Over the past three seasons, the Pitt women’s basketball team climbed its way into the national scene through the NCAA Tournament. After making its first appearance in school history in 2007, Agnus Berenato has led the team to back-to-back NCAA Sweet 16s. In 2008, the Panthers knocked off No. 3 seed and 12th-ranked Baylor to advance to its first-ever Sweet 16. Last season, Pitt earned its highest seed ever, a No. 4 seed, and advanced to the Sweet 16 round yet again.

There is an unmatched beauty as you cross one of the many Pittsburgh bridges and take a look down one of the three rivers — the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio. The view is awe-inspiring from the heights of Mount Washington or coming out of the Fort Pitt Tunnel.

There is something for everyone in Pittsburgh. For children, there is the Children’s Festival, the Pittsburgh Zoo and Kennywood Park, rated the sixth-best amusement park in the world even in its second century of existence. For anyone looking to mix learning and excitement, there is the Carnegie Science Center and its World War II submarine that patrons can board and view up close. The Three Rivers Arts Festival and Three Rivers Regatta are perennial events that bring thousands of visitors to the city to enjoy cultural activities in Point State Park.

New medical facilities have helped Pittsburgh continue to be on the cutting edge of the health profession. Many of those facilities are housed in Oakland, also the site of the University of Pittsburgh’s main campus. Oakland has emerged as a city of its own with museums and the beautiful Schenley Park. The city of Pittsburgh has provided excitement and thrills for over two centuries, but it has also supplied millions of people with a fabulous place to call home.

performances by world-renowned musicians and lecturers alike. The Carnegie Library has more than six million items and sponsors informative classes on computers and health issues.

I For those who wish to escape the fast pace

Pitt’s main campus sits in the heart of Oakland and attracts a lively and interesting mix of people to the area throughout the day and evening. Its decorative landscape of architectural landmarks, museums and concert halls are juxtaposed with comfortable, friendly neighborhoods, traditional family businesses and national chains, giving the area a small-town feel in the midst of a larger urban scene. I Oakland caters to a variety of interests.

Sitting across the street from the beautiful Cathedral of Learning are the Carnegie

Museums, Library and Music Hall. The Carnegie Museum of Art receives international acclaim for its collection of American and European artwork and the many extraordinary exhibits that are on display every year. The Museum of Art also houses a cinema, bringing in numerous foreign films every month. The Museum of Natural History gives its visitors a chance to interact with the exhibits and is known for its impressive collection of dinosaur fossils. For those searching for entertainment or knowledge, Carnegie Music Hall is home to

of city life but don’t want to venture too far from home, 456-acre Schenley Park sits directly behind the Carnegie facilities. Schenley is the third-largest urban park in the country and offers a skating rink, baseball fields, soccer fields, tennis courts, a golf course and a Frisbee golf course. Walkers and runners are given a beautiful landscape to admire as they exercise at the Schenley Oval or throughout the park. Also inside the park is Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, one of the largest botanical conservatories in the United States. The glass conservatory is home to exotic plants from all over the world, recreating climates and natural surroundings. The conservatory also


houses a spectacular butterfly room, in which hundreds of butterflies fly freely from plant to plant.

I Oakland is home base for the University

of Pittsburgh Medical Center Health System. The system includes UPMC Presbyterian and Montefiore Hospitals, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, UPMC Shadyside, Magee-Women’s Hospital and numerous other medical facilities in Western Pennsylvania. This innovative health system was recently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top medical centers in the country. The University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute’s Hillman Cancer Center in North Oakland has been the headquarters for cancer-based care in Pittsburgh.

I Oakland’s striking architecture is evident

in St. Paul’s Cathedral and Heinz Chapel. The towering structures keep a peaceful, nostalgic sense amid the buzzing urban life. As grand as the buildings are on the outside, the intimate detail used inside to create beautiful places of worship gives Oakland two settings that are among the most ideal to hold a wedding ceremony in Western Pennsylvania.

I One of the greatest moments in the history

of professional baseball occurred in Oakland, where historic Forbes Field stood for over 60 years. Pittsburgh Pirates Hall-of-Famer Bill Mazeroski hit a dramatic game-seven home run to defeat the New York Yankees in the 1960 World Series. Forbes Field was razed at the beginning of the 1970s but the outfield wall where Mazeroski’s home run was hit still stands. Home plate also remains in its original spot and is on display in Pitt’s Posvar Hall.

Oakland provide the public with thriving businesses, satisfying nearly every need and

When you come to Pitt, you travel the world. Over the past few seasons, the Panthers have stamped their passports to Rome, Italy; Athens, Greece and Cancun, Mexico.

While competing in their respective sports, members of the various Pitt teams must also focus on their graduation and preparation for the future. To this end, Academic Support Services is an invaluable resource for the student-athlete community. Academic counselors meet with their student-athletes on a regular basis to provide advising, counseling, tutorial and study skills support as well as career services.

The University of Pittsburgh is one of the most outstanding academic institutions in the country. Pitt’s student-athlete resources give them all the tools to achieve a degree that is respected worldwide.

ATHLETIC TRAINING AND SPORTS MEDICINE

Working with the University of Pittsburgh women’s basketball student-athletes in the area of sports medicine are top athletic trainers and team physicians Dr. Freddie Fu and Dr. Christopher Harner. They provide Pitt women’s basketball athletes the best in sports medicine and health care. PROGRAM AND OBJECTIVES

The primary focus of Athletic Training Services is injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. The sports medicine team utilizes a multidisciplinary approach including athletic training, strength and conditioning, orthopedics, and nutrition, to name a few.

FACILITIES

Student-athletes receive treatment in three athletic training facilities: the Petersen Events Center, Duratz Athletic Complex, and Fitzgerald Field House. Located within the Baierl Basketball Center, the basketball athletic training room is situated adjacent to both the Panthers’ locker room and weight room. The facility features a full-sized whirlpool, X-ray capabilities, physician examination room, therapeutic modalities, rehabilitation equipment and is staffed by professionals who provide health care to student-athletes.

Head coach Agnus Berenato and the Panthers have made a commitment to help the Pittsburgh community and surrounding areas. The team participates in numerous events and functions throughout the year, trying to make a difference not only in Pittsburgh, but the entire nation.

The Panthers have held Women in Sports clinics prior to home basketball games, offering support and instruction to the future women of the sports and professional worlds.

Berenato is a continuing supporter of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation’s Race For The Cure – a charity organization for the prevention and treatment of breast

cancer. The Panthers have followed her lead, getting involved in the foundation and showing their support throughout the season. This year, Pitt hopes to continue to grow its “Pink the Petersen” event, in its third season, which raises awareness for the brave fight against breast cancer. That organization is just one of many that Berenato and the Panthers are involved with. The Panthers have joined forces with former Steelers’ head coach Bill Cowher and his wife Kaye for a basketball clinic for at-risk children at the Family Resources retreat north of Pittsburgh.


Head coach Agnus Berenato’s legend in the city of Pittsburgh is growing. The things she has accomplished on the court in her short time in the Steel City are overshadowed only by her involvement in the community. In the spring of 2008, Berenato was honored as Southwestern Pennsylvania’s 2007 Dapper Dan Sportswoman of the Year for the second time in three years. Berenato joined WNBA star Swin Cash as a two-time award winner of the prestigious award, which recognizes athletic achievement and community service.

Former Pitt All-America guard Shavonte Zellous was honored as the 2008 Dapper Dan Sportswoman of the Year. As a winner of the highest honors in Pittsburgh sports, Zellous joined Steelers’ coach and Dapper Dan Sportsman of the Year, Mike Tomlin.

In the fall of 2007, Berenato joined then-senior Marcedes Walker as honorees for the Women and Girls Foundation as women in the area who have helped to level the playing field and are successful contributors to society. Walker accepted her award from incoming Pitt freshman Shawnice “Pepper” Wilson.

With 30 years under its belt, The BIG EAST Conference continues on a path of success in and out of the athletic arena. The goals have always been the same. The league wants and expects to compete at the highest level and does so with integrity and sportsmanship. The commendable performances of the studentathletes at BIG EAST schools are the indicators of the league’s proud tradition of success. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2009-10 academic year will mark the conference’s fifth straight with the same 16-member group, the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. In 2008-09, BIG EAST student-athletes again succeeded on the national stage. The Connecticut women’s basketball team won its sixth national championship by defeating conference foe Louisville in an all-BIG EAST NCAA title game. The Notre Dame women’s soccer team reached the NCAA championship game and the Syracuse field hockey squad advanced to the NCAA Final Four. Three BIG EAST women’s cross country teams finished in the top 10 at the NCAA Championships. West Virginia was fourth followed by Villanova in sixth place and Georgetown in ninth. Individually in women’s sports, Providence’s Danette Doetzel won the 10,000 meters at the

26

I

2009 -10 Pitt Women’s Basketball

NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Connecticut’s Maya Moore was the conference’s sixth winner of the Wade Trophy as the top player in women’s basketball. Notre Dame’s Kerri Hanks won the Hermann Trophy, the top award in women’s soccer. On the men’s side, Connecticut and Villanova advanced to the Final Four in basketball. The 2008-09 campaign was arguably the best men’s basketball season in the history of the BIG EAST with the league setting NCAA standards with three No. 1 tournament seeds, four teams in the round of the Elite Eight and five in the Sweet 16. The St. John’s men’s soccer team reached the NCAA College Cup before losing in the national semifinals. BIG EAST football has maintained its high profile and its reputation as a balanced group. Seven of the league’s eight squads were nationally ranked or received votes in the national polls in 2008. Cincinnati was the league champion. The BIG EAST, a charter member of the Bowl Championship Series, has won three of its last four BCS bowl games. West Virginia, Louisville and Connecticut also have won or shared league crowns over the past four seasons. The BIG EAST has continued to produce student-athletes who were at the forefront of athletic and academic achievement. In 2008-09,

19 BIG EAST players were chosen to their respective ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Teams, including eight first-team selections. Nearly 400 student-athletes have earned academic all-America honors. The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new members began competing. The new schools were: University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. BIG EAST institutions reside in nine of the nation’s top 34 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Milwaukee and Cincinnati. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain almost one fourth of all television households in the U.S. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 26 national championships in six different sports and 126 student-athletes have won individual national titles. The BIG EAST has enjoyed tremendous basketball success, especially in this decade. In 2008-09, the BIG EAST produced four of the eight Final Four teams in men’s and women’s basketball. It was only the second time in NCAA history that one conference placed that many Final Four teams in the same season.


