LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Rick Pitino is heading to New Orleans to watch the Cardinals' women's team play Connecticut in Tuesday night's NCAA championship - but he can't bring his players along.

Under NCAA rules, neither the school nor Pitino can pay for the players to get to New Orleans or attend the game. So unless they decide to do it on their own, the Cardinals are headed back to campus after winning their own national championship.

After Louisville beat Michigan 82-76 Monday night in Atlanta, players and Pitino hinted at going straight to New Orleans to support the surprising women's team against the Huskies in the final. The men and their coach have frequently attended women's games this season and both programs have said they feed off each other's success.
