The past 12 years of Pittsburgh Panthers basketball has been pretty outstanding. Ranking in the top ten in both winning percentage and total wins, Pitt basketball is something that is a known force to be reckoned with.
Starting in the early 2000s with Brandin Knight leading the team, Ben Howland coached the annually mediocre University of Pittsburgh basketball program to Big East prominence.
When Jamie Dixon took over the reigns, the sky was the limit.
Since then, great players such as Sam Young, Dejuan Blair and Levance Fields have taken the court at the Petersen Events Center in search of a National Championship. While that title has evaded the Panthers, Big East Regular Season and Tournament Titles have come here and there, along with a few No. 1 rankings and No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament.
These are my top 15 Pittsburgh Panther basketball players since the year 2000.
