High flying, hot shooting Louisville rolls over Florida State, 84-65

Facing a Florida State team with both momentum and a pair of projected first round NBA Draft picks, Louisville may have given its most complete performance of the season in an 84-65 victory Wednesday night at the KFC Yum Center.

I could probably just show you this ...

... and stop the post right there, but I'm not going to do that.

Louisville outclassed the Seminoles from start to finish thanks in large part to the play of Quentin Snider, who knocked down 8 of 12 shots from the field on his way to a team-high 20 points. Damion Lee and Donovan Mitchell chipped in 14 and 13 points, respectively, while Trey Lewis came off the bench to hit all three of his field goal attempts and dish out a game-high five assists.

Chinanu Onuaku also kept his ACC-long double--double streak by posting 14 rebounds and 11 points. It was the fifth straight game the big man has gone for at least 10 and 10.

While future millionaire Malik Beasley did get his with 23 points, he also turned the ball over six times. Fellow freshman star Dwayne Bacon produced a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, but he was just 4 of 17 from the field. FSU's third leading scorer, sophomore guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes, was on the bench but did not see the court because of the infamous "coaches' decision."

Here's your final box score for a game that wasn't as close as the still-lopsided final score would indicate:
