By Sam Draut
The University of Louisville men’s basketball team held their second intra-squad scrimmage on Saturday at the
KFC YUM! Center. The Red team defeated the White team 70-65.
The Red team was led by guards Chris Jones and Terry Rozier. Jones finished with a game-high 24 points on 8-
of-15 shooting, he also added seven rebounds and four assists. Rozier scored 14 points to go with eight rebounds
and five assists.
U of L head coach Rick Pitino was impressed by the newcomers rebounding ability.
“For Chris being 5’9” and Terry being 6’1” you get 15 rebounds from the one and two spot, which is terrific, the
guards didn’t rebound on the White team,” Pitino said.
Despite having Chane Behanan and Montrezl Harrell, the White team was outrebounded 42 to 24.
Russ Smith led the White team with 22 points and eight assists, but also committed nine turnovers.
“He didn’t play well today,” Pitino said. “Russ didn’t get a break. He was trying to take on everyone by himself.”
Harrell finished with 14 points and six rebounds while Behanan added 13 points and nine rebounds.
“It was much better defense this week than last week, and hopefully we will combine to see better things next
scrimmage,” Pitino said.
The Cardinals final intra-squad scrimmage is at 1 P.M. on Sat. Oct. 19 at the KFC YUM! Center.
