Rick Pitino and the Louisville men’s basketball program has self-reported two separate Level III NCAA violations from a laser tag trip it took in April.
Yes, laser tag.

“On April 19, six members of the men’s basketball team took a trip to a local laser tag facility where they were given admission money by the program, according to information obtained by Sporting News in an open records request,” reports Kami Mattioli. “But because they received money for admission outside of the playing season, Louisville’s compliance office had to self-report the news to the NCAA. All six players were then ordered to donate their $7 admission fee to charity.”
According to the report, Louisville was also hosting two recruits during the trip, who had “forgot” to take the admission prices from their host money budget. That’s not okay, either.
