The Louisville men’s basketball team will be without star guard Russ Smith next season, but it appears that the Cardinals will be just fine with point guard Chris Jones.
Jones, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound junior, was one of three Louisville players–Montrezl Harrell, Terry Rozier the others– to participate in the annual Adidas Nations tournament in California earlier this month. Jones suffered a leg injury during the action on Aug. 7, but he seemed to have quite the showing before that.
Check out Jones’ impressive performance:
Jones, who averaged 10 points and nearly three assists per game last season, has been having quite the offseason.
Earlier this summer, Rick Pitino called Jones “unguardable” and “as good as guard as I’ve coached.”
Jones is expected to have fully recovered from the injury by mid-September.