In 2003-04, Connecticut became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball titles in the same season. In ’02-03, the BIG EAST became the first conference in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s titles in the same year when the Syracuse men and the Connecticut women captured their respective national championships. In men’s basketball, BIG EAST squads have won three of the last 11 NCAA championships. BIG EAST women’s teams have taken six of the last 10 NCAA titles. Proactive movement has been a signature strategy for the conference that was born in 1979. The BIG EAST continually turns challenges into opportunities to become stronger. In 2009-10, the BIG EAST will add men’s lacrosse to its growing list of sports, which will increase its total to 24 sport championships. The first women’s golf championship was held in the spring of 2003. Women’s lacrosse and rowing were added in 2001. The BIG EAST became a reality on May 31, 1979, following a meeting of athletic directors from Providence College, St. John’s, Georgetown and Syracuse universities. Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College completed the original seven school alliance.

While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broad based programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its student-athletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably show a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. Any successful organization has been fortunate to have outstanding leadership. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Dave Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990. In his first year, he administered the formation of The BIG EAST Football Conference. For 2009-10, the BIG EAST will undergo one significant change. Tranghese stepped down from his position on June 30, 2009. John Marinatto, who has served as senior associate commissioner, has moved into the Commissioner’s chair. The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST student athletes. The conference has enjoyed long-standing relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC.

BIG EAST men’s basketball games are regular sellouts at campus and major public arenas, including the annual men’s BIG EAST Championship in Madison Square Garden. The women’s basketball championship has led all conferences in attendance for the past six years. Attendance figures also are significant in soccer and baseball. More than 550 BIG EAST student-athletes have earned all America recognition and dozens have won individual NCAA national championships. The BIG EAST has been well represented in U.S. or foreign national and Olympic teams. Several athletes earned gold medals in each of the last six summer Olympiads. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 athletes. I NCAA women’s basketball titles by Connecticut I I I I I

Agnus

Berenato

Speaking at Seton Hill’s 2009 Commencement

In just six seasons, Agnus Berenato has not only changed the face of the program here at Pitt, but has done so in dramatic fashion. After a second straight trip to the Sweet 16 in 2008-09, the Panther women’s basketball team has grown into a nationally ranked and recognized team, following suit with the strong Pittsburgh tradition of sports teams. For the amazing transformation Berenato has accomplished with the Pitt program, she was awarded a contract extension through the 201516 season. Berenato and the Panthers went on to a fourth-straight record setting season, starting with its first-ever invite to the State Farm Tip Off Classic against Texas A&M. Pitt set a school record for wins in a season with 25 as well as winning percentage (.758) following a 25-8 final mark. Among those 25 wins, Pitt defeated then No. 8 Maryland by 29 points for the biggest win over the highest ranked team in school history. Their 22-win regular season tied the 2006-07 squad for the most in school history. They also tallied the best Big East finish at 12-4 and entered their Big East Tournament as the No. 3 seed, the best since the 1993-94 season. In postseason play, the Panthers earned the highest seed in school history entering the NCAA Tournament as they were awarded a No. 4 spot in the Oklahoma City Regional. Upon reaching the 20-win mark for the fourth consecutive season, the Panthers’ success was awarded with several national rankings. Pitt finished the season with a No. 15 ranking in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll, tying the highestever ranking in the coaches poll. In the Associated Press poll during the year, the Panthers held the No. 14 ranking, tying the best ever in the AP poll.

2009 -10 Pitt Women’s Basketball

Head Coach ■ Seventh Season at Pittsburgh 26th season overall ■ 397-338 overall record Alma Mater: Mount St. Mary’s, 1980 ■ Hometown: Gloucester City, N.J. Three Panthers earned All-Big East honors following the season highlighted by Pitt’s first three-time All-Big East First Team selection in Shavonte Zellous. Zellous was also named to the Big East All-Tournament team. Xenia Stewart was named to the second team while freshman Shawnice “Pepper” Wilson garnered All-Big East Freshmen honors. Another first for Pitt was the All-America honor received by Zellous. Pitt’s first All-American was awarded Associated Press Third Team All-America accolades and also marked the Panthers’ first WNBA draft pick when she was taken 11th overall in the first round by the defending champion Detroit Shock. Zellous was also a Region I State Farm Coaches All-American, marking two straight years that a Pitt player as achieved that honor.

Following the season, freshman Shawnice Wilson became the first Panther to compete for a spot on the USA Basketball U19 team. Wilson was a finalist before having to withdraw due to injury. Berenato’s impact on the program has reached far beyond the court and the win/loss column, however, as she has put Pitt women’s basketball on the map. Over the past two seasons, Pitt was on national, regional or local television 31 times and received unprecedented coverage on the national scene. In 2007-08, Pitt became just the 10th school in the last 20 years to advance to the Sweet 16 in just its second ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Panthers also became the first since 2000 when they upset No. 3-seed and 12th-ranked Baylor in the second round, 67-59.


THIS IS PITT COACHING STAFF 2009-10 TEAM 2008-09 SEASON IN REVIEW PITT HISTORY AND RECORDS BIG EAST/NCAA UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH

Also in 2007-08, the team tied the then school record for wins in a season with 24, reached the semifinals of the Big East Tournament by defeating No. 9 Notre Dame, and received a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament. That win over Notre Dame marked Pitt’s first-ever win over a top 10 school and was one of four victories over top 15-ranked teams that season – another school record. Individually, Pitt had four players honored on All-Big East teams including Shavonte Zellous on the first team, Marcedes Walker on the second team and Chelsea Cole and Taneisha Harrison on the All-Freshmen squad. Walker became Pitt’s first-ever four-time All-Big East team member and also earned her second Region I State Farm Coaches All-America team honor as a senior, which was also a first for a Panther player. The Panthers earned their highest-ever ranking in the top 25 polls with a No. 14 Associated Press mark and No. 15 in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll. Under Berenato’s guidance, Pitt has had four consecutive 20-win seasons and four consecutive post-season tournament appearances, which are both school bests. Prior to the 2006-07 season, Berenato made clear her intentions of being a participant at the NCAA Tournament – Pitt’s first in school history. After the loss of senior Mallorie Winn to injury, Berenato’s goals did not change. In fact, they intensified playing to the most wins in Pitt history with a 24-9 record – including a 71-61 win over James Madison in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. That 2006-07 squad earned its first-ever ranking in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches poll and was ranked in the AP poll for the first time since 1979. Marcedes Walker was named Pitt’s first Kodak/WBCA District I All-American in 16 years and Shavonte Zellous earned the Big East’s Most Improved Player award. Walker and Zellous were also named to the All-Big East First Team and freshman Jania Sims earned All-Freshman team honors. In 2005-06, Pitt concluded the season at 22-11, which at the time, tied the school record for wins. In addition, the Panthers finished above .500 with a 9-7 Big East Conference record and secured a sixth-place finish – the Panthers’ highest since 1995.

All of that success landed Pitt in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament for just the fourth time in school history – something many had not predicted at the beginning of the season after being picked to finish 13th of 16 teams in the Big East Conference. The Panthers again surpassed expectations advancing to the semifinals of the WNIT with three victories. Two Pitt players earned All-Big East honors when Marcedes Walker (First Team) and Mallorie Winn (Second Team) were announced on March 3, 2006 at the conference’s annual banquet. Under Berenato’s guidance in 2004-05, the Panthers began to make significant strides in becoming a top-notch program worthy of hosting an event such as the NCAA Tournament. On the court, Walker became the first Pitt freshman in school history to nab All-Big East honors. Off the court, 10 of Berenato’s players earned at least a 3.0 grade-point average to give the Panthers an All-America Academic Team nomination. The success is a credit to Berenato’s character and the fact that she practices what she preaches to her team. Her passion for women’s basketball has helped make her players better students and better people. She has things to do, goals to achieve, and plans to see them through – the faster, the better. Since joining Pitt from Georgia Tech prior to the 2003-04 season, Berenato has worked with her staff to make the Panthers a perennial postseason team. The success has been apparent, jumping from six wins in her first year with the Panthers to 13 her second season and more than 20 wins each of the last four years (22, 24, 24, 25). Among her accomplishments at Pitt: • First appearance in the prestigious State Farm Tip Off Classic, featured nationally on ESPN 2 • Shawnice “Pepper” Wilson as a finalist for the USA Basketball’s U19 team • Shavonte Zellous was named an Associated Press third team All-American • Shavonte Zellous became the first Pitt player taken in the WNBA draft (11th overall, first round) • Set the school win record for the third straight season (25) • Highest ranking in school history – No. 14 in AP and No. 15 in Coaches (2008-09)

“We’re building a top-notch program here and everything that’s happening is a step in that direction,” Berenato said. “We want all of our players to strive to play on national teams and to be the best they can be on the court and in the classroom.” A subject of importance with Berenato is her devotion to the community and her work in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas is extensive. She recently received her second Dapper Dan Sportswoman of the Year award in the last three years (2005 and 2007), a prestigious award in the city of Pittsburgh given to someone who succeeds athletically, as well as makes a difference in the community. She was also recently named by Pitt Magazine as one of its “12 Phenomenal Women” due to her successes on the court and her contributions off the court. In May of 2009, Berenato was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Seton Hill University and delivered the commencement speech to their spring graduates. Berenato has been named to the Board at Magee-Women’s Research Institute and Foundation in Pittsburgh. She is an advocate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation’s Race For The Cure – a charity organization for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. In addition to her local involvement, Berenato initiated Pitt’s annual Pink the Petersen event, which takes place at a game every season and helps to promote awareness and raise funds for breast cancer. The Panthers and the Susan G. Komen Foundation join forces for the annual event, which has become extremely successful in the Pittsburgh area. In 2008, Berenato was recognized by her alma mater, Mount St. Mary’s, when she received the Bicentennial Medal of Honor. She has been honored by the Girl Scouts Trillium Council as the Sports and Fitness honoree at their Women and Girls of Distinction ceremony, earned induction into the Camden County [N.J.] Sports Hall of Fame, and was named a finalist for the prestigious ATHENA Award. In the spring of 2004, Berenato received the “Native Son Award,” an annual award presented by the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association to a native of the Philadelphia area who has achieved success in athletics.

