LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Terry Rozier made clutch jumpers down the stretch, including a big 3-pointer with 46 seconds remaining, to help No. 5 Louisville survive No. 14 Ohio State 64-55 Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
    
The Cardinals (6-0) were in danger of blowing a 17-point halftime lead before Rozier made three straight baskets in the final minutes including the key shot from behind the arc to provide a 59-53 lead.
    
Anas Mahmoud and Montrezl Harrell each added a free throw before Rozier made a steal with 16 seconds left and hit a foul shot to finish with 11 points.
