NCAA Tournament 2017: Louisville player thought CBS's Tracy Wolfson was a spy

One of the Cardinals was a bit concerned to see the reporter sidling up to the team's huddle during a time out.

Stakes are higher in the NCAA Tournament, and at least one Louisville player isn't messing around when it comes to security.

According to Cardinals coach Rick Pitino, one of his younger players expressed concern during Friday's 78-63 win over Jacksonville State that a woman he didn't recognize was getting a bit too close to Louisville's huddle.

"Show you how inexperienced we are, one of my players said there's a lady in the huddle stealing our plays, Tracy Wolfson," Pitino said at his postgame news conference. "They thought she was giving it to the other team."

Louisville has only three freshmen on its roster, but you'd hope even they would recognize the veteran CBS Sports sideline reporter.

Then again, the kid might have been onto something. The Cardinals' next game is Sunday against Michigan — Wolfson's alma mater.
