Word from USAToday and NBC Sports is that the elder statesman (and Naismith Hall of Fame member) and the young upstart progeny could face each other as early as 2014.

While the younger Richard Pitino is in no hurry to be paired against the reigning national champions, it wouldn’t be the first time they have met.  In fact, Richard visited his father the KFC YUM! Center this past season in a losing effort.  Since then, he has moved on from his head coaching duties at Florida International to replace former Rick Pitino assistant, Tubby Smith.

Word is they are eyeballing a match up in the B1GACC Challenge for the 2014-2015 season.  We won’t know for sure if the Pitinos will be paired until August, 2014.  Stay tuned…
