Rick Pitino Does Not Make Cut For Hall Of Fame

In his first year nominated, Rick Pitino reportedly did not make the cut to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

One of 12 finalists, Pitino has been informed he did not make the cut.

"He was very disappointed," the source said. "He thought his chances were good."

Rick Pitino is enjoying this year's journey with a thoroughly random assemblage of players who differ greatly from man to man in their origins, backgrounds, and paths to the rotation of this season's most unlikely Final Four squad, Eamonn Brennan writes. Blog

The Louisville coach was among the headliners from a class of nominees that includes Reggie Miller, Bernard King and Don Nelson. The inductees will be announced at the Final Four in New Orleans, and Nelson already has confirmed he will be among them.

While I think this is borderline absurd and would have obviously preferred Pitino to get the nod, there is a part of me that is selfishly happy to have yet another piece of motivation heading into one of the biggest weekend's in the history of Louisville basketball.

Two more wins would make a nice little statement.
