LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The father of Russ Smith says the Louisville junior guard will leave school to enter the NBA draft.
Russ Smith Sr. said the Cardinals' leading scorer "did it all" during his college career that culminated with Louisville's 82-76 victory over Michigan Monday night for the NCAA championship. That title, two Big East and an all-conference first-team selection this season completes a resume he said made it easy for his son to take it to the next level.
Smith's father said his son will announce his decision in the next week.
Smith averaged 18.9 points this season including 23.3 in six NCAA tournament games. But he struggled in the Cardinals' title-clinching victory, missing 13 of 16 shots and finishing with just nine points.
Nonetheless, Smith Sr. said, "he's going."
