Rick Pitino, fresh off back-to-back Final Fours and a national championship, sees a goal before his team heads to the ACC next year: creating a dynasty.
“It’s been two unbelievable years. Back-to-back Final Fours, which is extremely difficult, and in arguably one of the toughest conferences in all of basketball — the Big East — winning two championships, the last of which was won at Madison Square Garden in the last one of its kind to be played there with all these tremendous teams. One more, and you’ve now created a dynasty. Anytime you have three years at the championship level, you’ve created a dynasty. And that’s going to be our goal.”
Obviously he’s a gifted coach. It’ll be really interesting to see how he does in the ACC. Whatever he’s expecting, it won’t be what he’s expecting.
But it will make his team ready for the tournament.
