Cards top St. John's, stay unbeaten in Big East

It certainly wasn't the most aesthetically pleasing contest, but Louisville answered the bell when they needed to and topped St. John's to move to 3-0 in the Big East.

Jared Swopshire continued his rapid evolution by posting a career-high 15 points, Big East Jerry Smith continued to play like Big East Jerry Smith and scored a team-high 16 points, and Preston Knowles was Preston Knowles.


The Cards have essentially held serve to opn conference play, emerging victorious in a trio of games most people expected them to win. It's a good thing, since U of L's next six games include trips to Pitt, Seton Hall and West Virginia and home dates against Cincinnati, Connecticut and Villanova.

It's about to get fun.
