NCAA won’t allow U of L men to attend women’s title game

Update: NCAA says it did offer a waiver, but it was too late for Louisville men to attend the women’s championship game.

ATLANTA — After the Louisville men beat Michigan 82-76 to win the national title on Monday night, Rick Pitino criticized the NCAA for not granting a request made by the university.

The school asked the men be allowed to travel as a team to New Orleans to support the U of L women in Tuesday night’s national title game against Connecticut. The NCAA said that would constitute an “extra benefit” and denied the request.
