In her final game at Petersen Events Center, Marcedes Walker put her name in the record books as the leading rebounder in Pitt women’s basketball history.

Walker, a 6-foot-3 senior center from Philadelphia, broke Wanda Randolph’s 29-year-old school record of 1,107 rebounds Monday on Senior Night in Pitt’s 70-33 victory over Georgetown in the Big East regular-season finale.

Walker finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds – her 51st career double-double – to lead Pitt (20-9, 10-6), which won 20 games three consecutive seasons for the first time.

Walker now has 1,114 career rebounds.

Pitt honored seniors Walker, Karlyle Lim and Mallorie Winn and team manager Adia Effiong in a pre-game ceremony. Winn, a 5-foot-11 guard from San Diego, made three 3-pointers to score nine points. She now needs 28 points to break 1,000 for her career. Lim, a 5-6 guard from Chapel Hill, N.C., scored six points and had six assists in her first start of the season.

Georgetown finished 15-14, 5-11.

Pitt plays next on Saturday in the first round of the Big East tournament in Hartford, Conn.
