LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Rick Pitino is once again studying video of Michael Jordan and John Stockton to learn from them.
The Louisville coach wants to be sure he knows what to say and not say when he is inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame on Sunday.
Pitino is among a seven-member class to be enshrined on Sunday in Springfield, Mass, that includes former college coaches Jerry Tarkanian and Guy Lewis, former NBA players Bernard King and Gary Payton, Virginia graduate and current South Carolina women's coach Dawn Staley and North Carolina's Sylvia Hatchell.
Former coaches-turned-TV analysts Dick Vitale and Hubie Brown will introduce Pitino, who's preparing to stay within the five-minute acceptance speech time and promised Monday to be "more thankful" than Jordan, who was criticized for taking shots at others during his induction speech.
