Gallery: Senior Day for Pitt Women’s Basketball

PITTSBURGH — Pitt honored three players during its women’s basketball senior day on Sunday.

Sixth-year guard Aysia Bugg is the lone senior on the Panthers’ roster. Bugg fought through a knee injury and blood clots to return for a sixth season, but did not play on Sunday with a knee injury.

In her career, Bugg has 954 points and 354 assists. She’s 46 points shy of becoming the 20th Pitt player to score 1,000. Pitt has two regular-season and at least on ACC Tournament game remaining.

Pitt also honored former player Alayna Gribble, who retired during the 2017-18 season after suffering a concussion. A Pittsburgh native and Norwin alum, Gribble scored 371 points and shot 34% from 3-point range in her Pitt career.

The Panthers also honored a member of the opposition on Sunday. After receiving her own framed jersey, Bugg presented former Pitt wing Yacine Diop with one of her Pitt jerseys. Also a sixth-year senior, Diop transferred to Louisville in 2018 after graduating from Pitt.

A native of Senegal and Seton La-Salle graduate, Diop scored 1,093 points and grabbed 583 rebounds in her three-year Pitt career.
