Is Pitt better off without Steven Adams?

Are the Pittsburgh Panthers better off without their former center Steven Adams? There is a growing sentiment that the Pittsburgh Panthers are better off without Steven Adams, a Big East All-Rookie Selection just one year ago. Personally, I don't give much credence to this kind of conjecture, but of course I am a hypocrite, hence, I am writing an article about it. The one anecdotal...

Adams Goes 12th Overall To Thunder

Pitt's Steven Adams is the first Panther selected in the first round since the Golden State Warriors selected Vonteego Cummings in 1999. Adams has a great opportunity where he will be mentored by one of the premier players in the game in Oklahoma City, Kevin Durant.

Thunder select Pittsburgh's Adams with 12th pick

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma City went with some much-needed size with its first pick of the NBA draft. The Thunder selected Pittsburgh center Steven Adams with the 12th pick on Thursday night, hoping to add a complementary piece to play alongside stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. The 7-foot Adams played just one season for the Panthers, averaging 7.2 points and 6.3 points...

Steven Adams in the Lottery

This is not a strong draft. If you have been following the NBA draft chatter since April, you have been hearing this. Expect to hear plenty more of it in the next 36 hours (leading up to and after the draft). As such, Steven Adams is sitting at the end of the lottery. Most projections have him going anywhere from 7 to 14. 10-12 being the most reasonable zone. Depending on who you...

2016 guard Maverick Rowan commits to Pitt basketball

So, Pitt hasn't traditionally gotten super early commitments from guys. Steven Adams got in early, but as we saw with Chandler Kincade on the football side, they don't always work out. But Jamie Dixon may have gotten a significant find in local guard Maverick Rowan. Rowan committed to the Panthers, but there's only one thing ... it's for 2016. In case your math is...

Panthers regrouping after loss of Adams, Zeigler

Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon says he understands why freshman center Steven Adams is heading to the NBA even if he remains a raw talent. Adams announced Tuesday he would make himself eligible for the draft and plans to sign with an agent. Dixon said Wednesday there were strong family considerations that Adams took into account before making the decision. The 7-footer from New Zealand...

Pitt's Steven Adams going pro, Zeigler to transfer

It's one and done for Pittsburgh center Steven Adams and guard Trey Zeigler. Adams, the 7-foot freshman from New Zealand, said Tuesday he plans to sign with an agent and enter the NBA Draft. Zeigler, a 6-5 junior, announced earlier in the day he was transferring after spending just one season in the program. The departures could make the Panthers' move to the ACC a bumpy...

Panthers' promising season ends on familiar note

Jamie Dixon insists he's not going anywhere. The same goes for Steven Adams. After another March disappointment for Pitt, it's a start. The Panthers (24-9) bounced back from a miserable 2011-12 season to get back into the thick of the Big East, but the rousing send-off Dixon and company had in mind before moving to the ACC never materialized. Pitt rallied from a slow start...

Debating Steven Adams

I know it is common in just about every city, but I am not a big fan of the cross-media thing. Where a local columnist also does the radio show. (And by that, I mean, my general problem not specific to a particular guy.) Not because his work suffers or because he isn’t particularly good. It bothers me because every column written takes on an undertone of preparing for a topic on...

Pittsburgh 89, Bethune-Cookman 40

J.J. Moore had 18 points for the Panthers (10-1) and was 8 of 12 from the field. Talib Zanna and Lamar Patterson also put 11 points on the board each as Pitt connected on 67...
