In a lengthy interview with Louisville radio host Terry Meiners, former Louisville coach Rick Pitino says “outsiders” at the school “killed my dreams” and “killed one of the top recruiting classes in history.”
“Terry, nobody got indicted,” Pitino said from Tampa, Fla. “No system coaches got indicted. Nothing happened yet. The facts haven’t been out. They rushed to judgment. They killed my dreams. They killed some of the players’ dreams who wanted to play for me. They killed one of the top recruiting classes in the history of my tenure without any facts going on. Now that’s OK. I’m a big boy, and I’ll land on my feet the right way when the truth comes out.
Joining a long line of prominent college basketball programs that have answered the call to help those affected by natural disasters, the St. John’s and Rutgers men’s basketball teams will play an exhibition game on Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. in Piscataway, N.J., benefitting the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
General admission tickets to the contest and parking at The RAC will be $10 each with all net proceeds going to help those in need. Floor seating, however, will be reserved for Rutgers season ticket holders that occupy those seats throughout the year.
Tickets can be purchased online or by calling at 1-866-445-GORU (4678). Tickets will also be available on gameday at the Rutgers Athletics Ticket Office, located at the RAC.
