Just after leaving the White House on Tuesday, Rick Pitino and his entire coaching staff headed to Las Vegas to pick up where they left off with recruiting. There are two big AAU tournaments going on in Vegas right now. The Fab 48, Adidas Super 64 and Las Vegas Classic will run until the end of the weekend.
All three of Louisville’s current commitments will be in Vegas this weekend. Quentin Snider and the Louisville Magic are competing in the Fab 48. JaQuan Lyle recently switched AAU clubs from the Indiana Spiece to the Chicago based Mac Irvin Fire and will be participating in the Las Vegas Classic. Shaqquan Aaron will also be playing in the Vegas Classic with the Rotary Club team out of Seattle.
On Wednesday night, Pitino was joined by assistants Mike Balado and Kevin Keatts to watch Myles Turner and Cliff Alexander, two of the top centers in the 2014 class square off. According to Jody Demling of Cardinal Authority, Pitino has been watching Turner on Thursday afternoon.
