Louisville Cardinals senior guard Russ Smith is having a terrific season, putting up 18.1 points, 4.8 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game. But it's what he did off the court recently that has him in the spotlight.

Smith went to watch a game at Manual High School in Kentucky when freshman girls basketball player Tonysha Curry came up to him, according to Steven Andress from Curry's homecoming escort had ditched her, so she asked Smith if he could be her escort.

Watch the video above as Smith helped make one girl's day.