Anyone who meets Agnus for the first time cannot help but be impressed with both her knowledge and enthusiasm. Certainly with over 300 career victories, her ability as a coach is obvious. Just as exciting, Agnus has demonstrated a record of commitment to academics and the complete development of her student-athletes.

Jeff

Williams

Associate Head Coach ■ Seventh Season Alma Mater: Howard, 1987 Jeff Williams is in his seventh year on the Pitt women’s basketball staff and enters his fourth season as its Associate Head Coach under Head Coach Agnus Berenato. With nearly two decades of basketball coaching experience, Williams works with the post players and assists in recruiting, preseason and postseason conditioning, scouting and community involvement. “It is a tremendous honor to work for one of the best head coaches in the country,” said Williams on Berenato. “Agnus is an outstanding motivator and teacher. We all look forward to the challange of trying to compete for a Big East and National Championship this year.” Williams’ work with the Panthers has been on display with the development of Marcedes Walker as she immediately became one of the top scorers and rebounders in the Big East Conference as a freshman.

SUPPORT STAFF Carol

Sprague Senior Associate Athletic Director 36th Season at Pittsburgh Alma Mater: Slippery Rock, 1971 Hometown: Penn Hills, PA Carol Sprague continues to be at the forefront of many initiatives and positive developments in Pitt Athletics. Her career spans three decades of service and her responsibilities during that time have been ever evolving. She has been the driving force in the recent rise in Pitt Women’s Basketball. Carol was deeply involved in the successful search for Coach Berenato and has worked hard behind the scenes to provide the necessary support for success. Sprague, through her hard work and perseverance, was instrumental in bringing the 2007 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament to Pittsburgh, a first for the city. Through her commitment to excellence, and five years of experience on the NCAA Women’s Basketball Committee, Sprague has come to learn the keys to putting together successful championship events. It was no surprise that the 2007 Selection Committee trusted the Pitt staff with two number one seeds, or that some of the game’s best coaches left Pittsburgh saying that it was a 1st and 2nd Round experience that felt like a Regional. Following that success Sprague was at the fore front of efforts that resulted in the selection of Pittsburgh and the Petersen Events Center for the 2010 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball 1st and 2nd Rounds. At the 2007 NCAA Final Four she was honored by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association as their Administrator of the Year. Sprague credits the Pitt coaches, players, staff, the Petersen Events Center staff and ushers, and the fans that supported the 2007 Championship for this prestigious honor. As Senior Associate Athletic Director, Sprague takes the lead for the Department on all Petersen Events Center events. In addition, she leads a team of administrators that provides facility and operational support for all Pitt athletic events as well as facility maintenance and construction, serves as the sport administrator for women’s basketball and is the department’s Senior Women’s Administrator.

Sprague worked as the athletic department’s project manager during the planning and construction of the Petersen Events Center. Her responsibilities included researching numerous aspects of the arena to determine everything from the large screen video boards to the location of telephone outlets. She also provided architects and contractors with information about athletic and spectator functionality of many areas of the building. Sprague was instrumental in the planning and construction of new locker rooms, training rooms and an equipment complex in Fitzgerald Field House, the renovation of the Pitt Wrestling Training Center, the construction of Pitt’s Gymnastics Training Center and the construction of a new Weight Training Center in the Fitzgerald Field House. She also oversaw the department’s move from Pitt Stadium to Bruce Hall and to the Petersen Events Center. Sprague is well respected by her Big East Conference peers and currently serves on the Big East Conference Championship Committee. In 2004, Sprague completed five years of service on the prestigious NCAA Women’s Basketball Committee. The committee is responsible for the selection of atlarge teams in the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship field. Behind the scenes the committee takes on the responsibilities for tournament site selection, tournament format, and marketing and television relationships. Sprague’s most recent national committee experience came with a term on the Executive Board of the National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors. She has also been a member of the NCAA Management Council, the NCAA Council, the NCAA Administrative Committee, the NCAA Administrative Review Committee and the NCAA Playing and Practice Sessions Committee. She has extensive experience on various Big East Conference administrative and sports committees. Sprague began her career with Pittsburgh in 1974 as an assistant swimming coach. Since that time she has held a variety of positions including coordinator of student affairs for student-athletes, assistant athletic director for women’s sports and associate athletic director for non-revenue sports. A graduate of Slippery Rock University, Sprague earned her bachelor’s degree in health and physical education in 1971 and a Master of Science degree in 1974. A member of the Rockets’ swimming team, she was a national championship qualifier. Sprague additionally had a 22-year career with the Pittsburgh Debs women’s open division softball team. As a player, Sprague was a member of two United States Slo-Pitch Softball Association World Championship teams, and as a coach, she led the Debs to five national top-20 finishes. She was inducted into the Penn Hills Sports Hall of Fame in 1992 and was the 1993 recipient of the Women in Sports Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce. In May 1999, Sprague was inducted into the Western Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame.

Season Preview After a second straight Sweet 16 appearance and its third consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament, the Pitt women’s basketball team is ready to make the jump to the next level and the tools to do so are in place. Head coach AGNUS BERENATO has led the Panthers to record-breaking seasons year after year, and looks forward to another season getting underway. Pitt will look to build upon three straight trips to the NCAA Tournament and will prepare to do so with a bit of a home court advantage as the Panthers host the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament at the Petersen Events Center for the second time in the past four years. “Hosting in 2006-07 was tremendous for us,” Berenato said. “It is a great compliment to the University and the athletic departmet to be selected to host again. The women’s basketball committee in conjuction with our staff runs a first class event and we expect nothing short of that this year.” The Panthers have now had four consecutive 20-win seasons and three trips to the NCAA Tournament under Berenato. The milestones and program firsts continue to pile up. After another record-setting season in 2008-09, what is in store for this upcoming season? “We will need to build on what we have done in the past three seasons and continue the momentum in 2009-10,” said Berenato. “The next step is to move past the Sweet 16 and ultimately reach our goal of a National Championship.” The Panthers head into the 2009-10 season losing two key seniors that comprised the most successful class in Pitt history in Shavonte Zellous and Xenia Stewart. Over their four years, the Panthers went 95-39 (.709) as the two combined to score nearly 40 percent of Pitt’s points. Despite the loss of Zellous, a third-team Associated Press All-American and Stewart, a 2008-09 All-Big East Second Team selection, the Panthers look to add yet another banner to the rafters of the Petersen Events Center. Key components helping Pitt in its quest this season will be senior SOPHRONIA SALLARD (Syracuse, N.Y./Nottingham/Kansas) and juniors SHAYLA SCOTT (Monroeville, Pa./ Gateway) and JANIA SIMS (Newark, N.J./ Shabazz). Sims will be getting back into action after having suffered a season-ending injury just five minutes into last year’s season opener against Texas A&M at the State Farm Tip Off Classic.

2009 -10 Pitt Women’s Basketball

“We’re really, really exicted to have Jania back this year,” Berenato said. “She’s a very talented and true point guard, she is my coach on the court. She’s a difference maker and has a little razzle to her that gets everyone fired up.” Joining Sims as returners competing for a spot in the starting lineup will be Sallard and Scott. Sallard, the lone senior, is coming off a season in which she averaged career-bests in points per game (6.6) and rebounds per game (3.0). She played in all 33 games and started 14 of 16 Big East contests. Sallard has shown that she is a capable offensive weapon with the departure of the two leading scorers from last season in Zellous and Stewart. She tallied a career-high 20 points on 9-of-15 shooting in Pitt’s 61-53 overtime win at Rutgers, the first time they had ever beaten the Scarlet Knights in Piscataway. Shayla Scott also enters the 2009-10 season coming off a career year, averaging 8.7 points per game and a team-high 6.7 rebounds per game. This season, she will look to make the move to wing from the post position. “Shayla is going to add a lot of versatility to our team,” said Berenato. “She’s highly skilled and causes problems as far as matchups in the guard position is concerned.” With an ability to score from down low and on the perimeter (35 threes a year ago), Scott will be one of the biggest threats in the Panther lineup on a nightly basis. Despite the losses from last season, Pitt will return four players with All-Big East accolades. CHELSEA COLE (6-3, Jr., Forward, Lumberton, N.J.), TANEISHA HARRISON (6-0, Jr., Guard, Bowie, Md.), SHAWNICE “PEPPER” WILSON (6-6, So., Center, Pittsburgh, Pa.) and Sims have all earned All-Big East Freshmen Team honors within the past three years. “Our returning group of ladies is one that has yet to find their identity,” said Berenato. “Mallorie Winn, Marcedes Walker and Shavonte Zellous all created it for their respective teams and we are anxious to see who steps up now. Expectations are higher, which means we have to work harder, but I am confident this group will answer the call.” Joining the team this season will be 5-9, freshman guard ASHLEE ANDERSON (Chicago, Ill./Whitney Young) and 6-5, freshman center LEEZA BURDGESS (Miami, Fla./Miami Norland). After signing with the Panthers, but sitting out a year due to NCAA transfer rules is BRITTANEY THOMAS (5-8, Jr*., Guard, Montgomery, Ala.). Thomas played two seasons at Florida before making the move to Pitt.

Shayla Scott returns as Pitt’s leading scorer after averaging nearly nine points per game last season.

