LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Montrezl Harrell scored 20 points and No. 7 Louisville used good shooting to blow out Louisiana-Lafayette 113-74 on Saturday.
What looked like a challenge midway through the first half for the Cardinals (8-1) ended with them reaching a season high for points, helped by 38-of-62 shooting from the field (61 percent). The Ragin' Cajuns (6-3) rallied from an 18-9 deficit to grab the last of several small leads at 41-39 before Louisville turned up the intensity on both ends.
The Ragin' Cajuns cooled off from 61 percent in the first half to shoot 7 of 31 in the second half.
Harrell led six Cardinals in double figures as Chris Jones added 19 points, Russ Smith 16, Wayne Blackshear 15, Terry Rozier 11 and Luke Hancock 10 to reach 1,000 in his career.
