Louisville Senior Night: Pitino talks NCAA; Lee and Lewis get ovation

Louisville’s self-imposed postseason ban brought an extra bit of emotion to Tuesday’s Senior Night festivities. Trey Lewis and Damion Lee, two fifth-year seniors unconnected to the sex scandal, were not only playing their last game in the Yum! Center but the penultimate game of their college career.

Louisville coach Rick Pitino got a chance to address the ongoing investigation on the microphone, claiming to have the “most compliant” coaches in the NCAA.

But the best highlight of senior night might have been the ovations for Trey Lewis and Damion Lee.

There was also a killer art performance, a live painting of murals for Lee and Lewis by David Garibaldi, at halftime.

Louisville didn’t play great early but pulled out a 56-53 win against Georgia Tech. The Cardinals’ season will end after Saturday’s game at Virginia, a game with implications on the one honor they can win, an ACC regular-season championship.
