 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Chris Jones scored 18 points and backcourt mate Terry Rozier added 17 as No. 7 Louisville overcame poor shooting to beat Marshall 85-67 Friday night.

Forward Wayne Blackshear had 16 points, 12 in the first half, for the Cardinals (3-0).

Star forward Montrezl Harrell sat most of the second half with four fouls. He went to bench 2½ minutes after the break with Louisville up 43-31 and returned with 5:47 left and the Cardinals ahead by 13.

Senior forward Shawn Smith led the Thundering Herd (3-1) with 16 points.

Louisville shot 27 of 70 (39 percent). The Cardinals started out only 7 for 23 and missed all 10 of their 3s in the first half.

It was the first time the Cardinals failed to make a 3 in a half since their round of eight win against Duke en route to the 2013 national title, a first half more remembered for Kevin Ware's gruesome leg injury.
