What’s Subsequent for Pitt Basketball



The school basketball season formally ended for the Pitt Panthers on Sunday, following their 84-73 loss to No. 3 Xavier.

Disappointment at all times follows a loss however while you take a look at the large image, the one strategy to consider this season is to name it successful.

The Panthers completed the season with a file of 24-12, which was their greatest mark since 2013-14. They had been capable of go 14-6 within the ACC and in addition choose up two NCAA Event wins.

Perhaps the largest accomplishment is that this group of gamers had been capable of re-ignite a fan base that had little or no curiosity in Pitt basketball for the previous seven seasons.

The important thing and possibly the larger activity for Jeff Capel is to see whether or not or not this profitable may be sustained, which is able to really present whether or not or not Pitt basketball is again.

Profitable in a selected season is one factor, however having the ability to maintain that success in consecutive seasons to point out this system is again is fully one other.

Pitt will little doubt be returning some strong items for the 2023-24 season, however they’ll even be dropping a bunch of necessary items to their success.

Not solely had been Nelly Cummings, Jamarius Burton, Nike Sibande and Greg Elliott productive gamers on the court docket, however they had been additionally the veteran leaders and the glue of the workforce. That’s essential and one thing that may little doubt have to be changed.

When it comes to on the court docket manufacturing, Pitt is dropping a ton:

Nelly Cummings: 1,500+ factors, 380+ assists and a member of three NCAA event groups.

Greg Elliott: 1,000+ factors, 380+ rebounds, 170+ 3 pointers.

Nike Sibande: 1,800+ factors, 670+ rebounds.

Jamarius Burton: 1,500+ factors, 470+ assists. 

There’s no strategy to sugarcoat it. Making an attempt to exchange these 4 gamers’ manufacturing shall be troublesome, however Pitt not solely has just a few proficient gamers returning however their Class of 2023 has a few gamers that would contribute instantly.

As issues stand at the moment, right here’s a take a look at the gamers which might be scheduled to return subsequent season for Pitt. Within the switch portal period, it’s at all times essential to say ‘gamers which might be scheduled to return’ since you by no means know what is going to occur between now and the beginning of follow within the fall.

Pitt’s 2023-24 Roster

Guillermo Diaz-Graham, F
Jorge Diaz-Graham, F
Blake Hinson, F
Federiko Federiko, C
Will Jeffress, F
Dior Johnson, G
Nate Santos, G
Jaland Lowe, G
Carlton Carrington, G
Marlon Barnes, F

2023-24 Wants

With the latest departure of John Hugley, Pitt presently has three scholarships obtainable for subsequent season. Wanting on the present roster and what positions the teaching employees may very well be seeking to recruit within the switch portal, I’d guess {that a} huge man that may rebound and defend shall be necessary. After that, Pitt needs to be seeking to refill the roster with a 3-point shooter or two.

Two different necessary low season developments shall be for the energy employees to work with the Diaz-Graham twins and Federiko so as to add weight and energy to their body. If that may be achieved and contemplating the expertise they already possess, you’re doubtlessly three dominant gamers. Arguably the largest low season mission is to arrange Dior Johnson each bodily and mentally to be prepared to steer this squad. Pitt success this season was predicated totally on the manufacturing and management of the 4 veterans: Cummings, Burton, Sibande and Elliott. Subsequent season, they’ll want the younger expertise to step up and that may begin with Johnson. The expertise is clearly there however will he have the ability to translate that to the court docket and extra importantly, can he be somebody that Capel and the remainder of the workforce depends on?
