Tark, Pitino pumped for HOF weekend
By Andy Katz
UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- While Rick Pitino shows no signs of slowing down, former UNLV Rebels coach Jerry Tarkanian just hopes to "make a good showing" during this weekend's induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.
Tark is 83 and battling health problems. His speech is slow, deliberate and at times labored. But he was still able to muster a few words Friday after he arrived in New England with his family.
Tarkanian will enter the Hall on Sunday along with Louisville's Pitino and former Houston coach Guy V. Lewis, now 91.
