Pitino returns to team

Rick Pitino returned and resumed his coaching duties Thursday after a two-day medical leave.

Pitino, 51, was tested at the Cleveland Clinic on Tuesday and Wednesday to determine the cause of a "urological pain" that has persisted in his left side for months.

Assistant coach Kevin Willard substituted for Pitino in fourth-ranked Louisville's 64-48 win over Houston on Wednesday night.

Pitino was not available for comment Thursday. He is expected to discuss his condition at a news conference this afternoon.

The Cardinals play Marquette on Saturday at Freedom Hall.
