Men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino held a press conference Thursday in which he discussed the progress of the team during this off-season. Coach also detailed the 2017-18 regular season schedule.

Along with the schedule being announced, Pitino named the three-man squad of captains for the upcoming season.

Seniors Anas Mahmoud and Quentin Snider were honored as such. Junior Deng Adel rounds out the trio of captains for the club.

The captains were selected by votes from players and coaches.

Coach Pitino added that Mahmoud garnished the most votes for the captain status out of any other player on the team.

“All three will give us great leadership this year and they all have great experience. We’re a young team in certain areas, but we’re experienced in others,” Pitino said.
