If you’ve ever watched an NCAA Tournament game on CBS in recent years, then you probably know sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson. If you don’t, though, you could potentially think she’s a spy.
Or at least that was the case for one Louisville player.
Cardinals coach Rick Pitino was speaking to the media about his team’s “inexperience” Friday after second-seeded Louisville’s 78-63 win over No. 15 seed Jacksonville State, and the example he used to prove his point turned out to be pretty hilarious. One of Pitino’s players apparently got a little confused when he saw Wolfson in the huddle.
“This is a very inexperienced team,” Pitino told reporters, per ESPN.com’s Myron Medcalf. “We’re down two scholarships. Our backcourt is a little thin. Show you how inexperienced we are, one of my players said, ‘There’s a lady in the huddle stealing our plays.’ It’s Tracy Wolfson.”
Of course, Wolfson isn’t a Jacksonville State spy, but the story still gave her a laugh.
