LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville basketball team returned home to the KFC Yum! Center on Wednesday, and Central Arkansas didn't do much to stand in the way of a third-straight victory.

The Cardinals (6-2) rode a hot shooting night and some suffocating defense to a 86-41 win. Jordan Nwora led U of L with 21 points and five rebounds. Steven Enoch added 16 points and nine rebounds, and V.J. King finished with 17 points, six rebounds and four assists.

The game, though, was only a brief respite before a nationally televised game Saturday afternoon at Indiana University.
