ATLANTA (AP) - It's good to be Rick Pitino these days.
Top-seeded Louisville is playing for the national championship, giving Pitino a chance to be the first coach to win titles at two different schools. His son, Richard, is the new Minnesota coach. One of his horses has a spot in the Kentucky Derby after coming from behind to win the Santa Anita Derby.
Oh, and Monday morning, the Hall of Fame will make it official, announcing Pitino as one of its newest inductees.
Pitino says he tries not to get too caught up in the highs or the lows of life. He simply appreciates the days as they come, and these days might be luckier than others.
