Louisville head coach Rick Pitino calls out ESPN analyst Digger Phelps' basketball knowledge, stating "that man knows nothing."
Louisville's Chane Behanan took off for an earth-shattering dunk against North Carolina A&T in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, but got rejected by the rim.
After Rick Pitino called out Digger Phelps for picking Louisville to go down in the Sweet 16, fans took to Twitter to hilariously hate on the ESPN analyst.
