No. 20 Louisville routs Gardner-Webb 78-49


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Preston Knowles scored a career-high 24 points and No. 20 Louisville bounced back from its first loss of the season by dominating Gardner-Webb 78-49 on Saturday.

Freshman center Gorgui Dieng added eight points, 11 rebounds and seven blocks in his first career start while reserve Mike Marra broke out of a prolonged slump to score 10 points as the Cardinals (9-1) breezed past the overmatched Runnin' Bulldogs.

Laron Buggs led Gardner-Webb (6-8) with 16 points, but the Runnin' Bulldogs couldn't find the same magic they used three years ago when they knocked off Kentucky.

Knowles and Dieng made sure of it. Louisville used a 20-0 run midway through the first half to take control and had little trouble the rest of the way to get back on track after being upset by Drexel on Tuesday.
