Player Goofs On Coach During Live Interview

March 18, 2012 by staff 

Player Goofs On Coach During Live Interview, Moments after turning in one of his finest performances of the season on college basketball’s grandest stage, Louisville guard Russ Smith celebrated in a way only he could.

Smith gave Rick Pitino bunny ears on national television as the legendary Cardinals coach was explaining to a TBS sideline reporter how his team had defeated New Mexico 59-56 to reach the Sweet 16.

The postgame antics from Smith made for an ideal finish to a day that perfectly summed up the erratic yet irreverent Brooklyn-born guard.

On the one hand, the 5-foot-10 Smith botched a breakaway dunk and briefly got benched for mouthing off during a huddle. On the other hand, he also scored a team-high 17 points and sank all three of his attempts from behind the arc to help propel the Cardinals to a Sweet 16 matchup with either Michigan State or Louisville next week.
