Rick Pitino had a pretty good Monday.
He started the day by being inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, and ended the night holding the NCAA Championship trophy, his first with the Louisville Cardinals and the second of his illustrious coaching career.
It seems impossible that with so many great coaches in the history of the game, Pitino is the first in NCAA history to win the national basketball championship with two different schools. He was already the first men's coach to take three different schools to the Final Four, but cutting down the nets with two different schools puts him in a pantheon of coaching legends reserved for a select few.
Monday night's victory begs this question (and probably answers it too): Is Pitino the best college basketball coach in America?
