A Pitt Team IN the Sweet 16


Avenging their fallen male counterparts, Pitt's women's team advanced to the Sweet 16 on Monday night with a 67-59 upset of 3-seed Baylor in Albuquerque, NM. Guard Shavonte Zellous led the way with 19 points and 6 rebounds, while teammate Marcedes Walker (shown above) added 17 and 9.
It's the biggest win in the women's program's history and a nice story for a campus undoubtedly bummed about Saturday night's men's result.
Next up, Pitt will face the Stanford-UTEP winner next week in Spokane. Dare I say an Elite Eight spot is on the line?

Congrats to the Pitt women.

You know, if The Weather Channel is off the air whenever the next game it to be played, maybe I'll tune in.

Will that be on ESPN7 or 8?
