Kyla Nelson has returned to action on the court for Pitt after recovering from cancer surgery before the start of the 2019-20 season.

The former GB Under-20 guard commenced her junior year with three points and two assists in 12 minutes as the Panthers fell to a 71-80 loss at home to Miami University – fellow Brit Monique Esbrand had 11 points in the win.

Nelson played 60 games through her first two seasons with Pitt with 17 starts, whilst amassing 300+ points, 100+ rebounds and 50+ assists in 19+ minutes per game.

The 22-year-old revealed the diagnosis of a tumour of the apendix in September and received support flooding in from around the world including the British Basketball community.
