UofL MEN'S BASKETBALL | Cards Top Bellarmine in Final Exhibition of Season

11/07/2016 10:21 PM

The #13 Louisville men’s basketball team ended the exhibition part of its schedule by beating Bellarmine 81-60 on Monday night inside the KFC Yum! Center.

Deng Adel and Donovan Mitchell led the way for the Cardinals with 13 points each.

The duo was joined by two other Cards in double-figures, Tony Hicks (12) and Quentin Snider (11).

On the other side, the Knights were led in scoring by George Knott, who had 15 points on 6-7 shooting from the field.

The contest was a tale of two halves.

UofL took a 49-17 lead into the locker room at halftime. In the first half, Louisville shot 18-34 (52.9%) from the field, including 7-14 (50%) from three-point range. Meanwhile, Bellarmine only shot 3-16 (18.8%) from the field.

Bellarmine bounced back in the second half, outscoring the Cardinals 43-32 in the game’s final 20 minutes.

There was a scary moment in the second half when Bellarmine’s Daniel Ramser took a blow to the head after being inadvertently elbowed in the temple while trying to defend a Louisville shot. After laying on the court for a period of time, he was wheeled off the court on a stretcher.

Immediately after the game, Bellarmine head coach Scott Davenport said Ramser was more responsive at Norton Hospital.

cn|2 Sports will continue to update Ramser’s status as we learn more.

Louisville begins its regular season this Friday at home against Evansville. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET.

Bellarmine also plays on Friday. The Knights face Saginaw Valley State in Midland, MI. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. ET.
