Louisville and Memphis have been rivals for a long time. They were together in the Metro, in Conference USA, and now in the American Athletic.
The Tigers got a big victory at the Yum Center Thursday. Josh Pastner’s team closed on a 7-0 run to get the W. I love watching the passion and intensity of Joe Jackson, and he came through down the stretch.
This was a big game for the Cardinals. They were seeking a quality win to enhance their resume. Russ Smith and Luke Hancock tried, but they fell just short.
