2012-13 PITT BASKETBALL

SEASON PREVIEW

SEASON PREVIEW Three starters, seven letterwinners return to anchor a Pitt program that has advanced to the NCAA Tournament 10 times in the previous 11 seasons Pitt will enter the 2012-13 season with much promise and with last year’s 22-17 campaign fresh on its mind. For the first time in 10 years, Pitt failed to advance to the NCAA Tournament. Pitt also did not win 10 Big East regular season games for the first time in 10 seasons. With a strong group of returning players, a successful sixgame run in the College Basketball Invitational to close out the year and the addition of a stellar four-player recruiting class, Pitt is ready to get back to meeting its lofty expectations. Despite losing two starters in leading scorer Ashton Gibbs and leading rebounder Nasir Robinson, who combined for 2,710 career points and 195 career starts, Pitt returns three starters and seven of its top-10 in minutes played, 63 percent of its scoring and 72 percent of its rebounding from last year’s team. The team’s top four leading scorers from last year’s six-game College Basketball Invitational all return to the roster including point guard Tray Woodall, small forward Lamar Patterson, power forward Talib Zanna, small forward J.J.

Moore, along with starting center Dante Taylor. In addition, four other players also are back after emerging as key contributors last year: guard Cameron Wright, guard John Johnson, center Malcolm Gilbert and small forward Durand Johnson. Pitt also adds a consensus top-15 ranked recruiting class which includes 7-foot New Zealander Steven Adams, USA Basketball player James Robinson and small forward Chris Jones. Earlier this summer, junior Trey Zeigler was cleared by the NCAA to compete for Pitt immediately following his transfer from Central Michigan. The following is a position-byposition look at the 2012-13 Pitt Panthers. FORWARDS Despite the loss of last season’s leading rebounder Nasir Robinson, the Panthers return three experienced forwards to the roster. Redshirt junior Lamar Patterson averaged 9.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game and finished last season on a high after he was named the College Basketball

PITT’S PRESEASON STORYLINES  Pitt will play its final season in the Big East Conference. Pitt’s schedule will feature home games against Connecticut, Syracuse, Notre Dame and Villanova. The year will also see the final Big East regular season contests against the likes of Georgetown, St. John’s, Providence and Seton Hall. Those series have been intact for the past 30 years.  Pitt begins its quest for an 11th NCAA Tournament appearance in the last 12 seasons and its 12th straight season with 20 or more victories.  Pitt returns three starters, two of its top four scorers, seven of its top nine letterwinners, 63 percent of its scoring, 72 percent of its rebounding and 66 percent of its minutes played.  Pitt also welcomes a consensus top-15 nationally ranked recruiting class which includes Steven Adams, Chris Jones and James Robinson. Junior transfer Trey Zeigler, who scored 1,000 points in two seasons at Central Michigan, was also ruled eligible to compete immediately by the NCAA.  Pitt ranks among the nation’s top-5 programs in winning percentage (.758, 295-94) over the last 11 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 10 of the last 11 NCAA Tournaments. Combining the last 11 years, Pitt also owns a league-best 129-57 Big East regular season record.  Jamie Dixon enters his 10th season as Pitt’s head coach with a 238-77 overall record. His 238 victories rank as the fourth highest win total in NCAA Division I history after the first nine 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, nine consecutive 20-win seasons and eight 10-plus win years in Big East play. He also currently ranks as the winningest coach in Big East history (league games only) and is among the nation’s top-7 winningest active coaches by percentage.  Pitt will potentially play 16 games against opponents that advanced to postseason play in 2011-12, including 14 contests versus teams advancing to the 2012 NCAA Tournament. Opponents highlighting Pitt’s non-conference slate include potential games against 2012 NCAA Tournament participants Lehigh (potentially on Nov. 13) and Detroit (Dec. 1), along with potential games against Kansas State, Michigan and/or Virginia in the NIT Season Tip-Off at Madison Square Garden over Thanksgiving weekend. Pitt also plays Duquesne (Dec. 5) in the annual City Game at Consol Energy Center.

Senior point guard Tray Woodall returns to the squad after playing through an injury last season. Despite missing 11 of a 12 game stretch, Woodall averaged 11.7 points and 6.1 assists per game. He was named the USBWA Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week after averaging 26.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and shooting 62.5 percent from the floor in wins over West Virginia and Villanova.

