LOUISVILLE, Ky. (CBS/AP) — Chris Smith scored 18 points and No. 6 Louisville got off to a fast start to beat Long Beach State 79-66 on Monday night for the short-handed Cardinals’ 14th straight victory at the KFC Yum! Center.

Louisville (6-0) scored the first eight points of the game and took a double-digit lead early in the first half, but couldn’t pull away from Long Beach State (2-4) until the closing minute even though the 49ers never got closer than five points in the second half.

Freshman Chane Behanan had 13 points and seven rebounds for Louisville, which has dealt with multiple injuries so far and was without another player when reserve guard Elisha Justice didn’t dress after he broke his nose.

Larry Anderson scored 17 points for the 49ers before fouling out.

Long Beach State had already won at Pittsburgh this season.
