With the first half of play coming to a close, Colorado State hasn't been able to put up much of a fight against Louisville thus far. The second-seed Cardinals have come out blazing, led by guard Russ Smith's 18 points. After a number of upsets during yesterday's tournament games, Louisville will be looking to stand strong an advance as the second half begins.

Smith is in the adidas D Rose 3.5, which is the latest signature model for NBA superstar Derrick Rose. Although Derrick hasn't been able to compete in the D Rose 3.5 himself, players like Russ Smith are helping to make the Three Stripes model shine. Utilizing both SprintFrame and SpringWeb tech, the sneaker is designed to be quick and supportive. High-impact EVA cushioning keeps players comfortable during landings, and its synthetic leather upper is durable and lightweight. Pick them up today for $160.