Invitational Most Valuable Player. An all-around performer who improved significantly over the summer and displayed playmaking abilities, Patterson averaged 13.3 points and 6.0 rebounds per game during the sixgame CBI Tournament. The forward enters his junior season ranked sixth among all-time school career leaders in assist:turnover ratio (1.95). Patterson has the opportunity to continue the same success he experienced during Pitt’s postseason run. Out of Pitt’s three returning forwards, redshirt junior Talib Zanna provides the most size and physicality. Standing six-feet-nine inches tall and weighing 230 pounds, Zanna has proved to be a strong rebounder and a

12

consistent scorer. Like Patterson, Zanna also excelled in the six-game CBI Tournament as he averaged 11.8 points and 7.0 rebounds and shot an astounding 73.7 percent (28-38) from the floor. He concluded the year averaging 6.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game and will be a key player again as Pitt’s power forward in 201213. Junior J.J. Moore is an extremely athletic and gifted wing who saw action in 38 games last season. A penetrator with a scorer’s mentality, Moore possesses the ability to score from inside or on the perimeter. Last year, Moore provided a much-needed scoring punch off the bench, averaging 7.5 points per game and totaling 13

TOP LEFT: Sophomore Cameron Wright will be a key defensive player for Pitt in 2012-13. TOP CENTER: Talib Zanna and Dante Taylor together will give Pitt size and presence in the paint. Pitt’s frontcourt was ranked among the nation’s top groups by Lindy’s Magazine. CENTER: Durand Johnson, Cameron Wright, John Johnson, Talib Zanna and J.J. Moore all will be counted upon to contribute in the coming year. ABOVE: A former McDonald’s All-American, Dante Taylor enters his senior year after seeing action in 104 career games. LEFT: Small forwards Lamar Patterson and J.J. Moore both provide different intangibles. Patterson is one of Pitt’s top passers and playmakers, while Moore offers athleticism and scoring ability. Both will see extensive action this year.

2012-13 PITT BASKETBALL

SEASON PREVIEW double-figure scoring games. In addition, Moore closed out the 201112 campaign on a scoring tear after he reached double figure scoring in nine of his last 13 contests and averaged 11.8 points per game during that stretch. At 6-6, Moore will contribute to the Panthers as either a small forward or shooting guard. Redshirt freshman Durand Johnson was a highly touted recruit who was rated among the top-100 players on several scouting lists. A scorer and shooter with size, Johnson will add depth and superb offensive ability at small forward. He spent the 2011-12 season as a redshirt. Senior Dante Taylor will also see action at power forward along with junior walkon Aron Nwankwo. CENTERS Pitt has not lost any depth at center for the 2012-13 basketball season. Last season Dante Taylor, a former McDonald’s All-American, assumed the starting role at center. An aggressive, experienced and hard-working rebounder and a shot blocker, Taylor led the Panthers with 25 blocks and averaged 5.8 points and 4.9 rebounds per game last season. He also shot a team-best 57.7 percent (86-149) from the floor. Taylor, who ranks among Pitt’s best shot blockers of all-time (67 career blocks) should see plenty of opportunities to contribute as a leader and key post player during his senior season in 2012-13. Pitt’s most highly ranked recruit in school history, seven-foot, 250-pound Steven Adams, has the potential to aid the Panthers on both ends of the floor. A New Zealand native, Adams has immense physical tools including superb athleticism, long arms, a wide wingspan and great hands. Offensively, he is comfortable in the post and has the ability to showcase a variety of shots from an effective jump hook to a face up mid-range jumper. On defense, opponents will be aware of his physicality and ability to block and alter shots. Ranked among the nation’s top10 recruits for the Class of 2012, look for Adams to make an immediate impact in his first year at Pitt. Sophomore Malcolm Gilbert also will provide depth at center. The hard working and blue collar Gilbert quickly

became a fan favorite at the Petersen Events Center during his freshman season when he saw action in 19 games, scored nine points, grabbed 15 rebounds and proved to be an effective defensive post presence. Gilbert’s main contribution last year was on the defensive end where he came off the bench to spark the Panthers. Talib Zanna could also see action at center for the Panthers. GUARDS The shooting and experience of Ashton Gibbs will be missed and will be difficult to replace in 2012-13. A threeyear starter and one of the most prolific shooters and scorers in program history, Gibbs led the 2011-12 Panthers in scoring (14.6 ppg) as well as free throw percentage (85.5), 3-point field goals made (81) and 3-point field goal attempts (235). The three-time All-Big East selection also left his mark on the

