Russ Smith and the UofL Record Books

Russ Smith continues his climb in the UofL record books in some categories. The biggest surprise to me is one where he isn’t even in the top 10 yet, and that is assists in a season. Russ needs 11 assists to tie Reece Gaines for the 10th most assists in a single season. Raise your hand if you ever predicted that would happen…now put your hands down you liars!
