Default Louisville 77 Georgia Tech 54
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Jordan Nwora had 16 points and five of Louisville's 12 3-pointers, Anas Mahmoud added 12 points and Louisville added solid defense to rout Georgia Tech 77-54 Thursday night and end a three-game losing streak.

Playing their third game in six days and without leading scorer Deng Adel (ankle injury), the Cardinals got contributions from everybody in breaking their slide. A 13-1 run over 3:50 in the first half provided a 24-8 lead and the advantage reached 24 with 4:40 remaining.

Louisville (17-8, 7-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) finished 27 of 54 from the field and 12 of 20 from behind the arc. The Cardinals also forced 20 turnovers for 21 points.

Ray Spalding and Malik Williams each added 11 points as the Cardinals regulars provided balanced scoring and had 18 assists against just 10 turnovers.

Josh Okogie had 25 points and 10 rebounds for Georgia Tech (11-13, 4-7), which lost for sixth time in seven games.

BIG PICTURE

Georgia Tech: Other than the beginning of both halves, the young Yellow Jackets couldn't keep up with Louisville. While they won the boards 36-32 and made 7 of 13 from long range, they also shot just 36 percent and struggled against Louisville's active defense. Jose Alvarado added 11 points.

Louisville: The Cardinals needed this one after consecutive close losses, playing solid all around to halt their slide. In the first half alone, they shut out Tech 17-0 in bench points and 13-1 off 10 turnovers. A three-guard starting lineup of Darius Perry, VJ King and Quentin Snider (seven assists) helped pushed a quick pace, while Nwora was strong from long range. Spalding, despite playing on an injured ankle himself, and Mahmoud controlled the paint.

Louisville has another should win next before a rough stretch that could determine their post season. I hope they get some things figured as well as UK. I would like our state to be represented well in post season. And the way it looks right now Kentucky won't have team in it by sweet 16.
