Louisville gets by St. John's, 75-68

LOUISVILLE (AP) - Jared Swopshire scored 14 points and
Louisville defeated St. John's 75-68 on Saturday.
The Cardinals (12-4, 3-0 Big East) and the Red Storm (10-5, 0-3)
were forced to grind the first half out due to sloppy ball-handling
and poor shooting. Both teams were able to sustain small runs, with
Dwight Hardy's 3-pointer at the buzzer to give St. Johns a 32-28
halftime lead.
Louisville shot 33 percent (10-for-30) in the first half,
including 16 percent (2-for-12) from 3-point range. The Red Storm
managed to shoot 39 percent (11-for-28).
The second half was played close until a 12-1 run by the
Cardinals with midway through the second half gave Louisville a
58-46 lead at the 7:51 mark. St. Johns would mount a late rally to
close the final scoring margin to seven.
Jerry Smith led the Cardinals with 16 points.
D.J. Kennedy led all scorers with 20 points for the Red Storm.
