Louisville coach Rick Pitino might win his second national championship, but he will not be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Pitino was among a class of nominees that includes Reggie Miller, Bernard King and Don Nelson. The inductees will be announced at the Final Four in New Orleans, and Nelson already has confirmed he will be among them.
