The Memphis Tigers roared ahead late, beating rival Louisville 72-66 to sweep the regular season series against the Cardinals.

Michael Dixon led the comeback for the Tigers, scoring 18 points, including a perfect 9-9 from the free throw line. Dixon scored seven points in the final four minutes of the game and had 16 of his 18 points in the second half.

The Tigers trailed 65-57 with less than five minutes to go before Dixon took over. The senior guard scored six consecutive points to bring the Tigers within one possesion.

Geron Johnson (15 points, 4 rebounds) converted a layup in transition to tie the game and Chris Crawford (12 points) drilled his fourth three-pointer with 1:43 remaining to cap a 10-0 that gave the Tigers a lead they would never relinquish.
