CINCINNATI, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Steve Logan scored 21 points Saturday as No. 8 Cincinnati buried cold-shooting Louisville, 77-50, to extend the nation's longest winning streak to 17 games.

It was just the second trip to the boisterous Shoemaker Center for Louisville Coach Rick Pitino, who is in his first season as Louisville coach. He guided Kentucky to a 75-71 win here during the 1990-91 campaign.

Saturday's matchup featured two of the winningest active coaches in the nation. Cincinnati's Bob Huggins is sixth in winning percentage with a mark of 486-169 and Pitino is seventh at 363-129.

The game also was a homecoming for Louisville assistant Mick Cronin, who served under Huggins the previous four seasons.

Field Williams added 18 points for the Bearcats (17-1, 5-0 CUSA), who have not lost since their season opener. Their 17-game run is the third longest in school history.

Reece Gaines had 19 points for the Cardinals (11-5, 2-3), who shot 27 percent from the field and dropped to 2-4 following an eight-game winning streak.
