Former Pitt Sharpshooter Greg Elliott Sings Pro Contract with Team in Denmark



Greg Elliott

Months after wrapping up a successful first season with Pitt, wing Greg Elliott has signed a professional contract to continue playing hoops.

Elliott signed with the Svendborg Rabbits, a team based in Svendborg. The Rabbits compete in Basketligaen, which is known as the top professional basketball league in Denmark.

Last year, the Rabbits finished 14-16. They had two Americans on the roster last year — Hameir Wright (Washington/North Texas), Jaedon Willis (Chowan University).

Elliott, a 6-foot-3 guard, shined in a wing role for the Panthers this season. The Detroit native started 36 games, scoring 10.4 points per game and hitting 2.1 threes per game. Elliott hit 42% of his three-point attempts, filling a crucial role for Jeff Capel’s squad that advanced to the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament.

Elliott spent the first four years of his career at Marquette, playing 114 games for the Golden Eagles but struggling to reach his full potential due to injuries. With a fresh start at Pitt, Elliott shined alongside fellow veterans Nelly Cummings and Jamarius Burton in the back court. Elliott (Denmark), Burton (Belgium), and Cummings (Cyprus) have now all signed professional contracts for this upcoming season.
