Pitino press conference notes 2-1-13


By Justin Renck:

On Friday afternoon, Coach Pitino previewed the upcoming matchup with Marquette. He also talks about Wayne Blackshear’s availability. Here are the key notes from the press conference…

-Pitino said his top 3 teams (in no order) right now are Florida, Michigan, and Kansas. Indiana can also be thrown in the mix.

-Wayne Blackshear should play on Sunday, but he won’t start. Not sure how much he will play.

-Pitino calls the team very distracted. He says Chane Behanan is “a very distracted young man.”

-Said Marquette’s Davante Gardner(6’8 290 lbs) can score, pass, and shoot free throws. He will put a lot of pressure on the Cards.

-On Kevin Ware “Whether he will play or not remains to be seen.” He has returned to practice.

-Gorgui Dieng is close to being back to full health.

-Peyton Siva, Russ Smith, and Luke Hancock are the gym rats of the team.

-Pitino is “almost positive” that he won’t wear the white suit on Sunday. (So we know what that means!)
