10/13/2015 03:27 PM

Amid allegations of sexual misconduct within the University of Louisville basketball program, the annual tip-off luncheon was held today in downtown Louisville.

Despite recommendations from the NCAA to avoid commenting on the situation, Head Coach Rick Pitino spent the majority of his time addressing salacious book claims .

“We will get through this — the right way,” said Pitino. “And whatever sits upon us we will find out with the right people investigating. We won’t go by hearsay. I know what this program’s all about. I feel very, very confident in what the players are all about.”

The team’s second red-white scrimmage takes place this Saturday at 4 p.m. at KFC Yum!
