On Tuesday, Pitt picked up another guard to bolster its back court for next season, adding former Marquette guard Greg Elliott.
Elliott is a 6-foot-3 guard who played four seasons for the Golden Eagles. This season, he averaged seven points per game as a senior and shot 39% from three-point range on a career-high 3.1 three-point attempts per game. Elliott’s addition will bolster Pitt’s back court with more veteran experience and will certainly provide much-needed shooting on the outside. In his career, he has played in over 110 games, scoring more than 640 points and hitting 94 threes.
At Marquette, Elliott was coached by Pitt’s Assistant AD of Scouting Jake Presutti, who was, at the time, an assistant coach there.
The Panthers have now added six players this offseason: Elliott, Jorge and Guillermo Diaz-Graham, Nelly Cummings, Blake Hinson, and Fede Federiko. Guards Jamarius Burton and Nike Sibande will be returning, as well as star big John Hugley. They still have two spots to fill, but now have a much more complete roster than at the beginning of the offseason.
