On Saturday at the KFC Yum! Center, the University of Louisville & its fans will host a “RED OUT” for the final home game for 4 fantastic seniors. All 4 of these guys are NATIONAL CHAMPIONS and all four contributed to the 2013 NCAA Championship run that ended with College Basketball’s biggest prize in Atlanta this past April.
The victory tour of the National Champions is entering Senior Night the same way as last year, 25-5. It remains to be seen if this group can return to a 3 consecutive Final Four, but even if this group flames out these stars have burned bright during their time with the Cards.

The Cards were 37-15 during Smith’s tenure, including a 23-3 record during his final 2 years.
Hakeem registered 290 tackles during his career and was an excellent open field tackler, fearless against the run. Former Defensive Coordinator once said of Smith: “He isn’t too fast, he isn’t too big, but he’s there to do the job. We don’t have anyone more reliable.”
