Coach Pitino said in today’s press conference that the great thing about college basketball is that non-power conference teams, like Wichita State, can make it to the Final Four. He said when he saw Wichita State beat VCU in November he called his son Richard and told him to watch out for the Shockers back then.

Pitino said it’s terrific that there’s no difference between teams like Butler, VCU and Wichita State than UCLA, Louisville and North Carolina. “If you played them ten times, they’re going to win a few of those games. And sometimes they’re going to win more than their share and that’s what the one and done has done for College basketball, in a positive way,” Pitino said.

Getting as far as these teams have gotten in the NCAA Tournament is all about recruiting, Pitino said.
