Rick Pitino met with the media on Thursday afternoon to discuss a number of different things, including team captains for the upcoming season.
Senior’s Quentin Snider and Anas Mahmoud as well as junior Deng Adel were voted tri-captains by their teammates and coaches
“The players and coaches each had a vote,” Pitino said. “I was pleasantly surprised that Anas received the most votes, followed by Quentin and Deng. All three will give us great leadership this year and they all have great experience. We’re a young team in certain areas, but we’re experienced in others. It should be a great mix.”
We’ll have a full recap of Rick Pitino’s press conference posted shortly.
