Rick Pitino’s Greek team wins after other team forfeits at halftime in protest

Rick Pitino

Rick Pitino’s Panathinaikos team has advanced to the finals of the Greek Cup in bizarre circumstances.

Pitino’s team was leading Olympiacos 40-25 at halftime. As they prepared for the second half, they waited for Olympiacos to emerge from the locker room, but that never happened.

Olympiacos forfeited the game in protest of the referees. Pitino wrote about it on Twitter, saying he’d never experienced anything like it.

The oddities didn’t end there — Panathinaikos owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos put a pair of women’s underwear on the Olympiacos bench after their forfeit.

Things are just completely different in Greece. It’s something Pitino needs to get used to. As for Olympiacos, when you’re in the same category as LaVar Ball, that’s never a good sign.
