Last week Pitt Live Wire brought you a Q&A with former Pitt women's basketball star Shavonte Zellous. Zellous was the Panthers first-ever WNBA draft pick, going 11th overall in the first round. On Monday night, Zellous hit the game-winning shot to tie up the series for the Indiana Fever against the Connecticut Sun. 


Shavonte Zellous is one of the most recognizable names in Pitt basketball history. The third-leading scorer in Panthers history, Zellous compiled 2,251 points over her illustrious collegiate career. The athletic guard and three-time All-Big East first team honoree is ranked statistically in nearly every category in the Pitt women's basketball record book.

The No. 11 overall selection in the 2009 WNBA Draft has enjoyed a successful career in both the WNBA and overseas.  She averaged 18.6 points for Turkish league club Mersin BSB last season and re-signed with the squad in July.

Zellous averaged 7.5 points and 2.7 rebounds for the Indiana Fever this summer, while earning a start in all 31 regular season games.  The Fever are currently battling the Atlanta Dream in the Eastern Conference semifinal series with game three in the series slated for Tuesday in Indianapolis.  Zellous had 15 points on Sunday to help lead the Fever to a 103-88 win and even the best-of-three series at a game apiece.

We caught up with Zellous for a chat after a Fever practice to see what the former Panther great has been up to.
