Drop in any barber shop and sports is usually a hot topic.
That's especially true these days at Big Russ' Barber Shop in Harlem, N.Y., where folks are buzzing about the owner's son - Louisville guard Russ Smith.
Of course, they're somewhat biased toward the Brooklyn native, but they're not alone in their praise of the 6-foot-1 guard.
Smith, considered the best player on the top-seeded team in the NCAA tournament, has garnered attention for his dominating play on both ends of the floor. He is averaging 25.0 points and 5.0 steals per game.
Playing the best he has all year, Smith and the Cardinals (31-5) will take on 12th-seeded Oregon (29-8) in the round of 16 Friday in Indianapolis.
