The MAAC Basketball Championship tournament is being held at Atlantic City’s famous Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall.
Iona, the No. 1 seed in the tournament, has a famous head coach, Rick Pitino. Pitino of course led mighty programs like Kentucky, Louisville to National Championships and is a 2013 Basketball Hall of Fame coach, leading three different teams to the Final Four.
Now Pitino, 70, is leading Iona, a MAAC conference school based in New Rochelle, NY.
After the Gaels win over Mount Saint Mary’s on Wednesday night, Pitino stopped into a famous Atlantic City favorite for dinner to celebrate the win.
Pitino dined in the famous Frank Sinatra room, lauding the great food and amazing service, after the victory.
He commented, “it doesn’t get any better”.
