LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Here are five stories WAVE Country will be talking about today:

1. Warm weekend: What a way to start the weekend! Highs today will reach the mid-70s. WAVE 3 News Storm Tracking Team meteorologists Christie Dutton and Brian Goode say a few showers are possible over the weekend.

2. UofL controversy: The NCAA has rejected the University of Louisville's claim that coach Rick Pitino did everything he could to prevent the sex scandal that rocked the men's basketball program. The NCAA says Pitino failed to notice "red flags" in a staff member's activities that led to violations. A former escort says now-ex-team assistant Andre McGee hired dancers for sex parties with recruits and players. Click here to find out what happens next in the process and what all of this could mean for Pitino.

3. Walker funeral: Friends and family of 20-year-old Savannah Walker will lay the University of Louisville student to rest tonight. Walker was shot and killed during a mass shooting at a concert at Tim Faulkner Art Gallery last weekend. A vigil is planned for tomorrow at Ballard High School, where a tree will be planted in her honor. So far, no arrests have been made in the shooting that injured five other people.

4. Wanted suspect: A man wanted for multiple felonies and misdemeanors, with warrants in four different counties, has been active on Facebook, police say, so the Grayson County sheriff sent him his personal cell phone number and told Joshua Sandlin to call him. Sandlin is considered armed, dangerous and desperate. He's beginning to approach random houses now, Sheriff Norman Chaffins said. Click here to see Sandlin's picture. Call 911 if you see him.

5. Tournament action: The Kentucky Wildcats battle UCLA tonight for a spot in the Elite Eight. The mega matchup is scheduled to tip off just before 10 p.m. Meanwhile, Bellarmine fell to Fairmont State last night in the NCAA Division II Final Four. The UofL women take on Baylor tonight at 9:30 on ESPN 2.
