Rick Pitino uses Christina Aguilera analogy to describe Louisville frontcourt

Jamie Squire

Louisville Cardinals coach Rick Pitino also says "leave the dancing to Justin Timberlake."

Rick Pitino took to his personal website to discuss some frontcourt issues following the Louisville Cardinals' 73-66 loss to rival Kentucky, but it wasn't exactly your typical Xs and Os chatter. Pitino went with an analogy to describe his frontcourt and specifically Chane Behanan and Montrezl Harrell, who were pretty much neutralized by the UK bigs.

Harrell played 21 minutes, picked up three fouls and totaled six points and four rebounds. Behanan went 0-for-3 with three turnovers in 20 minutes.

It's like having Christina Aguilera to sing at a concert, she comes out, ignores her great voice and dances for two hours. That's our front court.

In other words, Montrezl and Chane - Need to dominate the paint. Rebound like Kenneth Faried , defend like Dennis Rodman, block shots and dunk. Score off rip moves and leave the dancing to Justin Timberlake.

The only possible place the analogy falls apart is where Pitino seems to say that JT can't dance AND sing, but we'll let that slide.
