Last season, after he had benched Edgar Sosa for what seemed like the 88th time in three years, Cardinals coach Rick Pitino sat solemn-faced across from the point guard in a private meeting in his office. "Edgar, look, why don't you just transfer?" Pitino said. NBA teams don't care how many points per game a player scores, Pitino told him; they want to know if he can play his position well at both ends of the floor. "You're just not getting it," Pitino concluded. "Why don't you go to a school where there's not a heavy emphasis on defense and it's just about offense? Come back to me tomorrow, and I'll let you know which school I think is best for you."
