Louisville coach Rick Pitino takes medical leave of absence


January 26, 2004
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville coach Rick Pitino is taking an indefinite leave of absence for health reasons.

``I have been in excruciating pain the last four or five games,'' Pitino said Monday. ``It's getting worse day by day.''

Pitino, 51, said the pain was ``urological related.'' He said doctors have ruled out prostate cancer, but he would be seeking treatment at the Cleveland Clinic.

Louisville (15-1) is ranked fourth in this week's AP Top 25.
