LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Quentin Snider scored 20 points, Damion Lee added 14 and No. 17 Louisville had no problem with Florida State in an 84-65 victory on Wednesday night.

Louisville (15-3, 4-1 ACC) was rarely challenged in winning its second straight Atlantic Coast Conference game, shooting 48 percent while outrebounding Florida State 44-36. Chinanu Onuaku had 14 rebounds and 11 points for his fifth straight double-double, all coming in league play.

Freshman guard Donovan Mitchell added 13 points for the Cardinals, including a monstrous one-handed dunk in the first half that charged a crowd of 21,349 in the late-evening game. Leading 22-15 at that point, Louisville never looked back in building a lead that reached 32.

Malik Beasley scored 23 points and Devon Bookert had 18 in his first start of the season for Florida State (12-6, 2-4), which had its two-game winning streak stopped.
