Pitt sophomore women’s basketball player Yacine Diop faces charges after an undisclosed incident on campus last month.

Pitt police arrested Diop on Aug. 28.

Diop faces three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of recklessly endangering another person, one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of sale and use of air rifles, according to a court docket.

According to the Pitt Associate Athletic Director for media relations E.J. Borghetti, the court issued Diop 100 hours of community service. All charges will be dropped following the completion of the community service.

Borghetti said that Diop expressed her “sincere regret for her involvement in this situation” and that the school is “confident she will exercise better judgment moving forward.”
