Ashton Gibbs Returning to Pitt for Senior Year

Pittsburgh guard Ashton Gibbs will return for his senior season at the University of Pittsburgh and will not enter the NBA Draft.

Gibbs, a 6-2 point guard from Scotch Plains, N.J., led the Pitt Panthers in scoring last season with 16.8 points a game and to a regular season title in arguably the most competitive league in college hoops, the Big East.

Gibbs has outstanding shooting ability and a work ethic that will serve his Pitt squad well in his senior year. With a Pitt team that just lost three major senior starters—7-0 defensive standout Gary McGhee, the high-flying Gilbert Brown and shooting guard/stat sheet filler Brad Wannamaker—Gibbs will need to evolve his game from big-time scorer to facilitator under Jamie Dixon’s Pitt Panthers.
