“Anytime you go over .500 in the ACC, the Big 10, the Big East, you should automatically be in,” Pitino said. “I don’t want to hear about all the other stuff. You should automatically be in.”
“We all know that this league is not down,” Pitino said. “We all know that Providence beat the No. 1 team in the country. You also look at the talent, they have five 1,000-point scorers.
“In my mind, if somebody’s’ over .500 in the Big East, they should be in the tournament.”
