Chat with Pitt's Aaron Gray
|Aaron Gray will be at the center of Pitt's chances to live up to the preseason potential.|
Gray was among ESPN.com's Impact 25, a list of 25 players, administrators and coaches that will be in the news this season. Gray is one of nine returning players that made the list. You can also rank ESPN.com's Impact 25 teams.
Pitt returns eight of its top 10 players from a squad that finished 25-8 overall and 10-6 in Big East play. Gray is one of those players that returns, after the senior toyed with the idea of entering the NBA draft, before pulling his name out of the draft before the NBA draft's early entry deadline. Gray will lead a team that advanced to the Big East Championship final for the fifth time in the last six seasons and appeared in a school record fifth straight NCAA Tournament.
As a junior in 2005-06, the 7-0 center averaged 13.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game.
