Hot start leads to Cards' big win over Grand Canyon

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Damion Lee matched his season-high with 24 points, Trey Lewis added 16 and No. 24 Louisville used a 26-3 first-half run to break away from Grand Canyon and coast to a 111-63 blowout on Saturday.

Three days after letting a lead slip away late in a 71-67 loss at No. 3 Michigan State, the Cardinals (6-1) rebounded big against the overmatched Antelopes (6-1).

Buoyed by 64 percent shooting in the first half, Louisville turned a 12-12 game into a 38-15 lead and poured it on to break 100 points for the first time since Feb. 16, 2014, against Rutgers.

Lee shot 7 of 13 from the field, including four 3-pointers, as Louisville made 38 of 70 for their sixth 50-percent shooting effort in seven games.

Joshua Braun scored 15 points for Grand Canyon, which shot 37 percent and was outrebounded 55-20.
