Video: Rick Pitino takes in Minnesota hoops game

What does a Hall of Fame coach do when his team has a week off from game action? How about going to see your son’s team play?

Louisville coach Rick Pitino was in Minneapolis on Tuesday to watch his son’s Gophers take on South Dakota State. And Pitino was decked out from head to toe in Minnesota gear, a sight that Gophers fans should love to see.

BTN’s Stephen Bardo and Cory Provus caught up with Pitino at halftime. Listen to what he said about his son Richard in this must-watch interview.

Check out this photo we got before the start of Tuesday night’s game.
