Pitino: Louisville should consider legal action vs. NCAA

Former Louisville coach Rick Pitino believes the school should take legal action against the NCAA after the governing body nullified the Cardinals of the 2013 men's basketball title.

Pitino, speaking from his attorney's offices in New York, said that the NCAA's decision to have Louisville vacate the title as part of sanctions for a sex scandal was unfair.

"I don't know if this Board of Trustees will do that," Pitino said when asked if Louisville should take legal action, "but they should because the players deserve it."
