Pitt lands high-ranked recruit

| Wednesday, October 12, 2005 12:00 a.m

Selena Nwude, the No. 14-ranked women’s basketball player in the country by Full Court Press, will play basketball at Pitt.

Nwude, a 6-foot-5 center from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt Md., made a verbal commitment to the Panthers. She chose Pitt over Florida and Virginia. Nwude averaged 16 points, 12 rebounds and nine blocked shots per game last season.

She is the second player from Maryland to commit to the Panthers for the 2006-07 season. Ashleigh Braxton, a 5-10 senior guard from Forest Park, Md., made a verbal commitment last month.

Pitt, which finished 13-15 last season, has one more available scholarship and most likely will go after a point guard. The Panthers recently were chosen to host the 2007 first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
