STORRS, Conn., Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Montrezl Harrell's double-double of 18 points and 13 rebounds Saturday sent No. 14 Louisville to a third straight win, 76-64 over Connecticut.

Harrell also had three blocks and Russ Smith added 23 points for the Cardinals (16-3, 5-1 AAC), who put the game away with an 11-0 run starting in the second half.

Luke Hancock helped out with 13 points.

The Huskies (14-4, 2-3) got 30 points from Shabazz Napier.

UConn Coach Kevin Ollie was tossed from the game and escorted from the court by a police officer during Louisville's second-half run after arguing with officials over a non-call.

Ollie objected when no whistle was forthcoming when the Huskies' Niels Giffey was run into by Louisville's Wayne Blackshear.