“Ashlee and Leeza bring two different styles to the table,” Berenato said. “Ashlee, a two or three guard, is a gutsy player who comes from a very athletic family and an established program that has instilled a winning philosophy. Look for her to make some noise this season with her style of play.” “Leeza is a highly motivated player that gets better by the day. As time goes by she will prove to have a big impact on this team.” Redshirt junior forward SELENA NWUDE (6-5, Jr.*, Forward, Riverdale, Md.), returns after an injury riddled two years. Nwude sat out the 2007-08 season after injurying her knee in the final regular season game of 2006-07. After rehabing, Nwude again suffered a setback with an injury to the same knee and was forced to miss the first half of the 2008-09 season. She returned to the lineup and played in 16 games last season. If she can remain healthy this year, look for her production to pick up as her minutes increase.

Season Preview SCHEDULE Pitt starts the season off at home during the month of November. The opener will be against North Florida on Nov. 17. Pitt will look to avenge a 90-83 loss last season in Gainsville when the Florida Gators come to town on Nov. 20. “We’re really looking forward to the return of Florida on the schedule this season,” Berenato said. “They are a top 25 team and to host them here at Pitt is awesome!” The Panthers will host St. Francis on Nov. 24 before hosting their annual Thanksgiving Tournament Nov. 27-28. Pitt opens the month of December with a roadtrip to Youngstown State on Dec. 2 before returning home for two straight games against Western Michigan on Dec. 5 and Valparaiso on Dec. 8. The Panthers will hit the road for three straight games at Penn State on Dec. 12, at Western Kentucky on Dec. 22 and at Austin Peay on Dec. 20 before coming home to finish the 2009

calender year. Cross town rival Duquesne comes to the PEC on Dec. 29 while Mount St. Mary’s rounds out the non-conference schedule on Dec. 31. The Big East schedule has the Panthers will welcoming Connecticut, Georgetown, Louisville, Rutgers, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Syracuse and West Virginia. Pitt will travel to Cincinnati, DePaul, Marquette, Notre Dame, Providence, South Florida, Villanova and West Virginia. “Having Connecticut and Louisville in the national championship game last year obiovusly tells you something about our conference,” Berenato said. “I’m excited to compete in the biggest and best conference in the country again this season and I’m sure we, as a conference, will not disappoint college basketball fans.”

GUARDS Fresh faces will fill the guard positions in the Pitt lineup this season. Sims, back from injury, will be joined by Sallard, Harrison, Thomas, SARAH OGOKE (Sugar Land, Texas/Dulles), and rookie Anderson. Harrison, a strong candidate for last season’s sixth man award, is due for a breakout year after playing in all 33 games, while making 13 starts last season, gaining valuable minutes. Standing at 6-0 with a quick first step, she will be a legitmate scoring threat after averaging 8.5 points per game in 2008-09. Thomas should fill a scoring role in the Pitt lineup this season. “She loves to play,” says Berenato. “She is strong and can take it inside or come off a screen and shoot with accuracy.” Ogoke will serve as Sims’ backup at the point. Last season she provided depth off the bench in 23 games. She could also see action at the twospot as well. “As a group these girls will have to gel together in order for us to be successful. We lost two great players, but are now in the position where anyone can step up. Competition will be fierce and everyone will be a better player because of it.”

Wilson will anchor the center position for the Panthers having produced 6.8 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game in 32 starts last season. A knee injury forced her to withdraw from the USA U19 squad but she is expected to be back and ready for fall practice. “It was an unfortunate setback with the knee injury, but Pepper is really working hard on getting back to the team,” Berenato said. Cole enters her junior campaign with a career .454 shooting percentage (108-for-241) and is known for her defensive effort. “Chelsea is a quick twitch athlete, one of the most athletic ladies on the team,” Berenato said. “She’s phenomenal with blocking ability and will benefit a great deal with Jania back in the lineup on the offensive end.” Popovec and her blue collar work ethic will bring extra support to the backcourt this season. She played in 27 games, making one start along the way and averaged 4.3 points in just over 13 minutes of playing time per game. An ankle injury in the middle of the season forced a decline in court time, but look for her to battle under the boards yet again this year after averaging 4.8 rebounds per game last season. Burdgess has time to develop with Wilson, Popovec and Nwude, but will be available when called upon througout the season.

FORWARDS/POSTS The Panthers return a strong cast of forwards and centers this season, highlighted by All-Big East Freshman selection and USA Basketball U19 team finalist Pepper Wilson. Cole, Nwude, KATE POPOVEC (Canfield, Ohio/Canfield) and Burdgess join Wilson to form a dynamic cast this season.

Pepper Wilson garnered All-Big East Freshman Team honors and was a finalist for the USA Basketball U19 squad.

Sophronia Sallard will be looked upon to provide leadership to a young Panther team in 2009-10.

THIS IS PITT COACHING STAFF 2009-10 TEAM 2008-09 SEASON IN REVIEW PITT HISTORY AND RECORDS BIG EAST/NCAA UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH

There’s no place like Pitt because: This is my hometown! The view of Pittsburgh coming out of the Fort Pitt tunnel is: Breathtaking and comforting After the Penguins won the Stanley Cup, I: Texted Pep (Pepper Wilson) and told her, “Its’s great we can call this city of champions our HOMETOWN!” Seeing the Steelers Super Bowl ring makes my: Eyes hurt! The Bling Bling is ridiculous! Nothing annoys me more than: When my team loses in Catch Phrase when we play on the road My favorite place to go shopping is: Forever 21 and American Eagle If I could be a cartoon character, I would be: Princess Jasmine! She is the best! The first concert I went to was: B2K! If I was given a million dollars, I would: Go to Jamaica then Greece, then save the rest! All I want for Christmas this year is: To not be scared when we come back for practice. I chose number 25 because: My cousin Carmen wore it and I wanted to be just like her! Renny Clark and John Wilds are:

Shayla at the varsity walk’s block featuring her mother Jennifer Bruce.

2009-10 OUTLOOK Will show her versatility as both a prominent post player as well as a shooter who can step behind the arc and bury the jumper...will be seen in more of a leadership role with the departure of All-American Shavonte Zellous.

My favorite Pitt memory is: Being in Italy and Greece!

BATON ROUGE, LA — Texas A&M is one of the best defensive women’s basketball teams in the country. It is hard to score against them and as Pitt found out yesterday, it is darn near impossible without the starting point guard. Pitt also plays great defense, so the Aggies and Panthers staged an old-fashioned defensive slugfest in the State Farm Tip-Off Classic before a crowd of 7,954 at LSU’s Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The Panthers, who played the final 35 minutes without starting point guard Jania Sims because of a knee injury, couldn’t find enough points to win the game and dropped a 56-50 decision to the Aggies. Texas A&M coach Gary Blair acknowledged that it isn’t always fun to watch his team play because they work so hard on defense and fans generally like to see offense. Sims went down with the score tied, 7-7, and Stewart, a senior, had to step in and finish the game at point guard. She said she had not played the position since she was a freshman. Pitt had only three assists but had 22 turnovers. Pitt’s leading scorer, senior Shavonte Zellous, was being harassed the entire game by Texas A&M defensive whiz Danielle Gant. Zellous finished with a game-high 23 points but she scored 14 of those points from the freethrow line and she made only 3 of 16 shots. Despite the offensive struggles, Pitt led 25-23 at the half and 35-34 with 10:27 to play in the game but the Aggies used a 9-2 run over the next three minutes to pull away. They maintained at least a six-point cushion the rest of the way. Texas A&M got a boost off the bench from guard Sydney Colson, who had ACL surgery in July and was only supposed to play limited action. But Colson played 22 minutes and had 12 points, including two key 3-pointers.

KALAMAZOO, MICH. — The Pitt women’s basketball team (1-1) earned its first win of the season in convincing fashion with an 88-60 victory at Western Michigan (0-2). Shavonte Zellous led all scorers with a 23-point performance, including 20 in the first half. “We came out here today and had a business-like approach,” head coach Agnus Berenato said. “The team came out and went to work and got it done. This was a total team effort today. When we had players come off the bench, there was no drop off and that is great when you can do that.” Every player scored for the Panthers in the 28-point victory. Freshman Pepper Wilson scored 15 on the night and added six rebounds and two assists. Junior forward Sophronia Sallard dished out a career-high six assists on the night and senior Xenia Stewart is now just 16 points from 1,000 for her career with eight on the night. Pitt jumped out to a quick lead and never relinquished it as the Panthers shot an outstanding 52.8 percent from the field (19 of 36) in the first half. Pitt led 42-24 entering the lockerroom, led primarily by the dominating 20-point first half performance by Zellous. At one point in the middle of the half, she scored 12 straight points for the Panthers. The 18-point advantage for the Panthers was due in large part to a Western Michigan drought for over six minutes, as well as Pitt forcing 14 Broncos’ turnovers. It was more of the same to start the second half as Pitt charged to an 18-3 run to start the half on 7 of 12 shooting from the field. The Panthers went on to shoot 38 of 82 for the game for 46.3 percent shooting from the field. Pitt had 25 assists on the night and just 12 turnovers while forcing 26 Western Michigan turnovers.

