Rick Pitino Boasts about U of L Basketball Schedule, Brags about First Game Against Manhattan


We had the second toughest schedule in the country last season, and I think our non-conference schedule is much tougher this season than it was a year ago.


-The difference between last season and this season is that we have to be ready to go early this year. We play Manhattan to open and they won 20 games last season, and then not long after we go to the Bahamas for a tournament where six teams are ranked.

Rick, I’m not impressed.  U of L’s first two games are against Manhattan and Samford at the Yum Center.  Kentucky’s first two games are against Maryland and Duke on the road. Which one do you think is tougher?
