Rick Pitino taunted with fake money during introduction (Video)
The men’s basketball program at Louisville has been under the microscope in recent months after allegations a member of the staff was accused of hiring escorts to dance for and have sex with players emerged. Not surprisingly, fans in opposing arenas have let the Cardinals hear it in regards to the allegations, and Wednesday was no different.
Louisville was in Pittsburgh for a meeting with the Panthers. Before the game got underway, the Pitt student section was fired up. When Rick Pitino was introduced, Pittsburgh fans taunted the Cardinals head coach by tossing fake dollar bills featuring Pitino’s face on them.

All things considered, this is more lighthearted compared to what has probably been said by those near the Louisville bench so far this season. Pitino has continued to deny knowing about the alleged sex parties. It’s obvious those in the student section on Wednesday aren’t buying that.
