It wasn’t too many weeks ago that the Louisville Cardinals had low hopes of a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Loss after loss to weaker teams seemd to have the downward spiral well on it’s way. Then a funny thing happened on the way to the big show. The Cardinals found a way to put it all behind them, regroup, and string together some wins. Vindication for Pitino came in the announcement of a #1 seed. Now comes the high expectations and the even tougher job of keeping the Louisville Cardinals on an even keel as they fight to earn a berth in the Final Four. Digging deep is what Pitino, and the Cardinals, are all about. In the meantime Pitino is preaching that old coaches mantra about one game at a time. The Final Four will still be waiting if they can do that.
