PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Junior middle blocker Monica Wignot has landed a spot on the Big East’s final Weekly Honor Roll, as announced by league officials on Monday evening.

In Pittsburgh’s tournament clinching victory against Villanova on Sunday, Wingot tallied eight kills and a team-high eight block, leading the Panthers to a season-best 16 blocks at the net.
The Wilkes Barre, Pa. native helped the Panthers to a perfect 3-0 week as Pitt solidified the seven-seed in this week’s upcoming Big East Tournament. The Panthers will play tournament host and second-seeded Marquette on Friday night at 7 p.m.
This is Wignot’s second conference recognition of the season.
