Late surge lifts Memphis past Louisville

Memphis, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Crawford highlighted a late Tigers run with a go-ahead 3-pointer as No. 21 Memphis rallied for a 71-66 victory over seventh-ranked Louisville in a wild American Athletic Conference clash at FedExForum.

Louisville appeared poised to take sole possession of first place in the AAC, only to have Memphis end the game on a 14-1 flurry to earn a sweep of the season series.

Michael Dixon Jr. scored a team-high 18 points off the bench, Geron Johnson chipped in with 15, Austin Nichols added 14 and Crawford had 12 for the Tigers (22-7, 11-5 AAC), who bounced back from a loss to Houston.

Memphis has yet to lose back-to-back games this season.

Montrezl Harrell led the Cardinals with 25 points and 12 rebounds, and Russ Smith totaled 19 points, five boards and five assists while battling through foul trouble.

Louisville (24-5, 13-3) had its seven-game winning streak snapped and still sits tied with Cincinnati atop the league standings.
