Alisa Favero-Lucarelli, from Pittsburgh, Pa., and Seton-LaSalle High School, is perhaps the best point guard ever to play for Point Park women's basketball. Favero-Lucarelli is the Pioneers' all-time leader in career assists and is also a top-10 all-time scorer at the school.
Favero totaled a school-record 416 assists during her time at Point Park from 1988-93 and also scored 1,180 points to rank 10th in school history. A four-year starter who also took a redshirt due to injury in 1991-92, Favero is sixth in the Point Park record book with 108 games played. Favero also shows up in the record book in fourth place with a career free-throw percentage of 73.6 and eighth place with 97 career 3-point field goals made.
Favero was an NAIA scholar-athlete who led the Pioneers to an NAIA District 18 playoff appearance during her senior year of 1992-93. She stayed on after her playing career was over to be an assistant coach on the Pioneers' staff.
Favero's high school career at Seton-LaSalle included being a member of a state championship team under coach Don DiLucente. She also played for AAU national championship teams in 1984 and 1986.
An elementary education major, Favero is currently a first-grade teacher in the Bethel Park School District. She married former Point Park baseball standout Joe Lucarelli.
