Snider grad Williams helps lead Louisville over Notre Dame

College Sports

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Snider graduate Malik Williams tallied 6 points and 10 rebounds in his first start of the season as Louisville topped Notre Dame 69-57 on Tuesday night.

Williams was playing in just his second game this season having suffered a major foot injury in the fall.

Carlik Jones scored 18 points, Jae’Lyn Withers had 12 points and 13 rebounds for Louisville.

Louisville was playing at home for the first time since Feb. 1, and did so without second-leading scorer David Johnson, averaging 12.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists, due to an unspecified illness.

The Cardinals won their sixth straight in the series — with Notre Dame’s last win coming during the 2016-17 season. Samuell Williamson also scored 12 points with eight rebounds for Louisville.

Juwan Durham led Notre Dame with 18 points.
