2010–11 Pittsburgh Panthers women's basketball team

The 2010–11 Pittsburgh Panthers women's basketball team represented the University of Pittsburgh in the 2010–11 NCAA Division I women's basketball season. The Panthers, coached by Agnus Berenato, suffered their first losing season since 2004-05; the Panthers are a member of the Big East Conference and play their home games at the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The 2010-11 Pitt women's basketball went 16-15, a disappointing finish considering that in December, the team had climbed as high as 15th in the nation in both the AP and Coaches' national polls. Finishing with the 12th seed in the Big East Tournament, the Panthers lost in the first round of the tournament to Louisville, but still earned its fifth straight post-season national tournament appearance in the 2010 Women's National Invitation Tournament. However, Pitt lost its opening game in the WNIT at Toledo; the Panthers return four starters. The offseason was characterized with an unusual turnover in both players and coaching staff.

Center/forward Pepper Wilson, sophomore forward Kate Popovec, sophomore guard Sarah Ogoke transferred, while assistant coaches Jeff Williams, Caroline McCombs, Yolette McPhee-McCuin all left to pursue additional opportunities. Incoming players include forward Kyra Dunn as well as guards Marquel Davis, Yasmin Fuller, Asia Logan; this leaves the Panthers with an unusual distribution of players by academic class, with five seniors and six freshman, but with no juniors or sophomores. New coaches include the former head coach of the WNBA's New York Liberty, Patty Coyle, along with Khadija Head, former Pitt point guard Mallorie Winn; the women's basketball team enters the season with modest external expectation having been picked to finish 13th in the Big East Conference in a preseason poll of conference coaches. The Panthers started the season receiving two votes in the preseason national top 25 AP Poll. *Dismissed from the team during the season following the St. Francis game on December 1, 2010 for a violation of team rules.
