LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 1 (UPI) -- Russ Smith and Peyton Siva combined for 44 points Saturday and No. 6 Louisville staged a rally to emerge with a 69-66 victory over Illinois State.

Smith netted 24 points and Siva added 20 for the Cardinals (6-1), who trailed most of the game but finally went ahead midway through the second half and then hung on as the Redbirds missed a pair of potential game-tying 3-pointers at the end.

Louisville rebounded after suffering its first defeat of the season Nov. 24 against Duke.

Illinois State (5-2) got 25 points from Tyler Brown and 20 from Jackie Carmichael in the loss.
