TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Wayne Blackshear scored 16 points to pace a balanced offense that carried No. 12 Louisville to an 86-47 rout of cold-shooting South Florida on Wednesday night.
Luke Hancock and Montrezl Harrell had 14 points apiece for the Cardinals (17-3, 6-1 American Athletic Conference), who shot 52.2 percent from beyond the 3-point arc and just under 51 percent overall.
South Florida (10-9, 1-5) lost to a ranked opponent for the second time in less than a week, shooting just 36 percent from the field. The Bulls, coming off a seven-point loss to AAC leader Cincinnati, turned the ball over 23 times while allowing Louisville to outscore them 35-6 off miscues.
Chris Perry led USF with 10 points before fouling out. Victor Rudd was limited to six - nine below his team-leading average - on 3-of-8 shooting.
