Louisville basketball fans have known for a long time that Russ Smith is one of the most dynamic scorers to ever wear a Cardinals jersey. It is now the other parts of the world that are finally getting to see him in action.

Smith recently signed with a professional team in China, playing in the NBL’s second tier, and in his first five games has put up some Russdiculous numbers. Smith is averaging over 61 points per game, and this morning netted an incredible 81 points in his teams victory.

Smith’s father, Russ Smith sr. joined the show today and said watching his son flourish on a team that lets him play his unique style of basketball is a serious relief.
