LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Russ Smith scored 18 points, Peyton Siva added 14 and No. 12 Louisville shot 52 percent to run away from No. 25 Marquette 70-51 on Sunday.
The lopsided outcome was somewhat surprising considering what was at stake for both teams in the Big East.
Marquette had an opportunity to take a one-game lead on Syracuse, but the Golden Eagles were left settling for a first-place tie with the Orange. The Cardinals (18-4, 6-3), meanwhile, moved a half-game closer to both schools with their second straight win, remaining in a four-way tie for third.
The Cardinals finished 27 of 52 from the field after an 0-for-8 start while holding the Golden Eagles (15-5, 6-2) to 36 percent shooting (19 of 53). They also outrebounded Marquette 38-26.
Gorgui Dieng added eight points and eight rebounds for Louisville.
Vander Blue had 17 points and Trent Lockett 16 for the Golden Eagles, who have dropped two of their last four games.
NO. 23 MINNESOTA 62, IOWA 59
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Austin Hollins hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 11.6 seconds left, lifting Minnesota to a victory over Iowa.
Hollins finished with 17 points for the Gophers (17-5, 5-4 Big Ten). With Minnesota trailing 59-57, the 6-foot-4 Hollins got open in the corner on an inbound play and made the shot over 6-foot-1 Mike Gesell. Hollins then hounded Gesell on the other end to force the ball out of bounds.
Andre Hollins, who had 15 points, made two free throws to stretch the lead to three, and Gesell's tying attempt rolled off the front rim.
Gesell had 11 points, and Aaron White and Zach McCabe each added 10 for Iowa (14-8, 3-6).