PITTSBURGH — Senior Xenia Stewart scored her 1,000th career point in Pitt’s largest victory over Penn State in school history, a, 80-59 win at the Petersen Events Center. Stewart scored 17 points on the night and now sits at 1,001 points in her career, becoming the 16th player in school history to hit the milestone. The win is the biggest over Penn State in school history, surpassing the 86-69 Panther win on Feb. 12, 1983. It also marks a considerable improvement for the Panthers under sixth-year head coach Agnus Berenato as her first game in 2003 against the Lady Lions ended in a 96-44 defeat. The domination by the Panthers in this year’s game was from the very beginning. Pitt never trailed in the game and held a commanding 43-18 lead at the half. The Panthers held the Lady Lions to just 18.8 percent from the field during that time (30.0 percent for the game) and forced 18 total turnovers in the contest. Shayla Scott had a special night of her own as she picked up the second double-double of her career with 10 points and 10 rebounds, and was able to honor her mother, Jennifer Bruce Scott, prior to the game. Jennifer Bruce was the Big East Player of the Year in 1984 and helped lead her team to the Big East regular season title. The 1983-84 team was honored prior to the game for their 25th anniversary of the championship. The top scorer on the night was again senior Shavonte Zellous with 23 points and four rebounds. Zellous is averaging 23.0 points through three games this season. Freshman Pepper Wilson added 10 rebounds and junior Sophronia Sallard scored 14.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shavonte Zellous scored 20 of her 26 points in the second half to lead No. 24 Pittsburgh to an 86-57 upset of No. 8 Maryland. Xenia Stewart had 22 points, Shayla Scott added 13 and Taneisha Harrison had a career-high 12 assists for Pittsburgh (6-1), which won its sixth straight and beat a top 10 opponent for the second time in school history. “This is the biggest win in our program’s history,” Pittsburgh coach Agnus Berenato told the crowd after the game. Kristi Toliver scored 12 points and Lynetta Kizer had 10 for Maryland (7-2), which committed 22 turnovers in losing for the first time since a season-opening defeat at Texas Christian. “Pitt just outworked, outhustled and outcompeted us for 40 minutes,” Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. “All of the credit goes to Pitt. They did everything right. Everything we did was disappointing because we didn’t compete.” Pittsburgh scored the first six points of the second half behind a free throw from Harrison, a basket from Pepper Wilson, and a 3-pointer from Zellous for a 45-32 lead. The Panthers handed Maryland its biggest loss since a 74-44 defeat to Duke on March 6, 2005. “I just thought it was an awesome performance,” Berenato said. “We were well prepared, and it showed. It was a great victory.”

PITTSBURGH — Pitt improved to 7-1 on the season behind five players in double digits as the 16th-ranked Panther women’s basketball team defeated West Virginia State, 85-37, at the Petersen Events Center. “I think this is how you have to win,” head coach Agnus Berenato said. “We had five players in double figures today, and so many of our players contributing all different kinds of key stats. That’s players stepping up and that’s what good teams do.” Freshman Kate Popovec scored a career- and gamehigh 17 points and added 10 rebounds in the 48-point victory. Pitt has now won each of its seven games by an average of 33.9 points. Shayla Scott earned career highs in both points and rebounds with 14 each in just 25 minutes of play. Also scoring in double figures on the day were Taneisha Harrison with 15 points on 6 of 9 shooting, Chelsea Cole with 11 points and Shavonte Zellous with 10 points. Pitt led by 14 at the half, 36-22, but pulled away early in the second and held the Yellow Jackets to just 15 points in the second half, while scoring 49. Pitt post players had most of the action as they out-scored West Virginia State 58-12 in the paint. The Panthers shot 50.0 percent on the day (36 of 72) and out-rebounded the Yellow Jackets 61-28 for the most Pitt rebounds since it totaled 61 on Nov. 20, 2007 at Mount St. Mary’s last season — an 82-31 victory.

PITTSBURGH — The Pitt women’s basketball team’s dominance continued with a 98-41 win over Wagner as the 16th-ranked Panthers improved to 8-1 on the season. “I am really proud of our team,” head coach Agnus Berenato said. “Wagner did a great job, they fought until the end. Now we just need to focus on working hard and getting better. I think our girls really enjoy that. They like playing basketball with each other and the girls like wearing a Pitt uniform. They’re a group that wants to get better.” Pitt had all five scorers tally double figure points, including 26 from senior guard Shavonte Zellous, and the team contributed a school record-tying 12 blocks in the win. Also scoring in double figures were Taneisha Harrison with 17, Shayla Scott and Xenia Stewart with 12 and Pepper Wilson with 10. Scott added eight rebounds and Stewart added six rebounds and six assists. Pitt out-rebounded the Seahawks 59 to 28 and forced 26 turnovers. The Panthers yet again shut down the opposing team’s leading scorer as Wagner’s Andrea Reed scored just six points on the night. Pitt led 46-23 at the half, but pulled away in the second, outscoring Wagner 52-18 in the second half for the 57-point victory.

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. — The Pitt women’s basketball team can light up a scoreboard. The No. 16 Panthers’ 89-59 win over Florida A&M was the fourth straight game and eighth in the last nine that they eclipsed the 80-point mark. Yet, it was Pitt’s defense that kick-started the scoring at Gaither Gym. The Panthers (9-1), winners of nine straight, held FAMU (4-5) to one basket from the floor in the game’s first 7:58. Their long arms disrupted the Rattlers’ passing lanes and Pitt turned 17 FAMU turnovers into 26 points. “We like to get out and play defense,” Panthers coach Agnus Berenato said. “We like to play strong on-ball defense.” Senior Xenia Stewart scored a season-high 27 points to lead the Panthers, hitting 3 of 4 shots from 3-point range. “Xenia is our warrior,” Berenato said. “She’s so strong and so mentally tough. But that’s just how she plays.” FAMU’s 3-point shooting was one of the team’s few bright spots. The Rattlers hit 6 of 11 shots from the 3-point line. Freshman Tameka McKelton led Florida A&M, shooting 3-for-4 from behind the arc and scoring 17 points. Rattlers coach LeDawn Gibson said Pitt’s defense was tough to overcome, as was the knowledge that FAMU was hosting a nationally ranked foe. Shavonte Zellous scored 21 points for the Panthers and pulled down seven rebounds, while Shayla Scott had nine rebounds and nine points. Antonia Bennett added nine points for FAMU, while Melissa Daniels scored seven points with seven rebounds. The Rattlers were without second-leading scorer Stephanie Foster for most of the game. Foster, suffering from the flu, played just seven minutes.

GAINESVILLE, FLA. — Sha Brooks had 24 points and eight rebounds and Lonnika Thompson added a careerhigh 16 points, sending Florida (No. 24 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) past Pittsburgh (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today, No. 16 AP) 90-83. The Gators (11-1) won their 11th consecutive game and snapped Pitt’s nine-game winning streak. Shavonte Zellous scored a career-high 42 points for the Panthers (9-2). She was 13-of-24 from the field, 3-of4 from 3-point range and 13-of-14 from the line. Zellous, who grew up in nearby Orlando, also had six assists and four rebounds. Xenia Stewart added 15 points for Pitt. Stewart and Zellous helped the Panthers turn a 55-46 deficit into a 70-62 lead midway through the second half. But Thompson hit three consecutive 3-pointers to put the Gators back in front for good. Florida used some offensive rebounds, a couple steals and four free throws in the final minute to seal the victory.

PITTSBURGH — For the fourth consecutive season, Pitt’s women’s basketball team earned its 10th win of the season before the month of January, as the Panthers garnered a 93-50 victory over Western Kentucky, at the Petersen Events Center. Pitt improved to 10-2 on the season. Tonight’s victory was also the 99th win for head coach Agnus Berenato at Pitt, as she has compiled a 99-68 record in her six seasons. This is also the fourth 40-plus margin of victory for the Panthers, this year. Pitt was led by seniors Xenia Stewart and Shavonte Zellous with 17 points, a piece. Also scoring in double figures, sophomore Taneisha Harrison added 13 points and freshman Kate Popovec chipped in 10. Falling one short of tying the school record for blocked shots, Pitt stuffed 11 shots on the night. Junior Sophronia Sallard, sophomore Shayla Scott and freshman Shawnice Wilson had three blocks each. In the opening stanza, the Panthers and Hilltoppers went through eight lead changes before Pitt took the final lead with a 9-0 run that was sparked by a Popovec layup. The Panthers held a 37-24 advantage at halftime. After the break, Pitt continued to push and extended its lead to 55-26 with an 18-2 run to open the second half.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shavonte Zellous had 34 points and No. 19 Pittsburgh scored the game’s last eight points to beat West Virginia 72-63 in the Big East opener for both schools. Xenia Stewart scored 12 points as Pitt (11-2, 1-0) earned its 10th win in 11 games and the 100th for coach Agnus Berenato in her six seasons at the school. Takisha Granberry scored 22 points for West Virginia (10-3, 0-1), which rallied from a 57-47 deficit to close to within one point at 64-63 on Granberry’s basket with 2:13 remaining. But Zellous scored on Pitt’s next two possessions, and the Panthers added four free throws in the final minute to win. Zellous, who also had five rebounds and four assists, scored twice and Stewart and Taneisha Harrison each hit 3-pointers during a 10-0 run that gave Pitt its 57-47 lead. Liz Repella scored 18 points and Sarah Miles had 14 for West Virginia.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Emily Cournoyer scored a season-best 19 points with 11 rebounds to propel Providence to a 77-69 upset of Pittsburgh (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 19 AP). The Friars’ win overshadowed the performance of Shavonte Zellous, who scored 28 points for Pitt (11-3, 1-1 Big East). Zellous, the nation’s fourth-leading scorer at 23.1 points per game, had 16 in the first half. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Providence (7-7, 1-1 Big East), which also got 14 points from Mi-Khida Hankins and 13 from Trinity Hull. Providence narrowed a 23-14 deficit with a 12-2 run late in the opening half to take the lead. Catherine Bove’s 3-pointer with two minutes remaining in the first half pushed Providence’s advantage to 34-27. Providence’s 40 points in the first half were a season high for the Friars, who led by as many as 16 with 9:14 to go in the second half. Providence shot 53.8 percent from the field in the second half to Pitt’s 34.3 percent. The last time the Friars defeated a ranked opponent was Feb. 19, 2008, when they topped then-No. 22 Syracuse 62-58 at home.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Natasha Williams scored 27 points, Deirdre Naughton added 24 and DePaul rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to hand No. 19 Pittsburgh its second consecutive loss, 69-62. Shavonte Zellous had 26 points, six rebounds and five assists, but no other Pitt player scored in double figures as the Panthers shot 34.5 percent (20-of-58). The Panthers were coming off a 77-69 loss at Providence on Wednesday. Pitt (11-4, 1-2 in Big East) led 43-34 with 18:44 remaining, but then went scoreless for nearly 6 1/2 minutes. Naughton’s 3-pointer put DePaul (13-4, 1-2) ahead for good at 53-52 with 5:53 remaining. Naughton later hit another 3 and scored off Felicia Chester’s steal on consecutive possessions to make it 60-54 with 4:04 to go. The Blue Demons closed it out by outscoring Pitt 7-2 over the last 3:21. DePaul won for the first time in three Big East games, but its two losses were to No. 10 Louisville and No. 12 Notre Dame.

