ATLANTA, GA. — Congratulations to Louisville Coach, Rick Pitino, who became one of seven inductees elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame on Monday April 8, 2013, just before winning the 2013 N.C.A.A. title. Pitino, who just won his second national title, is the only men’s coach in N.C.A.A history to lead three different schools to the Final Four: Providence, Kentucky and Louisville. Rick Pitino is inducted into Basketball of Fame on April 8, 2013 just before winning the N.C.A.A. title.

“It’s a pretty special distraction,” Pitino said at the Hall of Fame announcement in Atlanta, before his Cardinals went on to win, 82-76.

Pitino was joined by fellow inductees former UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian, NBA all-star Gary Payton, former University of Houston Coach Guy Lewis and New York Knicks great Bernard King.
