Because Rick Pitino is Rick Pitino and likes to keep us all entertained, he told the media after a 77-57 win over Saint Louis: “We had the best recruiting class, I think, in college basketball, as far as I’m concerned.” This is above our class with Skal, Jamal and Briscoe, I-Zack, Mychal Mulder and Charles Matthews and even Dukes (bleh).
And because he can’t do anything without talking about Kentucky (jealous, much?) he also said, “Kentucky taught me how to get into the one-and-dones, and I’m doing it now, except I’m waiting for fifth-year guys instead of high school kids.”
According to Jeff Greer of the Courier-Journal, Pitino also believes that Louisville is being ignored because of the Katina Powell situation. Apparently everyone is focusing on that instead of the stellar basketball they’re playing.
