LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Steven Enoch scored 13 points, including the go-ahead free throws with 2:47 remaining, and David Johnson, Ryan McMahon and Malik Williams combined for eight more from the line to lift No. 5 Louisville past Virginia 80-73 for its 10th consecutive victory.

The Cardinals led most of the way before the Cavaliers stormed back to go ahead 70-68 on Kihei Clark’s two technical free throws with 3:25 left.

Johnson’s jumper tied it before Enoch's two free throws put Louisville ahead for good. Tomas Woldetensae had 27 points with seven 3-pointers for Virginia.

The Cardinals (21-3, 12-1 ACC) visit Georgia Tech on February 12.
