Pitino Doesn't Enjoy Coaching in Rupp

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Rick Pitino says he doesn't look forward to coaching in the University of Kentucky's Rupp Arena again. He says he doesn't enjoy being the villain in the arena where he coached for eight years.

Tomorrow afternoon Pitino's Cardinals will play Stanford there in the first round of the N-C-A-A Tournament.

Last season, a loss to U-K in Rupp began Louisville's fall from number-four in the country to the N-I-T.

Louisville's Terrence Williams says he's heard talk of U-K fans buying up tickets just to cheer against them.

Louisville guard Edgar Sosa says he knows it's going to be loud but Pitino's won a lot of games there, so they've just got to listen to him.
