Vaught’s note: Okay, we all knew the Louisville-Duke game today was going to be full of 1992 storylines and UK fans are going to see that Christian Laettner game-winning shot all afternoon today as Duke and Louisville battle for a Final Fourth berth. But who do you want to win? Are you pulling for the Cards? Are you pulling for Duke? Will you be for either team?
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Mike Krzyzewski and Rick Pitino are finally doing an encore. For the first time since their teams played perhaps the greatest game in the history of the NCAA tournament, Krzyzewski and Pitino will meet in the NCAA tournament Sunday when top-seeded Louisville faces Duke. In the regional finals, no less.
Never mind that few of their current players were even born in 1992. Or that Pitino is no longer at Kentucky, having switched sides in the state’s civil war after his brief trip to Boston and the NBA ended badly. Krzyzewski and Pitino are forever linked by that one game in Philadelphia, immortalized by Christian Laettner’s improbable shot.
