Pitino wasn't necessarily upset at the players who played tonight's game, but he seemed to be very angry at suspended players Deng Adel and Mangok Mathiang.
After talking to reporters for roughly 45 seconds, Pitino stormed away when asked about Mathiang.
After I asked about rebounding, mentioning Mathiang, Pitino said, "I don't -- don't mention his name to me. That's all I've got. Thank you."— Eric Crawford (@ericcrawford) February 7, 2017