GAME 18 (14-4, 4-2 BIG EAST) JAN. 24, 2009 #25 PITT 77 ■ SYRACUSE 75 CARRIER DOME

PITTSBURGH — Behind 27 points from senior Shavonte Zellous, the Pitt women’s basketball team (12-4, 2-2 Big East) got back on the winning track with a 79-47 dominating victory over USF (14-5, 1-4 Big East) at the Petersen Events Center. The 32-point victory is the largest Pitt win over the Bulls in school history and is the Panthers’ seventh 30point win this season. “I thought with the week off we really prepared for South Florida,” head coach Agnus Berenato said. “I’ve got to give credit to Xenia Stewart. She gave us 26 minutes running the point, had nine assists and didn’t turn the ball over once. Our seniors knew how much we really needed this win and they came out a little too fast, but I thought their leadership really got us going.” Although there were four lead changes, Pitt pulled away mid-way through the first half with an 11-0 run to take the 22-13 lead for good. Sophomore Shayla Scott got the team started with two quick three-pointers in the first two and a half minutes of the game. Scott went on to score nine, while adding seven rebounds. Zellous, in addition to her game-high 27 points, added seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes. She shot 3 of 8 from three-point range and was 8-for-9 from the free throw line. The senior guard is currently second in the country and first in the Big East in scoring with 23.8 points per game. Also scoring in double figures for the Panthers in the win were Taneisha Harrison with 13 points and Pepper Wilson, who earned her first career double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Chelsea Cole grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds on the day and senior Xenia Stewart dished out nine assists without a single turnover from the point guard position.

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) — After losing two straight Big East contests and falling out of the women’s basketball Top 25 for the first time in six weeks, the Pitt Panthers wanted to make sure their return to the nation’s elite would be permanent. “Every team has a downfall,” said Pitt senior guard Shavonte Zellous, whose 29 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and four blocks led the Panthers past Seton Hall 76-40 Tuesday night. “We wanted to make a statement that Pitt still has a good team. It’s one of our goals to remain in the Top 25.” After losing consecutive games to Providence and DePaul, the Panthers (13-4, 3-2 Big East) have enjoyed two straight blowout wins. They beat South Florida 79-47 on Saturday. “We know how hard it is to win on the road in this conference,” said Zellous, the nation’s second-leading scorer, averaging 23.8 points per game. “We wanted to come out tonight and throw the first punch.” The Panthers, who never trailed, broke the game open in the first half, going on two big runs. The first, a 10-0 stretch over 3:27, pushed the lead to 22-7 with 10:12 remaining. The second, an 11-0 run over 4:11, put the game out of reach at 36-11 with 3:19 remaining. Zellous scored the final five points of that run, part of her 16 first-half points. “Shavonte is one of the greatest players in the country,” said teammate Sophronia Sallard, who added 12 points. “When she’s on a roll, we just let her go. I kind of enjoy watching it, because she’s fun to watch.” Sallard said that the Panthers took their omission from the Top 25 last week to heart. “Of course, everyone on the team took it personal,” Sallard said. “It’s good to be back in there and we want to stay there.”

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Xenia Stewart hit a pullup jumper from right wing at the final buzzer and No. 25 Pittsburgh held off Syracuse 77-75. The Panthers (14-4, 4-2 Big East) led most of the way and made six straight free throws to take a 75-70 lead with 1:27 to go. Syracuse (13-6, 2-4) then tied it after Erica Morrow swished a 3-pointer from the top of the key and Chandrea Jones converted a driving layup with 19.7 seconds left. Zellous, who assisted on the winning basket, led Pitt with 15 points on 3-for-12 shooting, Shayla Scott and Taneisha Harrison each had 13, Stewart finished with 11, and Chelsea Cole had nine points and 11 rebounds. Pittsburgh has now beaten Syracuse three straight times on the Orange’s home court and has won four straight in the series. But the Orange made this one difficult throughout, concentrating defensively on Zellous, who was averaging 24 points a game. Pittsburgh held 10-point leads in both halves, but after a three-point play by Pepper Wilson gave the Panthers a 57-47 lead with 15:07 left, Syracuse continued to display plenty of resolve in the wake of a 54-point loss to topranked Connecticut a week earlier. The Orange responded with their second 14-4 run of the game. Tyler Ash began the spurt by converting two follow shots and Morrow finished it with a 3-pointer and driving layup to tie it at 61-all at 9:21. After Vionca Murray hit three free throws to give Syracuse only its second lead of the game, 68-67 with 6:01 left, Scott fed Cole for a layup to give Pitt the lead back and the Panthers managed to hold it. Harrison made four straight free throws and Stewart hit two more to give the Panthers a 75-70 lead with 87 seconds to play.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Shavonte Zellous scored 15 of her 19 points in the second half to lead No. 21 Pittsburgh to a 50-39 win against Georgetown. Xenia Stewart scored all 11 of her points in the first half for the Panthers. Shayla Scott had her third doubledouble with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Pittsburgh (15-4, 5-2 Big East) tied its season low for total points, but still won its fourth game in a row. For Georgetown (13-7, 3-4), it was the fewest points the Hoyas have scored since losing to Pittsburgh 70-33 in the final game last season. Karee Houlette led the Hoyas with 11 points. The Panthers trailed 27-23 at halftime, but took the lead with a 13-0 run to open the second half — with nine of the points coming from Zellous — holding Georgetown scoreless for nearly eight minutes. Zellous led the Big East in scoring entering the game, averaging 23.6 points, but she finished the first half with nearly as many fouls — three — as points, picking up a personal and a technical in a skirmish for a loose ball in the final seconds before halftime. After going 1-of-6 from the field in the first half, she came out aggressively in the second half, sparking the Panthers’ moribund offense and helping Pittsburgh build the lead. Both teams struggled on offense before halftime — Pittsburgh’s 23 first-half points tied their lowest output in any half this season. But while the Panthers’ fortunes improved after halftime, the Hoyas’ did not. Georgetown was 4-of-26 in the second half, scoring a season-low 12 points.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shavonte Zellous scored 31 points and No. 21 Pittsburgh won its fifth straight game, 86-54 over Marquette. Zellous, the leading scorer in the Big East, moved within 21 points of becoming Pitt’s third 2,000-point scorer. Pepper Wilson had 13 points and 17 rebounds, and Taneisha Harrison added 15 points for the Panthers (16-4, 6-2). Krystal Ellis scored 13 points for Marquette (12-9, 3-4), which leads the series 4-2. The Golden Eagles struggled from the start and finished 16-for-61 from the field (26 percent). They didn’t make more than nine shots in either half. Zellous shot 6-for-12 and scored 17 points in the first half as the Panthers raced to a 43-21 lead. Pittsburgh outrebounded Marquette 50-36 and outscored the Eagles 32-20 in the paint.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shavonte Zellous scored 29 points, surpassing 2,000 in her career, and No. 22 Pittsburgh beat No. 19 Notre Dame 82-70 for its sixth straight victory. Xenia Stewart and Taneisha Harrison scored 17 points and Shayla Scott added 11 points and a career-high 18 rebounds for the Panthers (17-4, 7-2 Big East). Pepper Wilson had 12 rebounds for Pittsburgh, which beat Notre Dame for the third time in the past four games. Notre Dame leads the series 17-3. Becca Bruszewski and Erica Solomon scored 14 points for Notre Dame (16-5, 5-4), which has lost four of its past six games. Zellous, the Big East’s leading scorer, became the third player in school history to surpass 2,000 points when she made a one-handed lay-in with 12:30 left in the game. She was fouled on the play by Ashley Barlow, but missed the free throw. Notre Dame, which never led, closed to 49-48 on Erica Williamson’s basket 5 minutes into the second half. Zellous then scored eight points during a 14-6 Pitt run which put the Panthers ahead 63-54. The Irish got no closer than seven points the rest of the way. Zellous scored 11 of Pitt’s first 21 points but was limited to 12 minutes in the first half because of foul trouble. Pitt raced out to leads of 8-0 and 15-4. The Irish got as close as three points before a late run by the Panthers gave them a 40-31 halftime lead.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Sophronia Sallard scored a career-high 20 points and Shayla Scott hit consecutive 3-pointers in overtime to help No. 19 Pittsburgh beat Rutgers 61-53, ending a 13-game losing streak to its Big East rival. Scott finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds and Shavonte Zellous added 15 points for Pitt (18-4, 8-2), which has won seven straight. Epiphanny Prince scored 21 points for Rutgers (13-9, 5-6), which hadn’t lost to Pitt in 11 years. With the game tied at 49 in overtime, Scott hit a 3pointer from the top of the key to give Pitt a three-point advantage. Prince made a layup to cut the deficit to one before Scott hit another 3-pointer from the corner with 1:16 left to make it a four-point game. Prince missed a 3-pointer in the corner and Sallard hit two free throws to seal the victory. Rutgers held a 41-33 lead with 8:35 left in regulation before Pittsburgh went on a 10-2 run to tie it at 43. Prince missed a floater in the lane with 35 seconds to go and on the ensuing rebound Nikki Speed threw the ball away giving Pittsburgh one last chance to win in regulation. Sallard missed a 15-footer and Scott’s follow was blocked out of bounds with 2.3 seconds left. Zellous caught the ball in the corner off the inbounds, but her jumper bounced off the rim as time expired sending the game to overtime. Zellous, who came in leading the Big East with 24 points a game, was just 5-for-16 shooting. Pitt was averaging 79 points before scoring a seasonlow against Rutgers. The Panthers struggled to get points against the Scarlet Knights, settling for jumpers.

