Samuel scores 24 points on 9-of-10 shooting in his second career game
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Samardo Samuels says he isn't about to let his talent go to his head. Just in case, Louisville coach Rick Pitino is doing his best to keep the freshman star's ego under wraps.Shortly after Samuels polished off a nearly perfect 24-point night with a dunk in the third-ranked Cardinals' 81-54 victory over South Alabama in the Billy Minardi Classic on Sunday, Pitino made sure to remind Samuels all the things he doesn't do so well.
• Freshman Samardo Samuels (24 points) has made 17 of his first 22 career shot attempts.
• Earl Clark (12 points) reached double digits for the eighth consecutive game.
• South Alabama fell to 1-10 all-time against Louisville, including three consecutive losses.
