UofL self-imposes postseason ban
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The UofL men’s basketball program self-imposed a postseason ban for the ACC and NCAA tournaments this season as a result of an internal investigation stemming from the escort scandal.
UofL noted that the NCAA report is still pending. There’s no word yet on what the penalties will be, if any additional sanctions are to come down, from the national organization.
Head coach Rick Pitino noted he got Kentucky through a bad probation and he intends to do the same in Louisville.
Even if it’s beyond tough telling his players just a month out from tourney time, there will be no postseason for them.
