No. 4 Louisville Plays Poorly But Survives UNC Wilmington

(4) Louisville 68
UNC-Wilmington 57

Final from Louisville, Kentucky

Game recap by UL:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Terry Rozier and Montrezl Harrell each scored 19 points and played big roles down the stretch in helping No. 4 Louisville survive UNC Wilmington 68-57 on Sunday night.

A game that the Cardinals seemed to be gaining control of with an 18-point lead early in the second half was soon cut to 52-50 as the Seahawks went on a 15-0 run over 4:07.

That's when Rozier asserted himself, scoring six of Louisville's next 10 points in a run that included Harrell's basket. UNCW cooled off after that, missing 10 of its final 13 shots to lose the first meeting between the schools.

Harrell also grabbed 17 rebounds, and Wayne Blackshear scored 11 points for the Cardinals (9-0). They won despite shooting just 42 percent from the field and making only one of 13 3-point attempts.