ABOVE RIGHT CORNER: Lamar Patterson was named the CBI Most Valuable Player after averaging 13.3 points and 6.0 rebounds during the six-game tournament. ABOVE RIGHT: Sophomore Malcolm Gilbert saw spot action off the bench at center last year. He will contribute as a key defensive replacement. FAR RIGHT: Cameron Wright offers athleticism, size and defensive ability to the off guard position. Wright averaged 11.7 minutes in 37 games and 10 starts last season. UPPER RIGHT: Sophomore John Johnson proved to be a valuable 3-point shooter as he converted 33 threes in 2011-12. RIGHT: The strong and physical Talib Zanna will contribute in the low post for the Panthers. A power forward, Zanna started 13 games last year and has seen action in 67 career contests.

Pitt basketball career record book, establishing new school career records for 3-point field goals made (297) and 3-point field goal attempts. He also concluded his career ranked eighth on Pitt’s all-time career scoring list with 1,748 points. Gibbs also saw spot action at the point guard position. Redshirt senior Tray Woodall returns as the point guard and floor general for the Panthers’ offense. Throughout his career, Woodall has continually been the best ball handler and distributor on the roster. Last season, he led the Panthers in assists (171), contributed a stellar 1.92 assist: turnover ratio, averaged 11.7 points per game and hit 49 3-pointers. Due to a groin/abdominal injury suffered midway through the year, Woodall missed a two-month, 11-of-12-game period in which Pitt went 5-7. When he returned, he put together a memorable four-game stretch that earned him National Player of the Week recognition. Even with his outstanding performances, he never made it back to 100 percent during the year. This season, a healthy Woodall will have one final chance to lead the Panthers back to the NCAA Tournament. With the departure of Gibbs, redshirt sophomore Cameron Wright is in position for a breakout season in 201213. Wright blends athleticism, quickness and competitiveness along

with scoring ability to the off guard position. He started 10 games last season and provides the Panthers with a valuable backcourt defensive specialist. He saw action in 37 games and 434 minutes and averaged 2.2 points and 1.6 rebounds per game. Look for Wright to make a valuable contribution during the upcoming season. Returning for his sophomore campaign, combination guard John Johnson looks to continue his contributions to the Panthers. Offensively, Johnson proved to be a consistent sharpshooter from both 3point range and the free throw line. As a freshman, he hit 33-86 3-pointers and shot 83.3 percent from the line, figures that ranked among the top freshman season totals in school history. Johnson also saw action in each of Pitt’s 39 games during the 2011-12 season.

Junior transfer Trey Zeigler brings a dominating physical presence to the Panthers’ backcourt for the 2012-13 season. In two seasons at Central Michigan, Zeigler averaged 16 points and 6.1 rebounds per game while playing for his father, Ernie Zeigler, a former Pitt assistant. While at CMU, Zeigler became the first player in school history to accumulate 1,000 career points in only two seasons. A smooth, all-around performer, Zeigler was cleared by the NCAA to compete immediately after transferring to Pitt. He will provide scoring, rebounding, ball handling and size to the off guard position. The former runner-up for the Mr. Michigan Basketball award in high school, he has the potential to put up solid numbers while aiding the Panthers this winter. Incoming freshman point guard James Robinson joins the Panthers with plenty of experience while competing at the highest level. This

summer, Robinson was a member of the United States Under-18 Team that captured the Gold Medal at the FIBA Americas Championships in Sao Sebastiao, Brazil in June. A consensus top-60 national recruit out of famed DeMatha Catholic High School, Robinson is a first-class competitor who makes teammates better around him. He has the potential to help the Panthers in 2012-13 with his strong ball handling, leadership and passing skills. Furthermore, Robinson has proved to be a winner as he won more games (120) at DeMatha than any other player in school history. Freshman Chris Jones also brings his multi-dimensional game to Pitt. At 6-5, he brings elite-level size, strength and athleticism to the shooting guard position and can easily make the switch to small forward. Look for Jones to compete for playing time at both of those positions.

HEAD COACH

JAMIE DIXON TCU ‘87  10th Year as Head Coach  14th 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 11 years and Pitt has claimed more conference titles (six) than any other school in the Big East. 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 82 percent (31 of its last 38) of its student-athletes and consistently achieves top-10 percent NCAA Academic Performance Rate team scores. Beginning his 14th year at Pitt and 10th 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 third after nine season as a head coach (238 wins), tied the record

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.

