'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Pitt women's basketball team improved to 5-1 with an 86-60 win over Longwood on Monday at Petersen Events Center.

All five wins have come after the Panthers dropped the season opener against Youngstown State. The five-game winning streak is their longest since 2009-10 when they won eight in a row to start the season.

Sophomore point guard Brianna Kiesel scored a career-high 27 points, breaking her previous best of 26 last year at Villanova. Sophomore Chyna Golden recorded her second career double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, and junior Asia Logan also finished with her second career double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Longwood (1-5) led, 30-26, with three minutes left in the first half, but Pitt took a 35-30 advantage to halftime. Longwood got no closer than six points with 12:15 left to play before the Panthers made it 56-46 a minute later.

Pitt travels to Lafayette for its first road game of the season Saturday. Coach Agnus Berenato is two wins away from becoming Pitt's all-time wins leader. Kirk Bruce (159) holds the record.
