Zellous' 34 Leads Pitt Women Over WVU

The Pitt women, ranked #19 (AP) / #22 (ESPN/USA Today), continued the school's dominance over West Virginia with a nine-point win at the Pete on Sunday. Before we get back to Zellous, a well-deserved 'congratulations' to Coach Berenato for her 100th win at Pitt. While many might not care, she brought a dead program to national prominence.

Zellous led the Panthers with a 34-point effort. Not sure what her WNBA draft stock is like, but you'd imagine she'd be seen as a high-round draft pick. She gets a nice article from Mechelle Voepel at ESPN talking about how she wasn't highly recruited:

"Only one Division I college had expressed any desire to bring in Shavonte Zellous when she was in high school in Orlando, Fla. It was in the spring of her senior year, and she figured maybe that's where she was headed: South Carolina State.

Then again, maybe not. She wasn't sure what was going to happen. Most of her fellow seniors across the nation by then had long since made their college plans. Zellous, a 5-foot-11 guard, had been the MVP of her state high school hoops tournament. She was also a track standout. But it didn't seem as if any college was really all that interested in her."
