The Pitt basketball program has added another WPIAL product to this year’s roster, this time being Vason Stevenson, the former Montour standout.
Stevenson is a 6-foot-3 freshman who starred for the Spartans over the last four years. The McKees Rocks native dropped 23 points (11-for-16 FG) and eight rebounds in a close matchup against Quaker Valley in the Petersen Events Center last spring.
I’m down on the floor getting some video for the 4A final. What an atmosphere! Here is what it looked like when Montour took the lead with about 5 min left. QV is back ahead now 48-47 with 3:47 left. @timesscores pic.twitter.com/aZ51OIpIFm

Stevenson is the son of Ron “Dunk-a-tron-Ron” Stevenson, who was a star 6-foot-6 center for Duquesne back in the 1980s.
The Panthers have added two new walk-ons to this year’s team, with KJ Marshall returning to the program and now Stevenson joining. Noah Jackson, a freshman walk-on on last year’s team, is no longer on the roster.
