INDIANAPOLIS – Arizona coach Russ Pennell will play this weekend by the book.
Rick Pitino’s book.
He’s savoring every moment in Indianapolis, from the open shootaround to the usually dreaded news conferences, fully understanding Friday night’s game against top-seeded Louisville could be his first and only chance to lead a team into the regional finals.
So the man with the interim title spent Thursday blunting questions about his uncertain future by focusing on the present. Or what Pitino once described as the precious present.
