We got this update from the Pitt Athletic Dept. on the goings on of the women's basketball team:
ATHENS, Greece — The Pitt women’s basketball team concluded its games against European teams Thursday night with an 84-66 loss to the Greek Senior National team.
The Panthers were led by seniors Xenia Stewart and Shavonte Zellous with 18 and 15 points respectively. Sophomore Taneisha Harrison had a hot hand, as well, with 16 points and five rebounds on the night. Stewart added a team-high 15 rebounds and three steals.
The Greek Senior National team, preparing for the European championships, shot an impressive 27 of 50 from the field and was 8 of 15 from three-point range. Pitt outrebounded the team from Greece, however, with 40 to their 33.
Pitt defeated Italy’s Palestrina team, 87-46, and fell to the Greek Senior National team twice – 76-70 and 84-66 during the European tour. The Panthers team and staff will continue touring Greece until their return trip to the United States on Monday.
