Louisville’s Rick Pitino Had To Be Held Back From a North Carolina Fan at Halftime (Video)
The North Carolina Tar Heels have one of the more hostile home environments in the entire ACC, and Louisville’s head coach Rick Pitino found out just how hostile they can be when the two programs faced off on Wednesday night.
As Pitino headed to the locker room for halftime, a Tar Heels fan yelled something at him and Pitino had to be physically restrained by assistant coaches.
