Today was the ACC Basketball Teleconference and here are a few takes from it:

  •  Coach said ” I would like to use the final six games to get more playing time for Donovan Mitchell, Anas Mahmoud and Deng Adel for next season.
  • Rick Pitino said that his players were handling themselves well and relying on their team’s chemistry to carry their spirits through a tough time.
  • “The guys played really hard the last two games, but you can see it’s weighing on them a little bit, emotionally, that they aren’t going to play in the tournament,we’re just trying to keep our perspective, keep working hard.”

Just a few nuggets for you. Seems like coach already has a battle plan for next year. Does this mean Rick believes he will be back? I for one hope so. The Cards (19-6, 8-4 ACC) play Syracuse (18-8, 8-5 ACC) Wednesday night at 7PM on ESPN.

Go Cards!
