Pitino is Elected to the Hall of Fame
This is Pitino's 7th Final Four appearance, and he is the first to take three colleges to the Final Four. John Calipari did this three times as well, but his trips with Massachusetts and Memphis didn't count due to infractions penalties.
The players joining him in the Naismith Hall of Fame this year include, Gary Payton a nine time NBA All-Star, Jerry Tarkanian who coached for UNLV, Guy Lewis a former Houston coach, and Spencer Haywood an Olympic and NBA Star.
