LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville isn't approaching Saturday's game at No. 12 Syracuse feeling nostalgic or sentimental about its final Big East matchup against the Orange.
Revenge isn't even the primary motivation for the No. 10 Cardinals, whose agenda is winning out and making a run at the conference tournament title. They've won four in a row and their hopes are riding on the improved play of guard Russ Smith, who is making decisions and has cut down his turnovers.
The Cardinals (23-5, 11-4 Big East) were No. 1 on Jan. 19 when Syracuse (22-6, 10-5) dealt the Cardinals their only home loss this season. That started a three-game slide, shuffling Louisville to the middle of the pack.
Syracuse is now swooning with two straight losses and is 5-5 since beating the Cardinals.
