Rick Pitino to skip ACC basketball media day


The Louisville Cardinals’ basketball team has been dealing with extenuating circumstances the last few weeks.

The team has been accused of paying for parties with prostitutes, which has led to the resignation of former assistant basketball coach Andre McGee, who was in the same position at UMKC.

The accusations has now taken another toll on the team as the ACC Media Day creep up on the college basketball world. Louisville head coach Rick Pitino will not be attending media day with players Damion Lee, Trey Lewis, and Mangok Mathiang.

This is obviously a move for Pitino to avoid being asked any questions that could put in a position where the media could spin his answer to make him out to look bad. It’s certainly an interesting situation in Louisville right now as many would expect Pitino to attend the conference despite the circumstances.

Some may even think, despite Pitino being advised by lawyers to do so, that skipping the press conference would be almost an admission of guilt. Pitino has vehemently stated that he had no knowledge of the parties taking place.
