When coach is concerned, everyone is concerned

Kenny-Klein-and-Rick-PItino

There are some concerned looks on the University of Louisville sideline before the second half begins between UofL and North Carolina Saturday. Coach Rick Pitino is more than a little disconcerted about how the game is going, his team trailing by 11 points.

Kenny Klein, the sports information direction, is obviously empathetic with the coach, knowing the Cardinals will have their hands full. But this is before Pitino’s team will overcome an 18-point deficit in the second 20 minutes to hand North Carolina a 78-68 defeat in overtime.

Just another dramatic come-from-behind win among many during Pitino’s colorful coaching career, much to the relief of the Louisville coach and the sports information director.
