Russ Smith has been plagued with injuries in his freshman year at UofL. He was injured to start the year, and hasn’t seemed to fully recovery. He missed the last road trip due to a concussion, and missed a few games before that because of an ankle injury. In the little bit of time we’ve seen him on the court, he has shown some promise. He is very quick, with very good handles and court vision. With most freshman point guards, he sometimes tries to do too much but he definitely isn’t shy. It’ll be interesting to see what he can do when he finally gets healthy and starts to see some minutes. He has a chance to learn from a very talented point guard in Peyton Siva, so hopefully he takes advantage of the opportunity and turns into the player he appears capable of being.
