Russ Smith has a penchant for ‘OH MY GOODNESS’ dunks against Kentucky, as evidenced by this thunderous jam in traffic during the first half Friday in the Sweet 16. Smith, who may or may not be 6-feet tall, scored 15 points in the first half – but missed six free throws – and Louisville, which led 18-5 early, leads by 34-31 at halftime. Kentucky’s Willie Cauley-Stein turned an ankle early in the game and will not return.
