5 ppg.), assists (167), 3-point FG made (55) and steals (41).

coach Jamie Dixon, who dressed up as the Jackie Moon character in the movie SemiPro.  In a game where all 10 Panthers scored, Pitt displayed its depth and recorded another signature victory over No. 6 Syracuse, 6555, on Feb. 2. The win improved Pitt to 13-1 all time against Top 10 teams at the PEC and catapulted the Panthers into the top 25, a place where they would remain for the rest of the year.  After dropping its first two conference games, Pitt sent a message to the rest of the Big East by defeating eventual regular season champion Georgetown, 73-45, at the Verizon Center on Jan. 8. The 28-point margin marked the Panthers’ largest ever victory over a ranked foe and handed the Hoyas their worst home defeat in nearly four decades.  In one of the most dramatic comebacks in school history, Pitt overcame an 18-point second half deficit to deny Oakland a non-conference upset at the Petersen Events Center on Nov. 17. The 72-62 overtime victory improved the Panthers record to 4-0 at the time.  Dixon exited the Big East Conference as the winningest coach in league history with a final .658 winning percentage in conference games (127-66).  Pitt was the only team in the country to play each of the eventual 2013 Final Four teams: Michigan, Louisville, Syracuse and Wichita State.  Pitt’s senior class consisted of Tray Woodall and Dante Taylor. In an emotional twist of fate, Woodall passed to Taylor for an emphatic dunk in the final seconds of a memorable 73-64 overtime win over Villanova on Senior Day. The duo finished their Panther careers with a 99-41 record.

Charley Hyatt

Built around the nation’s top 1-2 scoring punch in All-American Charley Hyatt and Stanley Wrobleski, the 1927-28 Panthers finished undefeated at 21-0 en route to the Helms Foundation national championship. Hyatt and accurate shooting guard Wrobleski led a Panthers offense that scored a then-phenomenal 38 points per game, center Jerry Wunderlich was a smooth, invaluable player, All-American captain Sykes Reed always outscored his man with his speed and head coach H.C. Carlson’s Panthers took advantage of good depth.

Lester Cohen

Charley Hyatt’s senior season was one for the record books as the threetime All-American led Pitt to its second national title in three seasons. Hyatt (12.6 ppg/314 points) was described as the “surest shot that has ever stepped into the Stadium at Pitt,” and the “greatest” forward in America. He concluded his career averaging an amazing 13.1 points per game and twice led the nation in scoring. Others playing key roles on the squad included Paul Zehfuss, a tiny guard who gained fame through his speed, Lester Cohen, described as Pitt’s all-time best center, and guard Edward Baker, who also quarterbacked the Panthers football team.

In the game against Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish led Pitt until the final seconds. With the score tied at 22-22, Charley Hyatt took a pass from Paul Zehfuss and laid it through the hoop from under the basket. The shot gave Pitt the lead for the first time as the gun sounded.

The 1987-88 Pitt Panthers

In his first season as Pitt’s head coach, Paul Evans turned the Panthers program around faster than anyone in Big East history. Evans transformed a squad that finished 15-14 in 1985-86 and guided it to a co-Big East regular season title and 25-8 record. Combining the leadership of point guard Curtis Aiken, the emergence of NCAA rebounding champion Jerome Lane, the smooth, silky scoring of Charles Smith along with an outstanding cast of talented supporting players in Demetreus Gore, Mike Goodson and Rod Brookin, Evans’ charges guided Pitt basketball into the spotlight.

Led by the All-America and NBA First Round Draft pick duo of Charles Smith and Jerome Lane and supported by one of the top freshman classes assembled in NCAA history, the Panthers captured sole possession of the Big East regular season title. Along with the 1-2 punch inside game of Smith and Lane, other players including Jason Matthews, Demetreus Gore, Sean Miller, Bobby Martin, Nate Bailey, Pat Cavanaugh and Darelle Porter made significant contributions. The 1987-88 Big East championship established Pitt and proved its potential as a basketball program.

The 2001-02 Pitt Panthers

The 2002-03 Pitt Panthers

After league coaches picked the Panthers to finish sixth in the Big East’s West Division, the 2001-02 Panthers proved the critics wrong and surprised the nation as they won the Big East-West championship and finished 29-6. The team put Pitt Basketball back on the national scene as the squad relied on team chemistry and defensive strength. Guard Brandin Knight provided important leadership, led the team in both points (15.6 ppg) and assists (7.2 apg) and played a role in 47.9 percent of the team’s field goals. Fans enjoyed Julius Page’s athleticism, Jaron Brown’s determination and rebounding, Ontario Lett’s scoring presence, Donatas Zavackas’ outside shooting along with a late season emergence from freshman Chevon Troutman.

After a highly successful 2001-02 campaign, the national spotlight was focused on the Panthers to continue that success. And the veteran 2002-03 Pitt team didn’t disappoint. Scoring balance and team defense were strengths as six Panthers concluded the year scoring at least 9.0 points per game while Pitt held its opponents to a school-record 59.2 average.

The 2003-04 Pitt Panthers

The 2007-08 Pitt Panthers

With a new head coach and the departure of three starters comprising 40 percent of the 2002-03 season’s offense, Pitt fans hoped for the best in 2003-04. But the emergence of Big East Coach of the Year Jamie Dixon, Big East Rookie of the Year Chris Taft and Big East Most Improved Player Carl Krauser set Pitt on a course of good fortune as it opened with 18 straight wins en route to a 31-5 record, third straight Big East regular season title and third consecutive NCAA Tournament “Sweet Sixteen.” Team MVPs Jaron Brown and Julius Page along with Chevon Troutman, Mark McCarroll, Taft and Krauser formed the foundation of the 2003-04 Panthers who won with devastating defense.

