One-On-One with Brianna Kiesel

How have you changed as a basketball player throughout your time here at Pitt?

Kiesel: "I think as I look back, I can now say that I understand the game better. I'm more understanding of defenses and trying to get everyone involved. Also, I needed to figure out how to be a coach on the court. I'm working hand in hand with coach so whatever she says I make sure everyone else understands what they need to do on the court."

"I've definitely learned when I need to push the ball and when I need to slow down. I used to go 100 miles per hour all the time. Now, I understand that you need to know your player personnel to decide when to slow it down, when to get into offense or when it's time to push the ball."


This is why Brianna Kiesel is on of the best guards in the ACC #extrawork

How would you say you've grown as a point guard and as a leader of this team?

Kiesel: "Being a leader is big. I've become more vocal and now get everyone involved. I used to be pretty quiet, which is funny and ironic because I'm the point guard and it's my job to make all the calls and I can't afford to be quiet in that role.  Now that I'm a senior, I've definitely learned to become more vocal."

 

What role has Pitt Academic Support played in your success in the classroom?

Kiesel: "Pitt provides a lot of different options for student-athletes such as study hall, life skills and you even have study hall on the road. They help you with everything you need in order to do well, which is why I have been successful."


It's your senior year and you have experienced a lot of great moments on the court, but name one instance you will never forget?

Kiesel: "My first ACC win against Virginia last year is something I will always remember. That conference win is something I will keep near and dear to my heart forever."

On Wednesday November 4 student-athletes attended the 4th Annual Professional Etiquette Training Series and Dress for Success Fashion Show presented by the Cathy and John Pelusi Family Life Skills Program.

"Essentially this etiquette series is assembled based on first impressions," Director of Life Skills Lisa Auld said. "When someone first looks at you they evaluate you on how you're dressed, your words, and then your actions. Part one is our Dress for Success Fashion Show where we have some of our new coaches, sport administrators and former student athletes model looks."

Students learned the proper attire for game day, businesses casual, business formal, cocktail, and formal wear. They were also educated on various ways to enhance their look to make the very best first impression.

"We ended up learning a lot about how to dress, how to look formal and how to look casual," Pitt softball player Carly Thea said. "It was really educational and I'm glad I came."

Dress for Success is a three part etiquette series. The next event, Business Communication and Network Training, will be held on November 19 followed by Dining Etiquette in January.
