Final Score: (9) Louisville 69, Southern Miss 38

Louisville, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Jones netted 18 points and Montrezl Harrell added 11 points and nine rebounds as No. 9 Louisville routed Southern Miss, 69-38, on Friday night.

Russ Smith tallied 11 points, six assists and four steals for the Cardinals (6-1), who lost to North Carolina on Sunday in the Hall of Fame Tipoff Tournament.

"We did a very, very good job defensively, rebounding the ball and playing intelligently. So, I am real proud of the guys," Louisville head coach Rick Pitino said.

Michael Craig had nine points to lead the Golden Eagles (6-1).

"That was a tail whipping," Southern Miss head coach Donnie Tyndall said.

Terry Rozier nailed a pair of triples and Wayne Blackshear added one from distance as Louisville raced out to a 13-0 start at a little more than five minutes into the game.

The Cardinals led by as many as 22 in the first half before settling for their 21-point advantage at the break.
