The Louisville Cardinals were just too good for the FIU Panthers Saturday night in their first road game of the season, 85-56. Russ Smith led the Cards with 18 points, draining four shots from behind the arc.

 

Former Card Rakeem Buckles wanted so much to have a great game, he did have 13 point but was 4/17 from the court. He also grabbed nine rebounds.

Louisville will take on Kentucky next Saturday in Rupp Arena at 4pm.

The Panther’s court is a little different. It is kind of like a beach, with palm trees and what is supposed to be water.

Russ Smith has some ideas about the Yum! Center.
