The Pitt women's basketball team stepped up its stature Wednesday when 6-foot-11 center Marvadene "Bubbles" Anderson, recognized as the world's tallest teenage girl, signed a national letter of intent.

Anderson, who was born in Jamaica and played the past three years at Rutgers (N.J.) Prep, averaged 11.7 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.5 blocks last season. Last year, she appeared on an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" titled "That's Incredible!"

Pitt also signed Krista Pettepier, a 6-2 forward from Ankeny (Iowa) High School.
