Monday May 4th, 2015

Forward Rafael Maia has committed to Pittsburgh, according to reports.

Maia, a native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, played his last three seasons at Brown after being ruled ineligible in 2011-12.

In 2014-15, he averaged 9.9 points and 8.7 rebounds per game, marking the third consecutive season in which he's led the Ivy League in that category.

The Panthers went 19-15 and missed the NCAA tournament last season.
