Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Joe Jackson and Shaq Goodwin each scored 15 points and No. 24 Memphis rallied late for a 73-67 upset of No. 12 Louisville on Thursday night.
    
Geron Johnson added 13 points, Chris Crawford 12 and Austin Nichols 10 as all five starters scored in double figures to help the Tigers end a four-game losing streak to the defending national champions. Memphis (11-3, 2-1 American Athletic Conference) shot 51 percent and outrebounded the Cardinals 37-35 in a victory that almost slipped away in the second half.
    
Trailing 61-55 with 5:26 remaining, the Tigers closed with an 18-6 run led by Jackson, who scored 11 second-half points. His layup on goaltending by Montrezl Harrell put Memphis up 70-67 with 40 seconds left, Crawford added a free throw and Goodwin followed with a dunk in the final second to seal the hard-fought win.
    
Luke Hancock had a season-high 20 points to lead Louisville (13-3, 2-1).
