Kentucky ended Louisville’s dreams of repeating as national champions, but apparently Cardinals point guard Russ Smith isn’t holding much of a grudge. We all heard how he went and personally congratulated his rival in their locker room after his final collegiate game. But it also looks like he attended last night’s Final Four games in the Kentucky fan section. He also wore a cowboy hat, because Texas.
Remember – all of this rivalry stuff is mostly for the fans. A lot of players on these teams know each other well and root for each other, regardless of school affiliation. Good on Smith for supporting whoever he wants to.
