PREVIEW: MEN’S TEAM PREVIEW: EXPERIENCED CORE CAN ONLY GO UP FROM 2017 LEADS WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Trent Leonard

“But the main thing I will say is that Pitt did Dominic Campbell well. We did well.” Sports Editor Staff Writer While Capel remained purposely vague When the final buzzer sounded in the 68-46 Last season was branded as a rebuilding year for the Pitt men’s basketball team.

This solidified the notion that these coach with a victory. “I’ve told all the players I want them to prove graduated after new head coach Kevin Stall- two first-year guards will carry much of the ings’ mediocre first year. The new-look Pan- offensive burden this season, regardless of what they’re capable of doing,” head coach Lance thers — composed primarily of junior college and first-year transfer students — were supposed to struggle, but the idea was that their young players would get invaluable experience for the future. Instead, 2017 ended up more of a lost year than a rebuilding year. After senior leader Ryan Luther suffered a season-ending injury early on, the young Panthers struggled to compete and finished 0-18 in the ACC — the first time in program history that Pitt failed to win a division game. Then, roughly half the team’s production disbanded after the season — Luther departed for Arizona, firstyear guards Marcus Carr and Parker Stewart transferred elsewhere and Stallings was fired. At that point, it looked like the outlook for 2018 would again be bleak. Luckily, athletic director Heather Lyke made the home-run hire of Jeff Capel — former head coach at VCU and Oklahoma, then most recently Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s right-hand man at Duke — in late March. Capel convinced five of Pitt’s eight players who requested releases to return, then went out and added highly touted guard recruits Trey McGowens, Xavier Johnson and Au’Diese Toney in the offseason.

ACC with only one NCAA tournament appearance in her five years as head coach. White spent the last 15 years in the Florida State women’s basketball program, working his first nine seasons as an assistant coach and the last six as associate head coach. Pitt is coming off a tough year last season. The Panthers went 10-20 overall and 2-15 in ACC play. Of their 20 loses, four games were by a deficit of more than 20 points and three by more than 30. The Panthers are also going to be missing an integral part of their team this season — Yacine Diop, the most important offensive player for Pitt last season. She led the team in points and shots taken, averaging 15.7 points per game and taking 200 more shots than the next player. To top it all off, Diop transferred to play her final season at Louisville — Pitt’s conference rival. But the outlook for Pitt isn’t all that bleak. There are some positives coming into this season — excluding Diop and Maguette Sol, every player from last year is returning, including five seniors. “I think [the seniors] are a group that has been through the wars and understands how hard you have to play at this level,” White said. “Now as someone new comes in, they are the ones who have to set the tone for practice and now as we go into games they have to be the leadership that changes who we are.” Those five seniors are forwards Danielle Garven and Kauai Bradley, guards Cassidy Walsh and redshirt senior Aysia Bugg, as well as center Kalista Walters. Bradley appeared in all 30 games last year and is a good defensive player, while Garven will be looking to make her impact offensively with her good mid-range game. Walsh will serve as a leader off the bench and can make the occasional 3-pointer every now and then as 15 of her 23 shots made last year were from the 3-point line. Bugg and Walters will both likely have the biggest impact going into this season. Bugg missed all of her senior season last year due to injury, but was given a medical redshirt, allowing her to play this season. Over her collegiate career, Bugg has started almost every game for the Panthers since her first season. Her junior year, Bugg led the team in assists averaging 3.4 per game. Walters started all 30 games last season, See Women’s Preview on page 9