That philosophy has paid off as Pitt consistently ranks among the nation’s top offensive, defensive and rebounding squads. Dixon’s nine-year head coaching tenure at Pitt has seen the Panthers compile a remarkable 238-77 record, accumulate a 103-51 Big East regular season record and earn eight NCAA Tournament berths and nine 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 .783 career winning percentage currently stands fourth nationally and the best among active Big East coaches. In addition, his .651 Big East winning 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 and St. John’s Lou Carnesseca. Dixon’s players at Pitt have excelled as well. Three (DeJuan Blair, San Antonio Spurs; Aaron Gray, Toronto Raptors; Sam Young, Philadelphia 76ers) are currently playing in the NBA while four 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, 15 were named All-Big East selections

and 12 scored over 1,000 career points. Over the past 13 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 21 years of major NCAA Division I coaching experience, including stints at Pitt (13 years), Northern Arizona (four years), Hawaii (three years) and UC-Santa Barbara (one year). Additionally, he has served as an assistant 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 16 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

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).

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.

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

PAT SANDLE ASSISTANT COACH San Francisco State ‘87  10th Season at Pitt Known for his scouting ability, work ethic, defense, intensity and successful guard play, Pat Sandle begins the 10th year of his second stint as an assistant coach at Pitt. Along with head coach Jamie Dixon, Sandle first arrived at the University of Pittsburgh in 1999. Sandle’s primary responsibilities include overseeing post play and scouting opponents. Sandle, who quietly portrays Pitt program trademarks of toughness and selflessness, has played a key role in helping lead Pitt Basketball to national prominence. Since Sandle arrived back at Pitt with Dixon in 2003, the Panthers have compiled a 238-77 record and .756 winning percentage, advanced to three NCAA Sweet Sixteens along with the 2009 NCAA Elite Eight, earned the school’s first-ever No. 1 national ranking (2009) and No. 1 seed upon entering the NCAA Tournament in both 2009 and 2011, claimed two Big East

regular season titles (2003-04 and 2010-11), captured a Big East Tournament title in 2008 and advanced to eight NCAA Tournaments. In addition, four former players including Chris Taft, Aaron Gray, Sam Young and DeJuan Blair moved on to NBA careers. “We’re fortunate to have Pat Sandle at the University of Pittsburgh,” Head Coach Jamie Dixon said. “Pat and I have known each other for a number of years. He is the most honest and unselfish person I know. From the start, he was instrumental in building this program.” Sandle came back to Pitt from UCLA, where he served as an assistant basketball coach from 2001-03. At UCLA, Sandle helped guide the Bruins to an NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearance and 20-plus win season under Steve Lavin in 2001-02. During his tenure, he assisted in the development of NBA

players Dan Gadzuric, Matt Barnes and Jason Kapono. During a five-year coaching tenure with Dixon on Ben Howland’s staffs at both Pitt and Northern Arizona (199699), Sandle was responsible for guard play, scouting, conditioning, player development, on-campus recruiting and academic progress. He also served as director of the school’s summer basketball camps. During Sandle’s 2000-01 season on Pitt’s staff, the Panthers advanced to the National Invitation Tournament, their first postseason appearance in four years. While at Northern Arizona, the Lumberjacks enjoyed their most successful three-year period in school history (63-23, .733), won back-toback Big Sky Conference titles and advanced to the 1997 NIT and 1998 NCAA Tournament. Sandle owns 26 years of coaching experience, including 17 seasons at the NCAA Division I level. He has served NCAA Division I stints at Pitt (19992001 and 2003-current), UCLA (200103), Northern Arizona (1996-99), Fresno State (1991-92) and Saint Mary’s College, Calif. (1990-91). Additionally, Sandle has coached at Sonoma State (1994-96), Santa Barbara City College (1989-90), Skyline

(Calif.) Junior College (1987-88) and Cuesta College (1986-87). He also coached two stints at San Rafael (Calif.) High School in 1988-89 and from 1992-94. A standout at San Francisco State University from 1982-84, Sandle is a member of the school’s athletic hall of fame. A two-time All-California North Conference selection, Sandle is the school’s all-time career assist leader and ranks third in career steals (120). He also held the single-season assists record for seven years with 138 in 1983-84. Sandle was a standout junior college performer at Cuesta College (1980-82), earning All-California and All-North Coast Conference honors. He played his final two seasons at San Francisco State (1982-84), where he earned his undergraduate degree in communications in 1987. Sandle began his basketball career at Los Angeles Crenshaw High School while playing for legendary prep coach Willie West. As a six-foot-one-inch guard, Sandle helped lead Crenshaw to backto-back Los Angeles city championships. Sandle resides in Pittsburgh with his wife Desiree, sons Derek, Kruz, Pierrce and dog Haley.

