Louisville downs No. 6 Kentucky 73-70

  Louisville topped Kentucky 73-70 on Wednesday night.

In a thrilling game, No. 10 Louisville downed rival No. 6 Kentucky 73-70 Wednesday night in Louisville.

Quentin Snider provided a game-high 22 points in the victory as one of four Cardinals to reach double figures. It was Donovan Mitchell's pair of free throws with eight seconds remaining that pushed the lead to three and forced Kentucky's Malik Monk to put up a last-second 3-point attempt that fell short.

The win stopped Louisville's four-game losing streak to Kentucky and marked only the second win by the Cardinals in head-to-head play since John Calipari took the reigns in Lexington. Louisville moves to 11-1 heading into the start of conference play while Kentucky drops to 10-2.
