Wayne Blackshear scored a career-high 19 points and hit a 3-pointer to ignite a 23-2 run early in the second half that carried No. 11 Louisville to a 68-48 victory over Rutgers.

Russ Smith added 14 points and six rebounds and fellow guard Peyton Siva had nine points and seven assists as the Cardinals (19-4, 7-3 Big East) won its third straight game by holding Rutgers to a season-low point total.

It was the seventh time they have held an opponent under 50 points this season.
