Pitino Showing Interest In Junior College Big Man

WTC Athletics At this point, all signs point to Louisville landing 6-foot-9 center Chinanu Onuaku on Friday afternoon when he’s set to make his college decision. Miami and Georgetown are also in the mix, but it certainly looks like Louisville is in the driver seat.

The Strong Seattle Pipeline Will Continue With Shaqquan Aaron

Emerald City native Shaqquan Aaron could be the next Louisville star...

Audio: Toucher & Rich hang up on Rick Pitino

Pitino is a dirty word in Boston.  Regardless of what he did before or after his stint with the Celtics, any C’s fan who lived through that debacle still looks at him with disdain.  Not only did he throw the team into a decade long funk, he arrogantly supplanted Red Auerbach as President of the team.  Rather than acknowledge C’s history and weave himself into its fabric, he...

Toucher and Rich's Non-Interview Interview with Rick Pitino

Any Celtics fan who has been around for any length of time can't help but have some animosity toward Rick Pitino for his ill fated reign as Celtics coach and GM. Pitino is the main reason Larry Bird left the organization. He disrespected Red Auerbach and almost single handedly set the franchise back years. Banner 17 might have come much sooner if it hadn't been for the...
