Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino said he doesn't care if a team of former Kentucky players currently in the NBA and Wildcats coach John Calipari borrow his team's homecourt for one night. But his tone suggested otherwise Wednesday during a press conference to discuss his team's upcoming trip to the Bahamas. “That's a public facility, it's our homecourt during the season, but obviously anybody can go in there,” Pitino said.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
