Samardo, Swop lead Red Team to victory in scrimmage

New, 22 comments

Reading this was the most pleasant sports experience I've had in quite some time.

Jared Swopshire scored 28 points while Samardo Samuels added 26 and snagged 14 rebounds to lead the Red Team to a 103-94 victory in an intrasquad scrimmage Thursday night.

The White Team's Preston Knowles (PRESTON. KNOWLES.) hit 9-of-11 shots in the first half and finished with a game-high 32 points.

"I think offensively, we're way ahead of schedule, and defensively we're way behind schedule," said U of L Coach Rick Pitino. "Offensively, we shoot the ball terrific, we pass the ball terrific, and we're in great condition for this time of year. It's to be expected that we're behind defensively because we lost three great defensive players from last year. I'm a little surprised how well our freshman are in condition and able to get through it. I'm real happy with the guys. I'm having a lot of fun coaching them because of their incredible desire to work. They're all basketball junkies."

Jerry Smith missd the scrimmage to witness the birth of his first child.

How can you tell it's been a long fall? You spend a solid five minutes analyzing the miscellaneous statistics at the bottom of a story on an intrasquad basketball scrimmage that was closed to the public.