Ellison ready to lead, despite hiatus Tessa Sayers

Assistant Sports Editor It’s been 606 days since Pitt men’s basketball captain Malik Ellison played in his last official basketball game — a 108-67 loss to Villanova in the 2017 Big East Tournament. Ellison was 2-6 from the field and 0-3 on 3-point attempts, finishing the day with four points for St. John’s — the university he attended before transferring to Pitt the summer going into his junior year. Due to NCAA rules, Ellison had to sit out last season. Tuesday will be his first game in more than a year and a half, but he isn’t nervous. In fact, he’s more confident than ever. “Being able to sit out last year and see the different things … how different teams play and this and that,” Ellison said. “I’ve been able to prepare myself well … my confidence is at an all-time high right now.” That confidence was visible last Thursday in the Panthers’ exhibition game against PittJohnstown. Ellison tied for the team lead with 14 points, going 6-11 from the field, 1-3 on 3-point attempts and grabbing four rebounds and two steals. While Thursday was his first time playing a game for Pitt, Ellison doesn’t count the exhibition as his first game back. His focus is on Tuesday, his first regular season game for the Panthers. “I think next Tuesday will probably be more of a debut for me,” Ellison said. “Obviously Thursday doesn’t count, but I think next Tuesday will be the debut.” Ellison’s redshirt junior season almost didn’t happen at Pitt. He was one of the eight players to request a transfer after previous head coach Kevin Stallings was fired in May. But after meeting with head coach Jeff Capel, Ellison decided to stay on the team. A couple months later, he was named captain. “He’s a really good athlete,” Capel said. “He’s a guy who competes and he’s a guy who I think for us will be very versatile.” Ellison is going be thrown into a new role this season. With the Panthers lacking in size, Ellison and teammate Jared Wilson-Frame will both see time at the power forward position. That is mostly what they have been working on this offseason. “On offense the way we play, having four guards on the floor is something that is really advantageous,” Wilson-Frame said. “It’s a style of play we want to play with, especially because of our lack of size. Me and Malik will probably be playing a lot at that four-guard spot.” Wilson-Frame wasn’t surprised when Ellison was named

pittnews.com

captain. In fact, he credits Ellison with giving him a sense of urgency when it came to his workouts this offseason. When Wilson-Frame came back to campus in May to start workouts, one of the first things he saw was Ellison in the weight room. He knew at that moment he needed to step up. “I walked in and saw Malik and Kene in the weight room the first day I came here,” Wilson-Frame said. “It was their first day back, too, and that gave me a little bit of a sense of urgency before I really even took in the fact that I am a senior.”

Redshirt junior guard Malik Ellison was named team captain and was said to be “[a] gym rat with a high level of professionalism around his approach to the game” according to Pitt Athletics. Anna Bongardino | visual editor Even though he didn’t have the title of captain at the time, he always felt like a leader of the team and saw the role as something he aspired to achieve. “It’s been great,” Ellison said. “I mean I really embraced the role. I’ve always wanted to be a captain, especially at this level.” Even last year, when Ellison was new to the team and

November 5, 2018

couldn’t play, he always stepped up wherever he could, whether it was by encouraging his teammates in games and practices or by working harder in the weight room. According to Wilson-Frame, Ellison has always been vocal and led by example. Ellison is a player his teammates never have to question. They count on him to be in the right place and ready to make the right plays. “That’s just who he is every day,” Wilson-Frame said. “He does the right thing on and off the court, he goes really hard and he’s one of those guys who you never really have to check him. He’s doing a great job.” Being a captain under Capel isn’t an easy task. Capel demands toughness. “Coach Capel recruited the guys he did for a reason and even the returners, they’ve learned it,” Ellison said. “But in order to win at this level, you’ve got to be tough. You’ve got to bring it each and every day.” In addition to helping his teammates embrace the toughness, Ellison is also tasked with helping them learn and transition to a new offense — one that is much more uptempo from what fans would have seen at a men’s basketball game last year. Last year, under Stallings, the team focused on slowing things down and running sets in the half-court offense. This year, Capel is asking his players to transition and run. While Ellison gives his first-year teammates a lot of credit and is proud of how they’ve handled the change, he’s also prepared to help them through the difficult times. “I think they’ll handle it well as long as they learn they’re going to hit adversity, but as long as you bounce back and get through it, you’re going to be successful,” Ellison said. “They’re very talented and I’m very excited for them.” Ellison is also excited for the team as a whole. Out of the 15 players on the team, only a handful of them have played on the court together at once. But even without having that experience, the Panthers have meshed well and competed skillfully not only in the exhibition, but also in a “secret scrimmage” against Dayton University on Oct. 27. As long as the team builds off those successes, Ellison is confident there will be more from where that came from. This Tuesday will be Ellison’s first regular season game seeing time as a Panther. It will be the first time he gets to lead his team out of the tunnel and into the Zoo era. It may have been 606 days since Ellison played his last regular season basketball game, but he’s ready. “I’ve been playing basketball for so long and I know all the hard work I’ve put in and I’m an older guy now and I have experience,” Ellison said. “So I just want to get out there and play.”

