Star recruit, six-foot, 11-inch center Marvadene "Bubbles" Anderson was redshirted for the season. Pitt compiled a 9-21 record, and for the second year in a row, went 0-16 in the conference prompting the replacement of head coach Agnus Berenato with Suzie McConnell-Serio on April 12, 2013.[3]

New coach Pitt hired Suzie McConnell-Serio to replace Berenato as head coach.[3] The 2013-14 season will be Pitt's first competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Pitt returns 11 players from the previous season including seniors Asia Logan and Ashlee Anderson. 6'11" redshirt freshman "Bubbles" Anderson will see her first collegiate action.
