Rick Pitino suggests ‘May Madness’ to ‘save’ college basketball season

Rick Pitino

Rick Pitino is concerned about whether the college basketball season can be played on schedule, and he has some suggestions to try to help that process.

With ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic — and a spate of cancellations in college football this weekend — Pitino suggested that the start of the season be delayed. Pitino believes it is “impossible” to play right now, but thinks it would be doable with the institution of a conference-only schedule and “May Madness.”

Pitino’s idea is just one of many that could be implemented for the season. There have been others that are far more radical.

The 68-year-old Pitino is about to embark on his first season as head coach at Iona, his first job since being forced out at Louisville due to NCAA rules violations.
