Rick Pitino changed, regained March magic

Back in March, in the throes of all the usual Madness, it seemed for all the world that if Rick Pitino was out walking by himself, with no one else around, not a single soul, the Louisville basketball coach would look down and find a $100 bill. The man was just that lucky. Here he was being selected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., while his team was being showered with praise for the way it handled Kevin Ware's horrific broken leg as (by the way) it was beating Duke to reach the Final Four. It then beat Wichita State to reach the finals and Michigan to win Pitino's second national title, his first at Louisville.
