Senior guard Jerry Smith and sophomore center Terrence Jennings each pleaded guilty to one count of resisting law enforcement and will be on probation for a year. They must complete 40 hours of community service and pay about $500 in fines.

The two were arrested Oct. 11 after they tussled with officers outside a southern Indiana restaurant. Jennings was stunned twice with a Taser.

The two offered unsolicited apologies to the officers during their arraignment Monday morning.

A Louisville spokesman said coach Rick Pitino had no comment. Pitino said last week the matter would be handled internally.
