LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Kevin Ware scored quickly in his return for No. 3 Louisville and the defending NCAA champion Cardinals posted their school-record 19th straight win, beating Cornell 99-54 Friday night.
 
   Ware shattered his leg during last season's Midwest Regional final. He played in an exhibition this season, then sat out the first two games for the Cardinals (3-0).
 
   Ware had five points and two rebounds in 13 minutes. He scored just 16 seconds after checking in with 14:05 left in the first half, splitting defenders on a drive to cap a 20-point run that put Louisville ahead 22-2.
 
   Wayne Blackshear led the Cardinals (3-0) with 20 points, hitting 4 of 5 3-pointers. Chane Behanan added 13 points and 11 rebounds.
 
   Nolan Cressler scored 10 points for Cornell (0-4).
