UofL MEN'S BASKETBALL | Cards Host Tip-Off Luncheon

10/27/2016 09:44 PM

The Louisville men’s basketball team held its annual “Tip-Off Luncheon” on Thursday afternoon in Louisville.

It was a chance for season ticket holders and fans to hear from head coach Rick Pitino about the upcoming season.

In fact, Pitino got the crowd laughing quite a bit, especially when talking about forward Anas Mahmoud.

The event also gave fans to see the players and coaches up close, as the team was introduced one-by-one.

The Louisville men’s basketball team opens up exhibition play at home against Kentucky Wesleyan on November 3rd.
