Louisville crushes Cornell 99-54
Louisville started the game on a 22-2 run and never really looked back as the No. 3 Cardinals rolled Cornell 99-54 Friday night at the KFC Yum! Center.
The game was delayed by 20 minutes due to a lighting issue in the KFC Yum! Center, but once the game started Louisville wasted no time in running up a huge lead. After Cornell tied the score at 2-2 at the 19:10 mark, Louisville got a three and a pair of free throws from Russ Smith, a layup and a jumper by Chris Jones and a three by Wayne Blackshear to go up 14-2.
Back-to-back dunks by Smith and Montrezl Harrell brought the crowd to their feet. A steal and layup by Stephan Van Treese kept the run going and a layup by Kevin Ware, who entered the game at the 14:06 mark for his first playing time since his injury, capped the run.
The Cardinals led by as many as 42 points in the first half, outscored Cornell 20-1 in points off turnovers and 14-0 on fast break points. The Cornell Big Red finished the first half shooting 5 of 32 with 14 turnovers.
It was a full-team affair for the Cardinals as 13 different players scored including walk-on David Levitch, whose three in the final few minutes delighted the crowd.
Blackshear led all scorers with 20 points. Chane Behanan had 13 points and 12 rebounds. Luke Hancock had 12 points. Stephan Van Treese and Smith each scored 10, Jones had nine points and Harrell had seven points and 15 rebounds.
The Cardinals out-rebounded Cornell 49-37, outscored the Big Red 29-8 off turnovers and held Cornell to just 19 of 65 shooting.
