Gill celebrates birthday with 15 in 82-57 UofL win over FIU

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Anton Gill scored a career-high 15 points, Montrezl Harrell had 13 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 5 Louisville rolled to an 82-57 win over Florida International on Friday night.

The Cardinals (7-0) started slow before an 18-0 run in the first half and strong start after halftime overtook the Panthers. Gill shot 3 for 5 on 3-pointers as Louisville matched a season high by shooting 40 percent (8 of 20) from behind the arc.

The Cardinals forced 25 turnovers, one shy of their season high in an 87-26 rout of Savannah State. It was the third consecutive double-double for Harrell as five Cardinals scored 11 or more points.

Dennis Mavin led FIU (5-4) with 15 points and Marco Porcher Jimenez added 13 while shooting 4 for 6 on 3s.

The Panthers held Louisville to eight points in the game's opening 10 minutes before Louisville sprung to 24-10 lead.
