PITTSBURGH (AP) - Anas Mahmoud scored 14 points to lead Louisville to a 94-60 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Mahmoud scored eight of his points in the first half, when he shot 4 of 6 from the floor and the Cardinals opened up a 26-point lead over the hapless Panthers, which fell to 0-13 in Atlantic Coast Conference play.
V.J. King and Malik Wiliams also had 14 points, while Jordan Nwora (13) and Quentin Snider (11) joined them in double figures. Louisville shot 63 percent from the floor and 53 percent from beyond the 3-point line. The Cardinals had 23 assists on 34 field goals, led by Darius Perry's seven helpers.
Pitt (8-18) was led by freshman Shamiel Stevenson with 15 points. Parker Stewart added 12 and Jared Wilson-Frame 11.
The Cardinals (18-8, 8-5) have won 11 straight games in the series. They set the record for Pitt's largest margin of defeat at home last season by winning by 55 points.
Louisville: The Cardinals played their second straight game without Deng Adel, who is averaging 15.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. He has a left ankle sprain. Offensively, Mahmoud has stepped in to fill the void. Averaging just over seven points per game in conference play, he scored 12 points against Georgia Tech last week in the first game Adel missed.
Pitt: The Panthers offensive struggles continue to mount. After scoring just 48 points at Clemson on Thursday, the Panthers followed it up with 60 points on 35 percent shooting against the Cardinals. Pitt has cracked the 60-point mark just four times in conference play.
Louisville: Will return home to play No. 21 North Carolina on Saturday. The Cardinals are 2-0 against the Tar Heels at the KFC Yum! Center since joining the ACC in 2014.
Pitt: Hosts Boston College on Tuesday. The Panthers have won 11 straight games against the Eagles.
