I didn't get this done as early as I wanted, but the weekly Pitt feature over at SB Nation Pittsburgh is a top ten moments from the 2010-11 basketball season (well, actually 11).

Here's a preview - head on over to see the full list:

11. J.J. Moore's big night. Yes, it was against North Florida. Yes, it was a blowout game. But Moore still showed off his scoring potential. In only 19 minutes, he led the team with 19 points and eight rebounds. His playing time decreased significantly in conference play, but that game gave fans plenty of reasons to think he can be a big contributor in 2011-12.

10. Home win over UConn. Sure, Pitt was expected to win the game, but a win over UConn is always worth celebrating. Plus we all saw by the end of the season just how good the Huskies were. The big 15-point win was the perfect end to the Christmas holiday.

9. In losses, Ashton Gibbs sets career scoring highs. Despite the fact that Pitt lost both games, we got yet another glimpse of just how good Gibbs was in contests against St. John's and UConn. Gibbs posted a new career high with 26 points against the Johnnies in February, then broke that record with 27 against UConn less than a month later in the Big East Tournament.

8. Talib Zanna caps impressive start with double-double at Madison Square Garden. It was hard to know what to expect from redshirt freshman Talib Zanna this season, but in the first four games, he proved he had the capability to contribute right away. Over that span, Zanna averaged nearly a double-double (9.5 points / 9.3 rebounds). In the fourth game playing under the bright lights of Madison Square Garden against Maryland, Zanna put together a 14-point, 12-rebound effort in helping lead Pitt to the 2K Sports Classic Championship against Texas.
