UofL BASKETBALL | Former Card Ellis Myles offers his perspective into Pitino's process

12/08/2016 07:33 PM

The Louisville Men’s Basketball team is ranked number 11 in the country, and recently beat Southern Illinois by 23 points. But after the game, head coach Rick Pitino had more criticism than complements for how his team played.

Pitino is hoping his team develops a pass-first mentality. For more on Pitino’s system, we had a man who played for him in studio. Ellis Myles played for Pitino from 2000-2005, and now coaches his AAU basketball team, The Louisville Magic. We asked him about Pitino’s comments, and got his thoughts on the current Cards.
