Isaiah Wong leads Miami’s upset of No. 16 Louisville

Isaiah Wong scored a career-high 30 points as the host Miami Hurricanes upset the 16th-ranked Louisville Cardinals 78-72 in an ACC game on Saturday night.

Wong seemed to sprain his ankle with 3:18 left in the game when he was stepped on by teammate Nysier Brooks. That would have been horrible news for injury-plagued Miami, but Wong remained in the game and got a dunk on the next Hurricanes’ possession.

Miami (6-6, 2-5 ACC) also got 16 points from Matt Cross and 15 points and 10 rebounds from Elijah Olaniyi. Brooks had eight points and a team-high 11 rebounds.

Wong made 12-of-20 shots from the floor, with many on twisting and turning drives, and he added seven rebounds and six assists. He went 3-for-5 on 3-pointers and also 3-of-5 from the free-throw line.

Louisville (9-2, 4-1 ACC) was led by Carlik Jones, who had 25 points and a game-high seven assists. Jae’lyn Wither added 18 points and 11 rebounds, making 8-of-9 shots from the floor, including a 3-pointer.

The Hurricanes were without five injured players, including star freshman Earl Timberlake, who was added to the list for this game. They were also missing Chris Lykes and Kam McGusty – those were two of their top three scorers last season – as well as Rodney Miller and Sam Waardenburg.
