 Louisville won its seventh straight game and remains tied with Cincinnati atop the American Athletic Conference.

Rick Pitino has his Louisville Cardinals playing well heading into March again. Memphis coach Josh Pastner wants all his senior guards to wake up from their "zombie mode."

Saturday would be good timing too.

The 21st-ranked Tigers host No. 7 Louisville just 41 hours after both teams played Thursday night. Louisville won its seventh straight game and remains tied with Cincinnati atop the American Athletic Conference. The Cardinals can split the season series with a win Saturday after Memphis won in Louisville in January.

Memphis lost 77-68 at Houston, and Pastner called out struggling senior guards Chris Crawford, Joe Jackson and Geron Johnson. The trio combined for 15 points and eight turnovers.

Pastner says he warned them they are playing with fire walking around like as if in zombie mode.
