LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Edgar Sosa and Jerry Smith scored 17 points apiece to pace six Louisville players in double figures as the Cardinals routed Western Kentucky 102-75 on Saturday.

Louisville avenged last season's loss to the Hilltoppers by shooting 55.6 percent (35-for-63) from the field and converting 25 Western Kentucky turnovers into 36 points in the Billy Minardi Classic.

Samardo Samuels added 14 points and nine rebounds for the Cardinals (7-3), while Terrence Jennings tallied 11 points off the bench. Jared Swopshire and Kyle Kuric added 10 points apiece for Louisville.

Steffphon Pettigrew scored 23 points to lead the Hilltoppers (5-4) and A.J. Slaughter added 16.

Western Kentucky played without second-leading scorer and leading rebounder Sergio Kerusch. The 6-foot-5 junior forward, who is averaging 13.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game, broke his foot in practice on Friday.
