Take it for what it’s worth, but Coach Pitino told the media this afternoon that he does not expect Terrence Jennings to return next season.

Pitino say’s at this at this point he is┬ápreparing for next season as if Jennings will not be around.

“As far as I’m concerned, he won’t be back.”

It’s hard to tell if Coach is just preparing for the worst, or if he actually expects T.J. to sign with an agent. He went on to mention how strong the Cards are at the center position, with or without Jennings.

As weak as this years NBA draft is, I really wouldn’t be surprised if a team takes chance on him late in the second round.
