Vine: Rick Pitino In Hot Water For Using The Word "Midget" In Post-Game Interview

Today's Louisville-UC Irvine game was quite a sight, as Louisville's sizable frontcourt looked small when posting up against 7-foot-6 Anteaters center Mamadou N'Diaye. 

Pitino commented on that after the game, but used the word "midget" when describing the appearance of his players by comparison, which is generally considered a pejorative term for little people.

It is pretty clear that Pitino didn't mean any harm, but he'll probably hear about it a bit over the next few days.