STORRS, CONN. (AP) — It was a special day for Renee Montgomery. Montgomery became the first active player in UConn history to have her jersey put up in the Huskies of Honor and she scored 20 points to help the top-ranked Huskies beat No. 19 Pittsburgh 95-42. Connecticut scored the game’s first seven points before Shayla Scott hit a 3-pointer for Pitt. UConn then went on a 15-0 run that included five points by Montgomery to build a 22-3 lead just 5 minutes into the game. “The way we played today it would have been hard for anyone to beat us,” Auriemma said. “We played really, really well today.” Shavonte Zellous scored 16 points to lead the Panthers (18-5, 8-3), who never recovered and could only get within 16 points the rest of the game. Maya Moore added her 14th double-double of the season with 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Huskies, while Tina Charles had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Kalana Greene had 11 points and 11 rebounds. It was second time Connecticut had three players with doubledoubles. Tiffany Hayes scored 15 points, marking the 11th time this season UConn has had five players score in double figures. The Panthers were out of this game quickly, unable to contain the Huskies. They didn’t score consecutive baskets until nearly 12 minutes had gone by in the first half. Pitt’s mini 7-0 spurt cut the deficit to 28-12, but Moore quickly answered with a 3-pointer and Connecticut was off and running again. The Huskies, including the coaching staff, wore pink sneakers in honor of breast cancer awareness and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. UConn’s uniforms had a special pink trim while Pittsburgh wore completely pink uniforms.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shavonte Zellous scored 23 points and Shayla Scott hit a pair of 3-pointers during a late 11-0 run and No. 19 Pittsburgh withstood Laura Kurz’s 35 points to beat Villanova 70-54. Kurz made 14 of 21 shots and all six free throws, but no other Villanova player had more than seven points. Pittsburgh (19-5, 9-3 in Big East) rebounded from a 95-42 loss to No. 1 Connecticut on Sunday by closing to within one victory of its fourth consecutive 20-win season. The Panthers, who have four regular-season games remaining, tied Villanova (17-9, 9-3) for third place in the conference standings but own the tiebreaker by virtue of the win. The top four teams in the conference receive a twogame bye in the Big East tournament. Kate Popovec added 12 points and Xenia Stewart scored 11 for the Panthers, who led 54-50 with 7:20 remaining before going on the decisive run ended by Scott’s 3-pointer with 3:03 to play. Scott scored nine points. Pittsburgh, which held a 37-25 rebounding edge, used a 12-2 run to take a 32-20 lead in the first half.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shayla Scott converted a threepoint play and made two free throws during a decisive 14-0 run during the second half and No. 19 Pittsburgh overcame some sub-par shooting to beat Cincinnati 68-53. Shavonte Zellous and Xenia Stewart scored 16 points each for the Panthers (20-5, 10-3 in Big East), who assured themselves of a fourth consecutive 20-win season. Zellous made only 6 of 22 shots while being held seven points below her 23.0 average, but also had six rebounds and five assists. The Panthers withstood their 36.9 percent shooting (24 of 65) by holding a 43-26 advantage in rebounding. Pitt led 41-40 following Kahla Roudebush’s layup for Cincinnati (13-13, 3-10) with 14:10 remaining before outscoring the Bearcats 22-3 over the next nine minutes, a stretch that included the 14-0 run. Jill Stephens scored 17 points for Cincinnati.

MORGANTOWN, W.VA. (AP) — Shavonte Zellous scored 25 points, overcoming first-half foul trouble, to help No. 15 Pittsburgh beat West Virginia 72-60. The Panthers (21-5, 11-3 Big East) were down by 12 in the first half, but used a 44-point second half to win for the 10th time in their past 11 games. Zellous picked up her second foul with 12:18 remaining in the first half and was forced to sit for the next seven minutes as her team cut the deficit to eight. She returned with 5:19 left in the half and the Panthers went into the locker room up 28-27. Pitt started the second half with six consecutive points, but West Virginia (15-12, 3-10) wouldn’t go away as Takisha Granberry made a 3-pointer to halt Pitt’s momentum. With the Mountaineers leading by two, Zellous’ layup started a 12-0 run to seal the victory. Liz Repella scord 17 points and Granberry added 16 for West Virginia. Pitt ended the game on a 15-7 run to secure the victory and clinched at least a No. 3 seed for the Big East Tournament.

LOUISVILLE, KY. — Louisville senior Candyce Bingham had a career day in her last home game. She scored a career-best 26 points, making 10-of-12 free throws to help No. 8 Louisville beat Pittsburgh (No. 20 ESPN/ USA Today, No. 15 AP) to secure the second seed in the Big East tournament. Fellow senior Angel McCoughtry added 22 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Shavonte Zellous scored 15 and had six rebounds for the Panthers, and Sophronia Sallard scored 13. Sallard made one field goal, scoring two points, in the second half after making all five of her field goals in the first half. Though the Panthers had four players 6-3 or taller on their roster, compared to Louisville’s tallest player, 6-2 Keshia Hines, the Cardinals outscored them 44-18 in the paint and had 15 offensive rebounds. Hines had 12 points and 10 rebounds. The Cardinals never trailed and put the game away with a 15-point run in the second half, after the Panthers got within three. Pittsburgh couldn’t overcome its 25 turnovers. Louisville built a 20-9 lead in the first half before Pittsburgh rallied to cut the deficit to 24-20 on a 3-pointer by Zellous. Louisville extended the lead to six at the half. The Panthers closed to 39-36 and was down 47-42 before Louisville took over scoring the next 15 points — including six by Bingham. McCoughtry’s 3-pointer, her last shot in Freedom Hall as a Cardinal, gave the Cardinals a 73-47 advantage for its biggest lead of the game.

PITTSBURGH — Shavonte Zellous scored 18 points in her final home game and Pittsburgh (No. 20 ESPN/ USA Today, No. 14 AP) rebounded from a loss by defeating St. John’s 79-60. The Panthers (22-6, 12-4 in Big East) opened up a 13point lead at halftime and had few problems in tying the school record for regular-season victories. Pitt was coming off a 75-51 loss to No. 7 Louisville on Saturday. Sky Lindsay scored 16 points and Kelly McManmon had 12 for St. John’s (16-13, 4-12), which dropped its fifth in six games. Zellous, who has 2,136 points, and Xenia Stewart each ended their regular-season careers at home for the Panthers, who are 92-37 the past four seasons after going 39-70 the previous four. Stewart scored 12 points, giving her 1,284 for her career. Pepper Wilson added 12 points and 11 rebounds and Sophronia Sallard had 10 points for Pitt, which previously clinched third place in the Big East standings.

HARTFORD, CONN. (AP) — Shavonte Zellous took a few seconds at halftime to pause and relax. The moment to reflect was all she needed to get herself going in the second half as she scored 15 of her 18 points after the break to help No. 14 Pittsburgh hold off DePaul 62-59 in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament. Pittsburgh (23-6) led 60-55 on Xenia Stewart’s free throw with 1:40 left, but DePaul (23-9) wasn’t done. Deirdre Naughton had a three-point play and Keisha Hampton hit one free throw to cut the deficit to 60-59 with 44.7 seconds left. Stewart scored 14 points and Sophronia Sallard added 12 for Pitt. Trailing 49-40, DePaul went on a 13-5 run to cut the deficit to 54-53 on Williams’ layup. She had a chance to complete the three-point play and tie it, but missed the free throw. Stewart hit a jumper and Zellous had a three-point play to make it 59-53. Williams’ layup set up the exciting finish. Pitt built its lead early in the second half turning a twopoint edge into a 45-33 advantage with a 12-2 spurt. Zellous, the Big East’s second-leading scorer at 22.6 points, ignited the burst with her first basket of the game. Naughton was held scoreless until she hit two free throws with just over a minute left in the first half to give DePaul a 28-27 lead at the break. Zellous was 0-for-6 from the field and had three points at the intermission. She wasn’t the only Panthers player to struggle from the field. The team was just 9-for-34 (27 percent). DePaul wasn’t much better going 9-for-35 (26 percent). Third-seeded Pittsburgh got a bye through the first two rounds of the tournament. The Blue Demons advanced to the quarterfinals by beating West Virginia 75-72 in overtime.

HARTFORD, CONN. (AP) — For the second straight year, Louisville and Connecticut will meet in the Big East championship game. McCoughtry scored 31 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to help No. 5 Louisville (29-3) hold off 14thranked Pittsburgh 69-63 setting up the championship rematch. Trailing 63-62 with 1:40 left, McCoughtry’s three-point play gave Louisville a two-point edge with 1:12 left. After a turnover by Xenia Stewart, McCoughtry hit a pull-up jumper from the wing with 23.5 seconds remaining to make it 67-63. Deseree Byrd hit two free throws for the final margin. Shavonte Zellous scored 24 points to lead Pittsburgh (23-7). Trailing by 10 at the break, Pittsburgh rallied to within one behind Zellous. She scored seven points as the Panthers opened the second half with a 14-4 run to cut the deficit to 46-45. McCoughtry and Louisville answered scoring the next eight points to make it 54-45 with 11:06 left in the game. Pitt wasn’t done, going on a 18-8 burst to take a 6362 lead - its first lead since early in the first half. Pepper Wilson, who had a career-high 16 points, hit back-to-back layups to cap the run and give the Panthers the edge. Third-seeded Pittsburgh made it to this round by edging DePaul 62-59 on Sunday night. Pitt faced Louisville on Feb 28 at the Cardinals senior day. Louisville won 75-51 as Candyce Bingham scored 26 points. In the first half Monday, Louisville struggled early on and was trailing 14-13 before going on a 12-2 run to take a 25-16 advantage. McCoughtry had six points during the burst. Pittsburgh then scored six straight to make it a threepoint game. But Louisville rebuilt its double-digit margin rattling off 11 of the next 12 points and led 41-31 at the half.

