In case you missed it, Pittsburgh men’s basketball coach Kevin Stallings got into it with a Louisville fan Tuesday night during Pitt’s 77-51 loss to the Cardinals at the KFC Yum Center.

During the exchange, the former Vanderbilt coach yelled, “At least we don’t pay our guys 100 thousand dollars” to the fan in reference to allegations against Louisville in the FBI’s investigation into college basketball.

Whitney Harding of WHAS-TV in Louisville has the audio:

Tom Lane of WDRB-TV in Louisville has Stallings talking about the comment during his postgame press conference.