BRANDIN KNIGHT ASSISTANT COACH Pittsburgh ‘05  Seventh Season at Pitt Former University of Pittsburgh star and retired No. 20 jersey honoree Brandin Knight begins his fifth year as an assistant basketball coach at Pitt. In his seventh 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 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 recent 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 first 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) 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 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 basketball coach and athletic director at Essex County College in New Jersey. Knight resides in Pittsburgh with his wife, the former Michelle Gonzalez, daughter Kylah (9) and son Brandin (2).

He also has extensive recruiting contacts on the East Coast and in the Big East region.” Prior to joining the NCAA Division I coaching ranks, Barton served 10 seasons (1997-2007) as the Head Coach at Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass. Barton built the Notre Dame Prep program into a national powerhouse as he guided the school to back-to-back Prep School National Championships in 2005-06 and 200607, posting a 255-66 overall record and .794 winning percentage.

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 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. He brings with him extensive experience at several different levels. He is also thrilled to be working at Pitt and in his hometown of Pittsburgh.” Regan, who joined the Pitt staff in 2007-08 as its Video Coordinator, has a combined 25 years of college coaching experience.

Prior to his stint at Colgate, Regan served three years (1999-2002) as an associate head coach at Assumption College under Head Coach Tom Ackerman. 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 youth Pitt 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.

THE STORYLINE

CAREER

A true point guard, Tray Woodall returns for his senior year after battling through a severe abdominal injury to start the season’s final 20 games. When he returned after missing an 11 out of 12-game stretch, he put together brilliant back-to-back 20-point games, which earned him National Player of the Week honors. He concluded the year with a stellar six-game CBI stretch that saw him lead the Panthers in both points (13.7 ppg.) and assists (7.0 apg.). As a sophomore, he played major minutes as both a starter and backup off the bench. Woodall is a reliable and intelligent guard who operates Pitt’s offense with ease and efficiency. The quick and multi-talented Woodall is a great passer and scorer who causes matchup problems. He is an experienced big-game player who guards, scores and possesses the ability to emerge as a natural floor leader. Woodall is quick with the ball, athletic and is an effective penetrator. After leading Pitt in assist:turnover ratio in each of the last three seasons, he ranks fourth among all-time school leaders in career assist:turnover ratio. Woodall has also developed a knack for hitting clutch shots, as he has converted several key jumpers in his career. A floor general on offense who begins his fifth collegiate season, Woodall will have the opportunity to have another high impact year for Pitt in 2012-13.

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

THE STORYLINE Cameron Wright enters his third and redshirt sophomore season at Pitt after contributing primarily at the off-guard position last year. A quick and athletic defender with size, Wright is described

MALCOLM GILBERT 6-11  235  Sophomore  Center Smyrna, Del.  The Academy of the New Church (Pa.)

THE STORYLINE Malcolm Gilbert saw action in 19 games last year, primarily as a backup center off the bench. Gilbert is described as a terrific defensive player and tremendous shot blocker who has the rare ability to change a game without scoring. He is a solid low post defender with natural athletic ability and possesses the physical tools needed to play the game at the highest level. He is also improving on the offensive end as he has developed a hook and jump shot. A well-built center with great size, Gilbert owns a huge wingspan, runs the court well, has solid touch around the basket and is aggressive when blocking shots.

STEVEN ADAMS 7-0  250  Freshman  Center

Rotorua, New Zealand  Notre Dame Prep (Mass.)  Scots College Prep

THE STORYLINE An explosive, powerful and versatile athlete at 7-0 tall, Steven Adams is a center whose best attributes include his aggressiveness, non-stop motor, blue collar work ethic and desire to train every day. Adams is fluid and explosive, quick off his feet and is a

big time leaper. He has immense physical tools with long arms and great hands to go along with a huge wingspan. He makes the game look easy from making pinpoint outlet passes to blocking shots. On offense, he has strong low post fundamentals, stellar touch around the basket and displays an effective jump hook. He can stay in the low post and score or

step out, face up from 15 feet and comfortably knock down mid-range jumpers. Defensively, Adams will clearly be a presence in the paint with his physical tools. He plays rugged basketball on both ends of the floor and doesn’t stray from the paint. A strong, physical rebounder who is active on the offensive boards, he is also not afraid to throw his body around in the paint to make his presence felt.

