Rick Pitino met with the media on Wednesday afternoon to preview Thursday’s match-up against Memphis. The Cards will have their first home game of the conference slate as they host the No. 24 ranked Tigers. Here is a brief recap of Pitino’s presser.
Memphis’ Joe Jackson
They have four terrific guards, they’re very unselfish. He’s a terrific basketball player. We were getting blown out in that game and we were able to turn him over a few times and that was a difference.
They do a lot of things that North Carolina does. Their transition game is very similar.
The Infamous White Suite
I’m not in a white suit mood this year. You have my word on that one.
Mangok Mathiang’s Development
I see strides but they’re baby stories. Big guys just take longer than guards to mature. I don’t think he’s going to get any bigger physical. He’s to the point where he can’t eat anymore. He’s just staying at 210 pounds. It is what it is with him and that’s what you live with.
