HOW THEY GOT HERE:
Defeated Sam Cohen in the quarterfinals, 95%-5% (1,646-95)
--Was the central figure in the scandal that resulted in Louisville self-imposing an NCAA Tournament ban for the 2015-16 season.
--Has not made a public statement on the matter since he resigned from his assistant coaching position at UMKC.
HOW HE GOT HERE:
Defeated John Calipari in the quarterfinals, 74%-26% (1,065-368)
--Making his LCPT debut.
--While calling Louisville's game against Michigan State, said Rick Pitino shouldn't be the coach of the Cardinals.
--"There's so many layers to it. There's the NCAA part of it. There's a criminal investigation. To me, it doesn't matter whether Coach Pitino knew or didn't know. It shouldn't happen under anybody's watch. I'd be a bad athletic director, I know. I'd be a bad president. I would be. But I would not have Coach Pitino as my coach. When these things come out, you just can't tolerate that as an institution. This isn't the only thing that, over the last five years, has come out with Louisville. And as a president or athletic director I'd get tired of these things. I have too much respect for higher education and the people who pay to have their kids go to Louisville to allow that. But he is, and good for him."
--Tweeted that "karma is a mutha" for Trey Lewis and Damion Lee after the postseason ban was announced on Feb. 5, later saying that both players had "abandoned" their former teams to go play at Louisville.
You have 24 hours to send one of these two to the finals.
