Russ Smith is staying at Louisville to chase another NCAA championship and a degree.
They haven't stopped partying in Louisville.
Ben McLemore is one and done at Kansas. Ricky Ledo is none and done with Providence.
The father of Russ Smith says the Louisville junior guard will leave school to enter the NBA draft.
The backup forward, better known as "Plan B" for Rick Pitino's talented team, went on a shooting spree for the ages Monday night, making four straight 3-pointers over a two-minute span late in the first half to help pull Louisville out of a double-digit deficit and into a one-point lead.
With a national championship slipping away in the final minutes, Trey Burke raced back on defense and gave Michigan fans one more spectacular play to remember.
Someday soon, Rick Pitino is going to have to explain the tattoo to his grandkids.
Two minutes. Four 3-pointers. Safe to say, Luke Hancock knows how to make good use of his time.
Plenty of teams talk about how tight-knit they are, how the team matters more than any individual accomplishment.
Junior guard Russ Smith will leave Louisville early to enter the NBA draft, according to his father.
It's good to be Rick Pitino these days.
Luke Hancock came off the bench to score 20 points, walk-on Tim Henderson sparked a second-half rally with a pair of monster 3s and Louisville advanced to the NCAA title game Saturday night, escaping with a 72-68 victory over Wichita State.
Kevin Ware couldn't stay seated for this one.
Playing hunches does not get a coach into the Hall of Fame. It certainly didn't get Rick Pitino to the threshold.
Louisville already had the bigger names, the better team and some unfinished business after coming up short in last year's Final Four.
"I realized how much I loved playing with my teammates and how much fun it is to win," Smith said, "and this is part of the purpose of being a national champion.
"I'm happy I finally got it off my chest," Smith said of his decision.