2008-09 Game Summaries GAME 31 (24-7, 12-4 BIG EAST) MARCH 21, 2009 #14 PITT 64 ■ MONTANA 35 BANK OF AMERICA ARENA SEATTLE, WASH. (AP) — Shavonte Zellous scored 15 of her 31 points in the first half to keep Pitt even with energized and inspired Montana, and the superior talent of the fourth-seeded Panthers took over in the second half of a 64-35 win in the first-round of the Oklahoma City Regional. Zellous carried Pitt in the first half and the Panthers defense did the rest. Pitt held 13th-seeded Montana to just 10 second-half points, tying the tournament record for fewest points allowed in a half. Connecticut gave up just 10 to Long Island in the second half of a first-round game in 2001. While Pitt coach Agnus Berenato claims her team doesn’t have any stars, it’s clear they’d be lost without Zellous. As her teammates struggled with Montana’s plodding, methodical pace in the first half, Zellous kept knocking down contested shots in traffic, and rarely missed when she found herself open in space. She then took advantage of Montana’s countless mistakes in the second half as a one-point Pitt (24-7) lead at halftime turned into a comfortable rout. Zellous scored six straight in barely 1 minute as part of the Panthers’ 13-2 run to open the second half that finally dimmed any upset hopes for the 13th-seeded Lady Griz. Zellous hit 13 of 27 shots and grabbed nine rebounds. Shayla Scott added 11 points, including a pair of 3-pointers during Pitt’s decisive charge to start the second half. The undersized and less athletic Lady Griz did their best to negate the Panthers superior talent in the first half. They handled Pitt’s trapping pressure defense in the early going and milked the shot clock on nearly every possession. But when the shots stopped falling, the Lady Griz quickly found themselves looking up at a huge deficit and getting worn down by the intensity of every possession against Pitt’s aggressive defense. Mandy Morales led Montana (28-5) with 11 points and eight assists, but her entire team struggled in the second half. Morales scored with 18:33 left in the second half to keep Montana within 28-27, but the Lady Griz missed their next eight shots and added seven turnovers to a 10-minute scoreless drought that was finally broken on Britney Lohman’s free throw with 8:20 left. By then, Montana was in a 49-28 hole and the 2,000 or so Lady Griz fans that made the eight-hour trek from Missoula to Seattle were left without much of a growl. Montana didn’t score another field goal until Jessa Loman Linford’s turnaround in the lane with 4:30 left, but Montana was just 4 of 22 shooting in the second half. The Lady Griz were trying for their first tournament win since beating San Diego State in the first round of the 1995 tourney as a No. 12 seed. Montana, which won its 21st Big Sky regular season title this season, has now dropped its last eight tourney games.

GAME 32 (25-7, 12-4 BIG EAST) MARCH 23, 2009 #14 PITT 65 ■ GONZAGA 60 BANK OF AMERICA ARENA SEATTLE (AP) — Shavonte Zellous carried Pittsburgh back to the round of 16. Barely. Zellous scored nine of her 24 points in the final 4 minutes, and Pittsburgh capitalized on Gonzaga’s youthful mistakes in the closing minutes of a 65-60 win in the second-round of the Oklahoma City Regional. The 12th-seeded Bulldogs made life extremely difficult for the No. 4 seed Panthers, but it was Zellous and Pitt’s experience coming through at the end. Zellous scored on a pair of drives off Gonzaga turnovers in the final 2 minutes then hit a pair of free throws to put the Panthers up 63-60 with 15.9 seconds left after another Gonzaga mistake. When Janelle Bekkering’s 3-pointer missed with 6 seconds left, the Panthers were headed to the regional semifinals for the second straight year. Xenia Stewart capped the victory with a pair of free throws with 3 seconds left and the Panthers assured themselves a date with either top-seeded Oklahoma or No. 9 seed Georgia Tech in the round of 16. Last year, Pitt advanced to the regional semis for the first time in school history before getting bounced by eventual national finalist Stanford.

Zellous struggled through one of her toughest outings of the season, only to come through with crucial plays in the closing minutes as Gonzaga showed the signs of a team playing just its third NCAA tournament game in school history. Neither team shot very well, but Pitt (25-7) was 20 of 22 at the free-throw line, the only two misses by Zellous. For all the great plays spunky Gonzaga point guard Courtney Vandersloot made in helping the Zags stay even with Pitt for most of the night, she was responsible for two tipped passes that turned into breakaways by Zellous in the closing minutes. Vandersloot led the Bulldogs (27-7) with 18 points, seven assists and seven rebounds. Heather Bowman, the Bulldogs’ leading scorer, battled her way to 15 points, but scored only one basket in the final nine minutes. The second half was a constant back-and-forth swing of momentum, neither team able to put together a sustained run and build any sort of cushion. The biggest lead for either team was Pitt’s final five-point margin. The Panthers led to 51-47 with 7:41 left and seemed on the verge of finally pushing ahead for good. But like most of the second half, Gonzaga wasn’t done. Vandersloot scored on a floater and Bowman’s threepoint play on the low block pushed Goznaga ahead by one. The Zags lead was three after Vandersloot’s smooth drive out of a timeout with 3:46 left, but Zellous pulled Pitt even with a 3 and Stewart’s 3 put the Panthers up 57-56 moments later.

2008-09 Game Summaries GAME 33 (25-8, 12-4 BIG EAST) MARCH 29, 2009 #4 OKLAHOMA 70 ■ #15 PITT 59 FORD CENTER OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA. (AP) — Whitney Hand couldn’t quite remember her teammate’s buzzer-beating 3pointer that started Oklahoma’s big run. And it took a few moments for her to remember the wild scoop shot that she contributed to that surge. Looking back, the game seemed to be as much of a blur for her as she made it for Pittsburgh. Hand set new career highs with 22 points and eight rebounds, and the top-seeded Sooners rolled to a 70-59 win over Pitt on Sunday night to reach the regional finals of the NCAA tournament for only the second time in school history. Oklahoma (31-4) put the game away with a 20-2 second-half surge that included Hand’s crazy shot that bounded its way into the basket. The Sooners were hardly bothered by foul trouble that kept Courtney Paris off the court much of the game, getting double-digit scoring from all five starters. Paris, the Sooners’ All-American center, made waves on her senior night earlier this month when she promised that Oklahoma would win its first national title or she’d pay back her scholarship money. So far, it has been Hand — who missed the last four games of the regular season with a broken left index finger — that’s been Oklahoma’s go-to girl in the NCAA tournament. And while she won’t take the credit, her coach is ready to give it to her. Shavonte Zellous scored 18 points on 7-for-20 shooting to lead Pitt, which lost in the round of 16 for the second straight year. Oklahoma, which made its only other regional final appearance in 2002 on its way to the national championship game, advances to face sixth-seeded Purdue (25-10) on Tuesday night. Hand hit three 3-pointers and scored 15 points in the second round against Georgia Tech to shake the rust off after three miserable games in which she went a combined 2-for-22 and got shut out twice. As it turned out, that was just a preview of what was to come. She hit four 3-pointers and scored 17 of the Sooners’ first 32 points as Oklahoma shrugged off Paris’ early foul trouble. After Paris went to the bench with her second foul, the Sooners outscored Pitt 15-7 over the next 3 1/2 minutes and stretched their lead to 39-25 on Nyeshia Stevenson’s 3-pointer with 3:03 left before halftime. Then, after Paris went to the bench with her fourth foul early in the second half, Hand came through with her circus shot in the lane. Hand gave an open-mouthed grin and got a few pats on her backside from her teammates before stepping to the line to complete her three-point play and make it 60-37 with 13:18 remaining. Oklahoma’s lead grew to 27 on Jasmine Hartman’s free throw shortly thereafter, and Pitt only made a dent in the lead by closing the game on a 12-0 run.

2009 -10 Pitt Women’s Basketball

Ashley Paris, Courtney’s twin sister, had 12 points and 12 rebounds for Oklahoma while her sister narrowly missed out on her 127th career double-double with 10 points and nine rebounds. Danielle Robinson and Stevenson, making her third straight start in place of the injured Amanda Thompson, scored 10 apiece. Thompson, who played only 3 minutes total in the first two rounds because of an injured left foot, logged another 3 minutes after the game was out of hand in the second half. Pitt went just 23-for-74 from the field — including a 1-for-12 stretch to start the second half. It got bad enough for the Panthers that even in the middle of their 10-2 run to get the lead below 20 points, freshman Kate Popovec fell into the lane before Zellous could attempt the front end of a one-and-one and Pitt lost possession. The Panthers already had to overcome a raucous home crowd for the Sooners, who were playing less than a half-hour from their campus. More than an hour before the game, the crowd was already showing its favoritism. When an image of Paris and two teammates walking down a hallway was flashed on the big screen in the second half of the PurdueRutgers game, fans applauded and yelled. The Sooners then got one standing ovation when they first stepped into the arena, huddling and jumping up and down near the unoccupied Pitt bench, and another as they ran back off the court after warmups.

Junior Shayla Scott’s versatility will allow her to create many mismatches on the court this coming season.

PITT AWARDEES OF DISTINCTION Since 1961, the Pitt Varsity Letter Club has honored those members who have distinguished themselves in their profession or community, and who, by their accomplishments, have enhanced the value of the intercollegiate athletic programs at the University of Pittsburgh. To be eligible, a nominee must have earned a varsity letter in intercollegiate athletics from the University 25 or more years ago. Debbie Lewis was the second women's basketball letterwinner to receive the Awardee of Distinction honor from the Pitt Varsity Letter Club. Debbie joins Dr. Mary Ellen Klobchar Wyszomierski in being awarded this most prestigious honor. Mary Ellen received this honor in 2001. This award is unique in that it measures the service and accomplishments of Pitt athletic alumni after leaving school.

2009 -10 Pitt Women’s Basketball

Yale followed Pitt's lead when Tom Beckett, the current athletic director at Yale, implemented this award. Tom, a former Pitt baseball player, received this award in 1993.