SEASON IN REVIEW

SEASON IN REVIEW Injuries derail Pitt from earning 11th straight NCAA Tournament appearance; Panthers win CBI Championship at season’s end After winning the outright Big East regular season title in 2010-11, the 2011-12 Pitt Basketball team was expected to pick up where it left off and earn an NCAA Tournament bid for the 11th consecutive year. But, injuries and the loss of two starters midway through the season slowed the Panthers. The Panthers’ quest for an 11th straight NCAA Tournament appearance came to a halt after they lost to Georgetown in the Big East Championship Second Round. Though the postseason streak came to a disappointing end, the Panthers still managed a school record 11th straight 20-win season, finishing with a 22-17 record and a successful sixgame College Basketball Invitational stint that saw several of the younger Panthers step into key roles. Those 22 wins rank as the 14th highest total in school history and include five postseason wins en route to the CBI Tournament title. Individually, senior Ashton Gibbs met the challenges that faced the Panthers. The three-time All-Big East honoree led the team in minutes played and nearly all shooting categories. As the team’s leading scorer (14.6 ppg.), Gibbs also led the squad in free throw percentage (85.5), 3-pointers attempted (235) and 3-pointers made (81). Additionally, Gibbs set new individual school records for career 3point field goals (297) and career 3point field goal attempts (725). In 30 of his 37 appearances, Gibbs scored at least 10 points, including 10 20-point performances. The Pitt senior was named a finalist for the Wooden, Naismith and Bob Cousy Award and also earned Lowe’s Senior Class Award All-America Second Team honors. Playing his final season in a Panthers uniform, senior Nasir Robinson continued to improve and impress. A starter in all 39 contests and despite playing with chronic injuries, Robinson

continued to be Pitt’s most effective post presence, accumulating a teamhigh 255 rebounds on the year (6.5 rpg.). Robinson finished as one of three Panthers to average double figure scoring on the year (10.6 ppg.) while totaling four double-doubles. Junior point guard Tray Woodall missed 11 of a 12-game stretch with a groin/abdominal injury but still managed to put together an impressive season. Woodall finished second on the team in scoring (11.7 ppg.) while leading the team in assists (171). He finished the year with five doubledoubles and 15 double figure scoring performances. On Feb. 6, 2012, Woodall was awarded the Big East and the USBWA Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week awards after averaging 26.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. Redshirt sophomore Lamar Patterson concluded a successful season by earning the CBI Tournament Most Valuable Player award. He averaged 13.3 points per game during the six-game tournament and finished the season with a 9.6 average and the second-highest assist total on the squad (133). The emergence of redshirt sophomore Talib Zanna at the end of the season also helped the Panthers’ CBI title quest. In six CBI games, the sophomore Zanna averaged 11.8 points and 7.0 rebounds per game and converted 73.7 percent (28-38) of his field goal attempts. He was also named Best Defensive Player at the team banquet. Junior center Dante Taylor led the team in blocks (25) and made starts in each of the season’s last 11 contests. Sophomore J.J. Moore contributed to the cause with his athleticism and scoring ability, reaching double figures in points in nine of Pitt’s last 13 contests (11.8 ppg. during that span). When Woodall was sidelined with his injury, two players stepped up and

Ashton Gibbs concluded his collegiate career as one of the best shooters ever to compete at Pitt. He set career records for 3-point field goals made (297) and 3-point field goal attempts (725) and also holds a variety of season 3-point and free throw statistical records. Gibbs concluded his four-year career ranked eighth in all-time career scoring with 1,748 points.

Charley Hyatt

Built around the nation’s top 1-2 scoring punch in All-America 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-America 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

All-America Charley Hyatt’s senior season was one for the record books as the three-time 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.

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 2002-03 Panthers did what no Pittsburgh team had ever accomplished in the school’s 21-year Big East history: win the Big East Tournament title. Using suffocating, physical defense and balanced scoring, Pitt won three straight games and defeated Connecticut, 74-56, for the title.

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, Chevon Troutman, Mark McCarroll along with 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...

SEAN MILLER (1991)

For the first time in 32 years, USA brought home the Gold Medal at the World Championships.
