Snider and Mahmoud score 17 to lead Cards to 102-59 win over Bryant

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Quentin Snider scored a season-high 17 points to lead Louisville past Bryant 102-59 in a Gotham Classic matchup on Monday night.
    
Snider entered the game shooting just 35.1 percent for the season and just 9 of 38 from beyond the 3-point arc. He found his stroke against the Bulldogs as he made 6 of 8 shots, including 4 of 6 3-pointers.
    
Deng Adel and Anas Mahmoud also scored 17 for the Cardinals (7-2), who shot a season-best 55.7 percent. Mahmoud matched a career high and scored all his points in the first half.
    
In losing their sixth straight, the Bulldogs (1-10) never led after the opening minute. Still, they managed to keep it close, and cut the Cardinals' advantage to 31-30 after Sabastian Townes' layup with 5:09 left in the first half.
    
Mahmoud's putback on Louisville's next possession started a 15-2 run and, from that point, it was all Cardinals. Louisville ended the half making their last eight shots to lead by 16 at the break.
    
Ikenna Ndugba led the Bulldogs with 17 points.
    
BIG PICTURE
    
Bryant: The Bulldogs, who played no one taller than 6-7, entered the game ranked No. 333 in the country in field goal percentage (39.7 percent). They had success early on against the much-taller Cardinals, making 12 of their first 21 shots to keep it close.
    
Louisville: The Cardinals, who played six players 6-7 or taller, eventually used their size to their advantage and notched their biggest margin of victory of the season. They enjoyed a 46-29 rebounding edge, blocked seven shots and outscored the Bulldogs 50-26 in the paint.
    
UP NEXT
    
Bryant: The Bulldogs conclude their portion of the Gotham Classic when they host Siena on Sunday. Louisville beat the Saints 86-60 last Wednesday.
    
Louisville: The Cardinals travel to New York for Saturday's Gotham Classic main event, where they will face Memphis at Madison Square Garden.
