It took a while, but someone has finally said no to Derrick Caracter: after saying he was absolutely leaving Louisville to try his luck in the NBA, Caracter apparently changed his mind but too late: he's academically ineligible and Rick Pitino doesn't want to waste any more time.
"I was hoping he would try the pros," he told the Louisville Courier-Journal. "That's all he talked about all year. I told him to go to Orlando. I don't know why he wouldn't go there. It's crazy."
His mom says he loves Louisville and wants to stay there, but it seems highly unlikely at this point.
