Chris Smith matched his personal best with 19 points to reach 1,000 for his career and No. 5 Louisville beat IUPUI 90-60 Wednesday night for the Cardinals' 16th straight victory at home. Gorgui Dieng hit all eight of his shots to set a career high with 18 points to go along with 12 rebounds as the Cardinals started 8-0 for the second straight season. Louisville's schedule hasn't been too difficult with only one road game so far before the Cardinals travel to face No. 1 Kentucky in a Dec. 31 showdown. In the meantime, they're continuing to get healthier with the return of forward Rakeem Buckles. He hadn't played since tearing a ligament in his right knee in February and had a three-point play during a key 15-0 second half run that sealed the victory. Stephen Thomas led IUPUI (2-8) with 14 points.
