Louisville Rolls To Fourth Straight Conference Championship Game Appearance

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

For the fourth straight year, Louisville will spend the Saturday night before Selection Sunday playing for a conference championship.

Russ Smith produced the third-highest single game point total in U of L basketball history by dropping 42, as the Cards rolled over Houston to a 94-65 win the AAC semifinals. Also, Stephan Van Treese made a three.

I don't think I need to say anything else.