Never before had a Pitt basketball team faced more adversity in a season. During the final week of December, two of Pitt’s starters and most experienced players were lost to injuries in back-to-back games: Mike Cook in overtime vs. Duke (torn ACL) and Levance Fields at Dayton (fractured foot). Despite the adversity, coach Jamie Dixon and Pitt never lost sight of its goals. Players stepped into new roles and responded. Fields eventually came back and helped guide the team to the Big East Championship. Others who played key roles were leading scorer Sam Young, freshman AllAmerican DeJuan Blair, seniors Ronald Ramon and Keith Benjamin, along with emerging players Gilbert Brown, Tyrell Biggs and Brad Wanamaker.

 SEASON NOTES Set school record with 31 victories...Won the Big East regular season title outright, Pittsburgh’s third consecutive league regular season crown...

Completed school-record 40-game home win streak (11/23/02-2/29/04) and concluded season with two-year Petersen Events Center record of 35-1...

INTERNATIONAL PANTHERS PITT’S MEDALISTS CHARLES SMITH (1986 and 1988)

SEAN MILLER (1991)

 Gold Medalist- 1986 USA World Championships (Madrid, Spain)

 Gold Medalist- 1991 World University Games (Sheffield, England)

For the first time in 32 years, USA brought home the Gold Medal at the World Championships. Widely considered a darkhorse to win the gold, Team USA finished 9-1 and fended off a late rally to capture an 87-85 championship game decision over the USSR. Pitt’s Charles Smith provided the firepower as he averaged a team-leading 15.0 points, hit 52.7 percent (61-117) of his field goals and pulled down 5.8 rebounds per game. Coached by Lute Olsen, the team also featured 12 future NBA players including David Robinson, Sean Elliott, Steve Kerr, Kenny Smith and Rony Seikaly.

Pitt’s Sean Miller helped lead Team USA to a perfect 6-0 record, a second consecutive gold medal and eighth gold in 12 tries. He ranked second on the squad with six 3-pointers and connected on a perfect 10-10 free throws. Coached by P.J. Carlesimo, Team USA outscored its opponents on average 103.2-63.8.

 Bronze Medalist- 1988 USA Olympic Team (Seoul, Korea) Favored to win the Gold Medal, head coach John Thompson’s United States team lost a semifinal game to the Soviet Union, but rebounded with a 78-49 win over Australia to claim the Bronze Medal. Pitt’s Charles Smith averaged 7.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. It was Smith’s second international competition. USA finished 7-1 in competition.

SAM CLANCY (1979)  Gold Medalist- 1979 Pan American Games (San Juan, Puerto Rico) Led by head coach Bob Knight, the 1979 USA Pan American Games team featured one of the youngest and most explosive squads in American history. The Americans breezed to the Gold Medal contest by winning nine straight games and averaging a record 100.8 points per game. Pitt’s Sam Clancy was a key contributor off the bench on a team featuring NBA All-Stars Isaiah Thomas, Kevin McHale and Ralph Sampson. He averaged 3.6 points (10-18 FG) while pulling down 3.3 rebounds per game.

JEROME LANE (1987)  Silver Medalist- 1987 Pan American Games (Indianapolis, Ind.) Team USA won its first five games by an average margin of 29 points but was denied the gold medal for just the second time in 36 years of the event as Brazil upset the Americans 120-115 in the Championship game. Pitt’s Jerome Lane appeared in six games and averaged 3.5 rebounds per game. Leading scorers included David Robinson, Danny Manning and Rex Chapman.

Jamie Dixon  2009 FIBA World Championships (Auckland, N.Z.) Gold Medalist

JAMIE DIXON AND ASHTON GIBBS (2009)  Gold Medalist- 2009 FIBA World Championships (Auckland, New Zealand) Pitt’s Ashton Gibbs and coach Jamie Dixon led the USA Basketball Under-19 Team to the 2009 FIBA World Championship Gold Medal with a perfect 9-0 record. Dixon assumed head coaching duties just a month before the team was to depart for New Zealand. He inherited an overhauled roster, guided the squad to the title and was named USA Basketball’s “Coach of the Year” for his efforts. The squad’s starting point guard, Gibbs averaged 9.8 points, dished out 20 assists and led the Americans in both minutes played (202) and minutes per game (22.4). He also contributed 12 3-pointers and connected on 82 percent of his free throw attempts. The USA stint proved to be a valuable experience for Gibbs upon entering his sophomore season. In 2011, Gibbs represented Team USA at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China.

JAMES ROBINSON (2012 and 2013)  Gold Medalist- 2012 FIBA Americas Championships (Sao Sebastiao, Brazil)  Gold Medalist- 2013 FIBA World Championships (Prague, Czech Republic) James Robinson became the first player in school history to earn two Gold Medals in international competition in July, 2013 when he played a role on the USA Basketball 2013 Under-19 FIBA World Championship team. USA registered a perfect 9-0 record en route to the championship and defeated Serbia, 82-68, in the title game. In 2012, Robinson also helped lead the USA Basketball Under-18 team to its sixth all-time FIBA Americas Gold Medal. The Americans concluded the event with a perfect 5-0 record and outscored five opponents by an average of 38.6 points per contest. USA defeated host Brazil, 81-56, in the title game. As the team’s point guard, Robinson led Team USA in assist:turnover ratio and averaged 4.4 points per game. Robinson also represented Team USA at the Nike Hoops Summit.
