LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Russ Smith scored 19 points and No. 11 Louisville overcame foul troubles to run away from South Florida 80-54 on Tuesday night.

Luke Hancock added 16 points and Montrezl Harrell added 14 points despite four fouls as the Cardinals (22-4, 11-2 American Athletic Conference) won their tuneup before Saturday's rematch at first place and No. 7 Cincinnati. Louisville's fifth consecutive lopsided win also completed a season sweep of the Bulls (12-15, 3-11).

Doing so required surviving a second-half stretch with Harrell and Wayne Blackshear sidelined with four fouls each, not to mention cold shooting after a 54-percent first half. Both later returned to help the Cardinals steadily pull away, with Harrell adding a late basket-shaking dunk.

Freshman Terry Rozier scored 13 points for Louisville, which shot 48 percent.

Victor Rudd had 27 points but was USF's only double-digit scorer on a night it shot 49 percent from the field.
