    MEMPHIS, Tenn. Authentic Aaron Dell Jersey . -- Chris Crawford hit a 3-pointer with 1:36 left to put Memphis ahead to stay, and the 21st-ranked Tigers beat seventh-ranked Louisville 72-66 Saturday, sweeping the season series from the Cardinals. Memphis (22-7, 11-5 American Athletic Conference) trailed 65-57 with 4:45 left when Michael Dixon Jr. scored six straight, jumpstarting the Tigers who scored 15 of the final 16 points. Louisville (24-5, 13-3) snapped a seven-game winning streak by going cold after taking its biggest lead of the game. The Cardinals scored only on a Chris Jones hit a free throw with 40.3 seconds to go. Montrezl Harrell scored a career-high 25 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Russ Smith scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half and fouled out in the final minute. Luke Hancock had 11. Dixon finished with 18 for Memphis, which hadnt swept Louisville since 1996-97. Geron Johnson scored 15 points. Austin Nichols added 14, and Crawford finished with 12 points, going 4 for 5 from beyond the arc. With No. 11 Cincinnati losing at UConn earlier Saturday, the Cardinals had the chance to move atop the league standings with only two games left with a win. But they couldnt match Memphis down the stretch. Dixon made four straight free throws starting with 4:23 left and added a layup. Louisville coach Rick Pitino put Smith back in the game with four fouls, but Johnson stole the ball from the senior guard late in the shot clock and scored a layup with 2:35 left tying the game. Memphis scored 12 straight points before Jones free throw. This game was scrappy from the start before a sold-out crowd at the FedExForum as part of a doubleheader with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Grizzlies on Saturday night. The 18,375 fans were fired up for the Tigers lone shot in Memphis against Louisville as conference foes, reviving a rivalry that started back to the old Metro Conference. The Cardinals are moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference next season. The Tigers jumped out scoring the first six points and harassed Louisville into nine turnovers by halftime. Smith kept the Cardinals in the game by scoring 14 of their first 20 points. Memphis led 37-31 at halftime. But Louisville opened the second half outscoring the Tigers 13-4, and the Cardinals used a six-point spurt to take their first lead of the game. Harrell scored on a layup, then Jones -- a Memphis native -- hit a jumper with 16:14 remaining for Louisvilles first lead at 42-41. Smith added a layup forcing Memphis coach Josh Pastner to take a timeout. The teams swapped the lead four more times. Louisville took the lead again on a 3-pointer by Harrell with 10:40 left. Harrell, who was 1 of 2 beyond the arc all season, just beat the shot clock for the bucket and a 51-49 lead. Memphis pulled within 59-57 on a 3-pointer by Crawford from the left corner in front of the Tigers bench with 6:35 left. But senior David Pellom was called for a flagrant 1 for an elbow to Stephan Van Treese under the basket. He hit both free throws starting a 6-0 spurt that Harrell capped with a dunk with 4:45 left, giving Louisville its biggest lead. Authentic Joe Pavelski Jersey .com) - Charlie Davies netted a pair of goals, including the series-winner on Saturday, as the New England Revolution battled the New York Red Bulls to a 2-2 draw in the second leg of the Eastern Conference Championship at Gillette Stadium and advanced to MLS Cup final via a thrilling 4-3 aggregate victory. Authentic Brenden Dillon Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch.Phil Edwards looks at Englands first-Test win, Eddie Jones bout with the media, and Australias city of sport, Melbourne... Its so far so good for England in Australia. On Saturday they made history by beating the Wallabies in Brisbane for the first time. Now theyre hoping to give the sporting chroniclers more work by wrapping up their first series win in Australia at the earliest available opportunity. These are heady times for Eddie Jones and his merry men.Saturdays victory was all the more poignant because it came at Brisbanes Suncorp Stadium, formerly known as Lang Park. It was there in 1998 that England suffered their worst day at the office. Fast Eddie has been playing both countries media like a violin. Actually, more like a demented fiddler after three double espressos. Phil Edwards The yet-to-be-knighted Clive Woodward had taken a scratch team to tackle all three of the southern hemispheres super-powers, on what would become known as the Tour from Hell.The first of four Tests, all ending in painful defeats, was in Brisbane. Most of the big names were missing, and a collection of players, some of whom werent even household names in their own households, crashed to a 76-0 defeat.I say most were relative unknowns, but there was a bloke making his first start for England that night you will have heard of; a fella by the name of Jonny Wilkinson. And you know what he managed to achieve five years later! Anyhow, Saturdays win exorcised a few demons. Wilkinson made his first start for England against Australia in Brisbane in 1998 Melbourne, city of sportNow the bandwagon has rolled on to Melbourne. By contrast, this is where England had their best day on the road against Australia, back in 2003. Criticised before the match for being negative and one-dimensional - some things never change - they ran riot and out-scored their hosts by three tries to one to record their first ever victory on Australian soil.If you are a sports fan (and you are or you wouldnt be reading this) then Melbourne has it all. There is the MCG for cricket and Aussie Rules football, the Melbourne Cup for racing types, the AAMI Stadium for both codes of rugby, the Rod Laver Arena for Grand Slam tennis, and the Australian Grand Prix circuit in Albert Park. Highlights of Englands 39-28 win over Australia in the first game of their three-Test series in Brisbane If you like your rowing and canoeing, theres the Yarra River and I dare say that if Tibetan Yak racing is your thing, theres probably an amateur club somewhere in the suburbs to cater for your every need. Its at the aforementioned AAMI stadium, home to the Melbourne Rebels, in which England and Australia will meet in the second Test.Thats the main act of the week of course, but as Im sure you are aware, there is also an on-going sub-plot. Various former Wallabies, one of them actually capped by Eddie Jones, have been chirping away in the local papers, and on the telly. England coach Eddie Jones says his side will come out swinging in their next game against Australia Theyve been helpfully pointing out Englands flaws, transgression and, before the first Test had been played, their general hopelessness. Authentic Antoine Bibeau Jersey. Consequently, Fast Eddie has been playing both countries media like a violin. Actually, more like a demented fiddler after three double espressos.To start with he was apparently outraged by the comments hed read and seen. That was straight after the first Test. Two days later that infectious grin had returned and it was all just good old knock-about banter. We all know hes playing mind-games of the highest quality, but theyre simply too good to resist! Heartbreak and heart failureOne thing the England coach did remind us of is that Australia have never lost the second Test of a three match series. As a punter who paid his way to watch the Lions series with some mates back in 2001, I remember all too well the heartache of the second Test.That was here in Melbourne in the indoor Etihad Stadium. One loose pass from Jonny Wilkinson that night, and Joe Roff pounced to score a game-changing try, followed by another shortly afterwards. Summer tours on Sky How and where to watch the summer Tests on Sky Sports Twelve years later at the same venue, it wasnt so much heart-break, as near heart-failure as the Wallabies edged a desperately tense match by a single point.This time, you feel that England have the upper hand at both the lineout and the scrum. They also seem to have the measure of the Wallabies at the breakdown.Owen Farrell is in the form of his life and never looks like missing from the kicking tee, and Maro Itoje has to refer to a dictionary to find out what losing means because hes forgotten.  Owen Farrell picked up 24 points for England as they beat Australia 28-39 in Brisbane Having said all that, the Aussies are still as dangerous out wide as all their snakes and creepy-crawlies combined.And in Isreal Folau they have a player who can turn a match on its head in seconds. They are in must-win territory and about as desperate as men can get. Saturday should be an absolute ripper, as they say in these parts.
