LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- University of Louisville junior guard Russ Smith has been named to the BIG EAST Conference weekly honor roll for his performance in the Battle 4 Atlantis.

Smith averaged 17 points, six rebounds, 3.3 steals and three assists in three games of the Battle 4 Atlantis as the Cardinals reached the championship game before falling to then-No. 5 Duke.  Smith and backcourt mate Peyton Siva were both honored on the Battle 4 Atlantis all-tournament team.

Smith had 18 points, six rebounds and six steals in Louisville’s victory over then-No. 13 Missouri and produced 17 points and a career-high seven rebounds against Duke.  Cincinnati guard Sean Kilpatrick was honored as the BIG EAST Player of the Week.
