Rick Pitino On Brian Bowen: “We Got Lucky On This One”

Chris Humphrey

Just two days after landing one of the highest ranked recruits in his UofL tenure, Rick Pitino joined Terry Meiners on News Radio 840 WHAS to discuss the addition of Brian Bowen.

In the interview Pitino admitted that the program got lucky. It’s not often that a five star prospect reaches out in late May to express interest.

“He’s a terrific ball handler, terrific passer, outstanding shooter and a great scorer, Pitino tells Meiners when asked to describe Bowen’s game. “He just really knows how to play the game. He’s like a 6-foot-7 and a half inch version of Luke Hancock, but a little more athletic.
