Recap: Temple vs. Louisville

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Montrezl Harrell posted a career-high 22 points with 10 rebounds and four blocked shots in 13th-ranked Louisville's 82-58 rout of Temple at Liacouras Center.

Russ Smith added 15 points and Wayne Blackshear scored 13 off the bench for Louisville (20-4, 9-2 AAC), which led start-to-finish in this one. Luke Hancock chipped in 11 points in the Cardinals' third straight win.

"He's just got a great basketball body," Temple head coach Fran Dunphy said of Harrell. "He was hard for us to guard."

The tilt was originally slated for Thursday, but a snowstorm in Philadelphia pushed it back a day.

Will Cummings paced Temple (6-17, 1-10) with 16 points in the setback. Anthony Lee scored 14 as the Owls dropped their fourth in a row since earning their lone conference win over Rutgers on Jan. 29.

Smith knocked down a jumper 18 seconds into the contest, Hancock followed with a triple a minute in and it was smooth sailing the rest of the way for the visiting Cardinals.

Harrell's personal 6-0 burst out of the first media timeout made it 15-4. Another slam from the sophomore at 5:11 highlighted a 17-2 run, which also included a pair of Hancock 3s, and gave Louisville a 47-20 advantage.

Louisville owned a 52-25 halftime margin.

Temple's Dalton Pepper capped a 7-0 run that spanned both halves with a layup 1:06 into the second half, but the Owls still trailed by 23. Louisville regrouped out of a timeout, netting eight of the next 10 points to reclaim control.

The lead ballooned to 36 points after Smith's three-point play at 8:59.

Game Notes

Louisville has won seven of eight overall and six straight on the road ... Chris Jones finished with nine points and a game-high five assists for Louisville ... Louisville's reserves outscored Temple's, 23-7 ... The Owls shot just 37.3 percent (22-of-59) from the field.

Dorm Report: Rooting for the lesser of two evils

I really do try my best not to hate anyone, seeing as how that word can be thrown around rather easily, which is why it was so tough watching the Florida State-Louisville game on Thursday night.
