Rick Pitino Says Shaqquan Aaron is Dealing with Eligibility Issues

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino said on his radio show tonight that freshman Shaqquan Aaron is dealing with eligibility issues and is still not cleared for the 2014-15 season.

Just Saturday, Pitino was asked why Aaron didn't play in the exhibition game against Barry.

"I can't play everybody," Pitino said back to the reporter. "I really can't. And, you know, I didn't play Matz. I got to work on getting ready for Minnesota. You know, it's a different schedule this year. I know you want him to play but I can't play him because you want him to play."

After some laughter from those in the press conference, Pitino added, "I know you're making a valid point, but there's more to it than that. I haven't been happy with him in practice too much but there's more to it than that."

Here's the video from Saturday (skip to 8:45 mark):
