Cards to honor 3 seniors
Louisville will honor its three seniors — Kyle Kuric, Chris Smith and Jared Swopshire — at Wednesday's game against South Florida.
Kuric and Smith both joined the Cardinals as walk-ons and Swopshire will graduate and transfer after the season ends with a year of eligibility remaining after missing all of 2010-11 with a groin injury. Coach Rick Pitino said Swopshire hopes to get more playing time somewhere else.
Kuric leads the team with a 13-point average.
Smith laughed again about the often-told story that Pitino initially thought he was a ball boy when he transferred from Manhattan, but he has turned into a starter that's averaging 10.2 points.
