Why is Rick Pitino so excited for Friday's Sweet 16 game?

03/26/2015 07:30 AM

Friday night around 7:35pm, the Louisville Cardinals will take on ACC foe NC State in an East Regional Sweet 16 game. This is the 4th straight year Louisville has been part of the final 16 teams around. Yet this particular collection of Cardinals has really captued a soft spot in the heart of head coach Rick Pitino.

Pitino says not only is his team playing to potential, but this tournament in general has been a fun time, what with all the upsets taking place. Louisville and NC State met a month ago with the Wolfpack beating the Cards in the YUM Center. The winner of Friday’s game, will take on the Oklahoma-Michigan State winner on Sunday, for the right to advance to the Final Four.
