CINCINNATI, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Russ Smith scored 10 points Saturday, including the game-winning jump shot that lifted fifth-ranked Louisville to a 58-57 win over No. 9 Cincinnati on the road.

Smith took a pass from Tarry Rozier and knocked down a jumper from the left wing with 0.3 seconds to play to steal the win for the Cardinals (23-4, 12-2 ACC), whose winning streak was extended to 10 games.

Montrezl Harrell led Louisville with 21 points. Rozier scored 11 off the bench.
