Rick Pitino is a Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer as a coach, but on Tuesday afternoon we saw him actually playing the sport. Coach P scored nine points as his Red Birds team lost in the opening round game of the Masters League at the Coral Springs Gymnasium.
I was worried there wouldn’t be any coverage of Pitino in action, but fortunately Chad Fischer of NBC-6 in Miami was on hand to get highlights and an interview.
I’m not sure why, but I can’t seem to stop watching Coach P bury this corner three as the shot clock expires.