Danielle Garven, a constant amid change Tessa Sayers

Assistant Sports Editor It was Danielle Garven’s first practice with Pitt after transferring from Chipola College for her junior year in 2017. Garven was sitting on the sidelines, waiting to hear that her transfer papers had gone through so she could officially start practicing. By the time former coach Suzie McConnell-Serio walked up to Garven and told her she was officially a Panther, practice had already started, but Garven didn’t care. Without stretching or warming up, Garven got off the bench, sprinted down the court, joined the team in their drill and started talking — making an immediate impact on her teammates. “She just kind of jumped right in,” senior guard Cassidy Walsh said. “She had never played with any of us and I think that kind of just woke everybody up like, ‘Wow this girl is ready to go.’ Her energy and talking to everybody was impressive.” After McConnell-Serio was fired on April 5, Garven wasn’t sure if she would stay or request a transfer. She was leaning toward staying because she had already transferred schools twice before and didn’t really want to again. Plus she liked playing for Pitt and didn’t want to leave her teammates. “I only had one more year so I didn’t want to transfer again,” Garven said. “So I was like, ‘OK I’m going to stick around and make the best out of this year.’” Then, she started hearing reports of new head coach Lance White. Everything she heard about him was positive. So it was settled — she would stay. White felt the same about Garven coming into his new coaching position. Before he was named head coach at Pitt, White had scouted Garven. His first impression of her was that she was a great athlete, did a nice job in the mid-range and was a great defender. But once he got here, he realized Garven was more than just a good player. She was a hard worker. “Once I got to Pitt I was stunned at just how hard she worked,” White said. “Every day in practice she comes to work. From the moment I got here and got going with them, she was the one who set the pace and tone for how hard you have to work.” Garven sets the tone and the pace in two ways, White said — with her work ethic and with her

voice. White considers Garven the hardest worker on the team. And when her teammates are around her and see how hard she works, they’re encouraged to bring that same energy and try and work as hard as she does. Garven also isn’t afraid to speak up. If someone

with some help from her teammates. “My teammates have definitely assisted me in that,” Garven said. “If they see me slacking they are always on me about doing this and doing that. They are always helping me keep that focus as well.” Physically, Garven didn’t change much about her game this off season — the only major change was that she started taking more reps. The changes she made this summer were evident at the women’s basketball exhibition game against Gannon University on Tuesday. Garven led both teams with 20 points and had nine of Pitt’s 42 rebounds. That attitude has not only made Garven a better player, but it has also made her someone her teammates want to play with. “She has just been able to get me going,” Walsh said. “Her energy and her enthusiasm, especially when she gets a stop on defense or she gets a rebound, she starts clapping really hard, she just gets us going.” She also brings her energy to practice. Stepping up into a leadership role this year, Garven has made sure every practice is a good one. If things aren’t going well, she is the one who picks her teammates up. “Whenever we have to get a bucket or we have to get a stop in practice, she is the one who demands it of her teammates,” White said. “Whether it is her going to make the play or her making her team win. That’s the thing that sticks out the most to me is just what a competitor she is.” Garven isn’t where she thought she would end up her first year year of college. Transferring twice and getting a new head coach the summer before her senior year isn’t quite how she thought her career go. While she is happy with where she ended, she wishes she would have known it would all work Then-junior Danielle Garven takes a shot during a out. game against the Syracuse Orange in February. “Just knowing that there is a light at the end of Thomas Yang| assistant visual editor the tunnel would have been a motivational piece for me,” Garven said. Four years later, Garven is happy her path isn’t working as hard as they should be, she lets brought her to Pitt, and she is happy she decided to them know. “With her voice, she really sets the energy for the stay. Now she and her teammates are ready to see what this season has to offer. team,” White said. “She’s playing so free and I don’t think she’s even Going into her senior season, Garven told herself she was going to approach each day differently thinking out there,” Walsh said. “I think she’s just and work harder than ever. She believes if she works playing a game she loves … I have full confidence in hard enough, everything else will fall into place. So her and I am so excited to be able to play with her far she has been able to follow through with that for my last year.”

Men’s Preview, pg. 3 offense from a defensive rebound that can push the break and do things like that.” For Pitt, pushing the pace is more of a necessity than a choice — the Panthers only have one player, sophomore center Terrell Brown, taller than 6-foot-9. To succeed, they’ll have to turn their biggest weakness — lack of height — into a strength, using their athleticism to beat opponents down the court. “There are some positions, if you go by the traditional sense of position, that we just don’t have right now,” Capel said. “And so the thing I believe in basketball is you have to find a way to get your five best guys on the court, regardless of position.” In the Panthers’ exhibition game against Pitt-Johnstown Thursday night, fans got a glimpse of those “five best guys” when Capel trotted out the starting lineup of Johnson, McGowens, Brown, sophomore guard Khameron Davis and redshirt junior guard Malik Ellison. Of those five, only two — Davis and Brown — saw court time for Pitt last year. Ellison — named captain of the team — will look to

