Finals Watch: Pitino's pride

ATLANTA (AP) — Pitino's Pride

It's been a memorable week for Rick Pitino.

Pitino is coaching Louisville in the Final Four, and on Wednesday his son Richard was named head coach at Minnesota.

So Thursday's question for Pitino: Which was the bigger event?

"They're both exciting," Pitino said after pausing to consider the question. "I'm very proud and happy for Richard ... so it's been a great week for our family."
