Pitino Gives Details Of Sypher Affair To Police

The only good thing about this basketball news it that the story didn’t break on the Thursday before the University of Louisville’s football opener, as many big basketball stories have in the past.

Andrew Wolfson of the Courier-Journal has finally broken the story on Rick Pitino’s involvement with Karen Sypher from Pitino’s interview with the Louisville Metro Police. The C-J story, pretty straight forward, is here.  A little juicier version is over on Deadspin.

Whoever said the truth will set you free could never have imagined the Internet or fan message boards.
