Resting place for Louisville’s NCAA trophies

Louisville-NCAA-TrophiesEver wonder where the University of Louisville’s NCAA basketball championship trophies from 1980 and 1986 are located?  Well, a pair of them are safely ensconced behind glass at the entrance to Rick Pitino’s office on the second floor of the Yum! Practice Center on Belknap Campus. 

The question then becomes which of them are the originals, the ones outside Pitino’s office or the set at the downtown arena?

The wall in Pitino’s administrative assistant’s office is covered with a floor to ceiling graphic of the basketball arena. Those items on the floor to the left of the desk are autographed mementoes awaiting pickup by UofL fans. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

    What’s up with the burial references??? Taj Mahal is a mausoleum and the trophies in a “resting place” — such morbidity on such a fine weekend! Go Cards
