LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville plans to retire the No. 2 jersey number of former All-America guard and fifth-highest scorer Russ Smith, who led the Cardinals to the 2013 NCAA men’s basketball championship that was later vacated. Smith’s jersey will be retired at halftime of Louisville’s game against Notre Dame on Jan. 22. His number will be the program’s fifth retired and joins those of Charlie Tyra, Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer Wes Unseld, Darrell Griffith and Pervis Ellison. Smith is Louisville’s only player with at least 1,800 career points, 350 assists and 250 steals.
