01/19 21:31 CST Curry returns to help Louisville top Boston College 67-54 Curry returns to help Louisville top Boston College 67-54 Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) --- Sidney Curry returned from injury to score 13 points, Noah Locke and Jae'Lyn Withers each added 10 points and Louisville beat Boston College 67-54 on Wednesday night to end a three-game losing streak. The Atlantic Coast Conference game started 75 minutes late as workers repaired a leak in the north end of Louisville's KFC Yum! Center arena. Both teams then started cold from the field after the delayed tipoff, combining to make just 7 of their first 23 and 4 and 4 of 12 from the foul line. Louisville (11-7, 5-3) eventually warmed up to lead 30-28 at the break thanks to Withers, a former starter who came off the bench to make his first three attempts and finish 4 of 6 from the field with eight rebounds. Curry, who missed Saturday's loss at Pittsburgh with an ankle injury, and Locke took it from there soon after halftime. They made consecutive three-point plays for a 44-37 lead and Louisville finally reached double digits on Withers' jumper with 4:45 remaining. Makai Ashton-Langford scored 22 points for the Eagles (7-9, 2-4), who were coming off an historic comeback win at Clemson. BC stayed within single digits much of the game but shot just 29% and couldn't get closer than eight after the break. The Eagles edged Louisville 43-42 on the boards. Louisville went on to finish 46% from the field as it bounced back from a 33% showing at at Pitt. Curry made all six attempts from the field and grabbed seven rebounds. Locke was just 3-of-10 shooting, but were 3s and helped the Cardinals beat the Eagles for the second consecutive season. Boston College hosts Virginia Tech on Saturday, while Louisville hosts Notre Dame. ___ More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/hub/College-basketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25