lead the Panthers despite sitting out all last season due to NCAA rules after transferring from St. John’s University. The 6-foot-6 guard impressed in his first semi-official court time against Pitt-Johnstown, leading the team with 28 minutes played and tying with Johnson and senior forward Jared Wilson-Frame for the team lead in points (14) and steals (3). Other Panthers to watch this season include graduate transfer Sidy N’Dir, who went to two NCAA Tournaments as a player at New Mexico State and quietly led Pitt with six assists Thursday night. Toney, a tall 6-foot-6 guard and four-star recruit, figures to give the team solid playmaking ability off the bench along with 6-foot-9 junior forward Kene Chukwuka — a returning contributor from 2017 — who led Pitt with six rebounds in the exhibition. As a team, the Panthers flashed the fast-paced potential that they alluded to in the offseason, forcing 21 turnovers and scoring 23 points off those turnovers, including 21 fast-break points. Pitt also showed a willingness — and ability — to shoot from beyond the arc, making nine of 25 3-pointers. The Panthers dominated the Division II Mountain Cats, beating them 78-59, but the exhibition showed a difference

November 5, 2018

in this year’s fan base as much as the team on the court. The announced attendance of 3,194 people marked more than 10 regular-season games last season. Fans are obviously excited at the proposition of seeing a new culture under a reputable new coach with talented new recruits. But realistically, Pitt will finish toward the bottom of the ACC standings. They were voted to come in dead last by the ACC preseason poll, along with most other media outlets. That being said, it’s perfectly possible that they leapfrog some of the other projected cellar-dwellers such as Clemson, Boston College and NC State. Pitt has an athletic and well-coached — albeit inexperienced and undersized — roster, and they should be expected to play competitive games with most other ACC teams. Even if the Panthers only win one ACC game this season, it will still be an improvement over last year. That’s the beauty of this year’s Pitt team — it can only go up from the disaster that was 2017. Unlike last season, the fans will cheer — not boo — when the coach is announced, and the Oakland Zoo should once again become a boisterous force in the stands.

Panthers to push pace under Capel

Stephen Thompson Staff Writer

When Pitt hired Jeff Capel as the new head coach of its men’s basketball team last March, you would have been hardpressed to find anyone at Pitt, from the fans to former players, who disapproved of the hire. The least enthusiastic reaction probably came from former Pitt forward Gilbert Brown, who described the new hire as “not bad.” His ability as a recruiter undoubtedly drives his reputation as a coach, but if fans questioned anything, it was whether or not he will turn high-powered recruits into wins. Capel isn’t unfamiliar with leading a program. At 27 years old, Capel was the youngest head coach in Division I basketball when he got promoted to the head coaching job at Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002. Capel led one of VCU’s most successful runs ever in his four years in Richmond. The Rams recorded a school record for wins (74) and the highest winning percentage (.658) of any program in the state of Virginia during his tenure. He made his first move to a Power Five conference when he accepted the head coaching job at Oklahoma in 2006. He was put at a disadvantage, as three players who had made up a top five recruiting class under the previous coach departed. Capel’s first two years were underwhelming, even with the signing of McDonald’s All-American and future NBA star Blake Griffin. Capel really made noise in his third year as a head coach. The Sooners went 30-6 and earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament before falling in the Elite Eight to North Carolina. Things went downhill at Oklahoma during Capel’s remaining two seasons in Norman. The Sooners won a combined 25 games — 13 of which were vacated from the 2010 season due to the use of an ineligible player. Attendance dropped, players left the program and an NCAA investigation regarding the recruiting tactics of former assistant coach Oronde Taliaferro hung a dark cloud over the program. While Capel was not implicated in the

pittnews.com

Head coach Jeff Capel spoke about his previous qualifications and excitement to begin working with the men’s basketball team in the 2018-19 season at a press conference in March. Mackenzie Rodrigues | contributing editor investigation, he couldn’t overcome the negativity surrounding his program. After consecutive losing seasons and a lack of promising recruits, the administration decided to move on and fully invest in a rebuild. Capel then found himself at Duke, as an assistant for his former head coach Mike Krzyzewski. In his five years there, he became Coach K’s primary assistant and had some experience filling in at the head coaching spot when Coach K was sick. However, trying to revive a Pitt program that essentially hit rock bottom is a completely different animal than coaching at Duke. Capel will have to be a complete coach — recruiting, drawing up the X’s and O’s and energizing the fan base — before Pitt can return to the kind of consistent success it enjoyed during the last decade.

