The Pitt women’s basketball team worked its way to the Sweet 16 for the first time in school history. The Panthers stunned Baylor University with a 67-59 victory in the NCAA Tournament second round on March 24. Led by Shavonte Zellous (above), a former track sprinter turned shooting guard, the Panthers climbed from a 28-26 halftime deficit to a 52-41 lead midway through the second half, and held on.

The Panthers exited the tournament in the regional round after a loss Saturday to Stanford University in Spokane, Wash.
