Perhaps overlooked a little following Edgar Sosa's heroics on Sunday, twin senior Jerry Smith had one of his strongest games this season. He went 4 for 5 from the field, 12 points, 1 assist and 2 steals.
I've worn my heart on my sleave for awhile now, and as much as I try to maintain some quasi-journalistic integrity by acknowledging his struggles, Jerry's my favorite player and has been for 4 years. My dad hails from Wauwatosa, and not only is that a fun word to say, but Jerry brings infectious enthusiasm whenever he laces up the high-tops. You win some, you lose some, but in the long run you end up loving and remembering those players that loved playing for UofL. In that regard, Jerry Smith has more than earned his co-captaincy. It's coming to an end, Jerry, quickly, but hopefully not too quickly. Make each minute count, and may fist pumps fall like rain.
