It's been some time since we've mentioned Rick Pitino's old friend and flame, Karen Sypher. You recall that the middle-aged blonde was convicted of extortion last fall for trying to bilk Pitino of millions of dollars and later accused the Louisville coach of raping her after the feds caught on to her crazy scheme. She's had a couple of sentencing hearings delayed already as her attorney earnestly (and we're sure, honestly) tries to put together more evidence for a re-trial motion. She's now due for sentencing to a federal penitentiary on February 18 of this year.
