LOUISVILLE, Ky. — University of Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Sunday, Sept. 8.  The enshrinement ceremony, which will be televised live by NBA TV, will start at 2 p.m. at the Springfield (Mass.) Symphony Hall.

The 2013 induction class was announced on April 8 in Atlanta, the same day the Cardinals went on to beat Michigan 82-76 at the Georgia Dome to capture the NCAA Championship.  It was UofL’s third NCAA title and made Pitino the first coach in NCAA history to win a national championship at two different schools.  His 1995-96 University of Kentucky team also won a national title.

Pitino chose former NBA coach and current television analyst Hubie Brown, who Pitino served under as an assistant coach with the New York Knicks from 1983-85, and ESPN analyst Dick Vitale, who Pitino has known since his early days of coaching, as his presenters for the induction.

The CrunchZone.com will have full coverage of Pitino’s induction on Sunday.
