Russ Smith Tops Chris Jones For Adidas Nations Championship

USA TODAY Sports

The highlight of the championship game between the college counselors at the adidas Nations camp on Sunday came down to a head-to-head showdown between what will likely be Louisville's starting backcourt in three months.

Chris Jones dropped a game-high 26 points, but it was Russ Smith and his 23 points that wound up leading his team to the promised land of an adidas Nations championship.

No video of the showdown has emerged, but the firsthand accounts make you wish you could purchase tickets to some of the Yum Center practices this fall.

I Jones wasn't D-I ready before having to face Russ every day in practice, he sure as hell will be by the time the season rolls around.
