Quick hump afternoon reads

Some stuff that may have been glossed over in the wake of basketball (BASKETBALL!) season started and the football team winning a league game for the first time since the Johnson administration...

Three-star Brooklyn point guard Russ Smith is expected to sign with Louisville today after fellow New York-native Edgar Sosa helped convince him to verbally commit to the Cardinals over the weekend.

"Sosa kind of took me in as a little brother," said Smith, who visited campus on Sunday. "He was showing me the ropes and boundaries of the city and the do's and don'ts of the school. He's been a real factor in my commitment to Louisville."

Smith said he knew Sosa before the recruiting process from playing in summer pickup games in New York. He also said he knew UofL forward Samardo Samuels, who attended high school at St.Benedict Prep in New Jersey, before coming to campus. Smith said it made committing to the Cards a bit easier.

Smith is a teammate of former Louisville recruit J.J. Moore, who is committed to Pittsburgh.

Here's the only highlight video of Smith available on the net (keep an eye out for me making a celebrity cameo as one of the guys playing defense).

The Louisville women's team is having a little difficulty adjusting to life without Angel McCoughtry. The 19th-ranked Cards squeaked by Dayton by two in their season-opener and then fell at Hartford last night, 62-50.

Freshman cornerback Zed Evans has reportedly decided to transfer.

Peyton Siva again made in appearance in SportsCenter's top ten plays last night. this time, it was his reverse lay-up at Arkansas which checked in at No. 7.

And finally, the Louisville soccer team begins its quest for a national championship tomorrow night in Bloomington against Indiana. No idea why the Cards have to go on the road to play a game against a team it's already beaten by four goals and is ranked much higher than, but then many of the intricacies of the beautiful game escape me.
