No. 11 Louisville makes quick work of SIU

(TSX / STATS) -- LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- No. 11 Louisville wasted no time in blitzing Southern Illinois 74-51 on Wednesday night at the KFC Yum! Center.

The Cardinals (8-1) scored the first 13 points and ultimately got 15 points from senior center Mangok Mathiang and 12 points and 12 rebounds from sophomore forward Deng Adel, his first career double-double, during the first game of a five-game homestand.

"We had guys looking to run," Adel said. "We got some quick, easy points and threw it into the bigs a lot. Mangok ignited that run with a couple of easy post-ups. That's what we need to continue to do more."