As far as actual in-game coaching goes, Capel will attempt to combine the old with the new, honoring the style that made Pitt successful in the past while keeping pace with basketball’s evolving trends. In an Oct. 30 press conference, Capel emphasized something that has been tenet of Pitt basketball since before the turn of the century — toughness. “There are things I hope we do well,” Capel said, “which are play hard and compete and fight every second we are out there, every guy doing that together … there has to be a toughness about us every time we are out there.” Toughness is typically a cliche of coach-speak, but for the Panthers it will need to become a hallmark if they are to compete this season, especially in the ACC. Pitt’s roster is undersized and will often be overmatched from a talent per-

November 5, 2018

spective, so they will need to be cohesive, gritty and smart. Team rebounding and team defense — in addition to forcing and capitalizing on turnovers — will be key. For what Pitt lacks in experience, talent and size, it can make up for with its athleticism. Pitt has multiple newcomers who will really turn heads with their speed and ability to play above the rim — an aspect that the 2017 squad lacked. Capel and his new coaching staff stressed strength and stamina, so they began to push the players harder in practice and workouts. Senior guard Jared WilsonFrame is a perfect example of the impact that the new coaching staff has made, losing 26 pounds since last spring. His teammate, sophomore Peace Ilegomah, has lost 37 pounds. “We are not a big team,” said Capel, “so a lot of times the other team we are playing against can be and will be bigger than us. So we have to figure out how to use quickness, intelligence, togetherness and toughness to our advantage.” Capel wants his Pitt teams to play in the same mold of his teams at Oklahoma — force turnovers, get out in transition and play fast. The Panthers definitely have the speed and explosiveness they need, whether it comes naturally from first-year players Xavier Johnson and Trey McGowens or is developed by guys like Ilegomah and Wilson-Frame. It’s up to coach Capel to utilize and build upon his roster’s athleticism. The Panthers’ exhibition game against PittJohnstown was an early indicator — albeit against a Division II opponent — that they can succeed playing that way. The Panthers took 25 3-pointers, already outpacing their season average from a year ago, which ranked 88th in the country. They also forced 21 turnovers and scored 20 of their 78 points off of those turnovers. Early returns show promise for coach Capel and for Pitt basketball, but the real results have yet to be seen. This team has a lot to prove — and while most of Capel’s public comments seem like nothing more than preseason coach-speak, they show how things will look on the court for Pitt in 2018.

Women’s Preview, pg. 3 averaging one block and 0.9 steals per game. She proved to be the option down low for the Panthers, averaging 9.8 points per game and shooting 51 percent from the field. Other non-senior players who will likely make an impact are junior guards Jasmine Whitney and Alayna Gribble. Whitney was thrust into the starting point guard position when Bugg was injured, and she ended up starting all 30 games last year. She led the team in assists with 4.6 per game and was third in scoring behind Diop and Walters, averaging 7.4 points per game. Whitney proved herself down the stretch, scoring more than 10 points in seven out of her last nine games and was named captain by McConnell-Serio. Gribble was the best 3-point shooter on the team last season. While an injury caused her to miss about seven games, she was still able to make into Pitt’s top 10 3-point shooters, sitting at 88 career 3-pointers made. In a game against Georgia Tech last season, she tied the most 3-pointers in a game in program history with seven, which she had also done the season before at Syracuse. In that game against the Yellow Jackets, she also scored 29 points, which was the most

for a Panther last season. Last season she also shot 37 percent from the 3-point line. Despite its lack of size, the 2018-19 recruiting class looks to be a good one. The three recruits, all listed as point guards, are Ismini Prapa, Tehya Lyons and Jahsyni Knight. Prapa and Lyons both have 90 ratings and are jointly ranked as the No. 27 point guard in the 2018 class. Knight has a 92 rating, was the no. 24 point guard in the class and was in the ESPN Top 100 as well. We will have to wait and see if any of these players get any meaningful playing time this season, but Prapa did see time in the exhibition game against Gannon, scoring four points in six minutes of action. The schedule for the Panthers looks to be a difficult one. The non-conference schedule will clearly be the easier part of the schedule with only one team, UCF, finishing in the RPI top 50 last year. Some difficult teams include West Virginia, which made the WNIT and lost in the final, as well as mid-major teams like St. Francis (Pennsylvania), Duquesne and Fordham, who all won more than 20 games last season. The real test for Pitt will be in its ACC conference schedule. The ACC is one of, if not the best conferences for women’s college basketball.
