Former Pitt women's basketball star Shavonte Zellous has been keeping busy. And over the weekend, she helped the Indiana Fever win the WNBA championship. Zellous was a bit part of their run in the playoffs and not only was a member of the team, but played a key role.
Her heroics started by hitting a game-winning jump shot in the conference finals to help the Fever reach the championship series. She then scored 30 points in the pivotal Game 3 of the five-game series before adding 15 more in the final on Sunday. For the series, Zellous averaged 17 points and a handful of rebounds and assists - that was compared to scoring only 7.5 points per game during the regular season.
Starting for the team, she also averaged about 35 minutes in each game of the finals. Only in her third season, Zellous appears to have a bright future in the league.
