LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville's four seniors will always be remembered for their roles in helping win last year's NCAA championship.

Russ Smith, Luke Hancock, Stephan Van Treese and Tim Henderson will also go down as the Cardinals' winningest class with a 115-30 record entering Saturday's regular-season finale against No. 19 Connecticut (24-6, 12-5 American Athletic Conference), a game that could also earn the No. 11 Cardinals (25-5, 14-3) a share of the inaugural AAC crown.

Sweeping the Huskies could add to an impressive list of achievements for Louisville's upperclassmen, who have already earned consecutive Big East championships and back-to-back Final Four berths. There's still time for another title from a group that has put together the school's best run after arriving as relative unknowns recruited by coach Rick Pitino.
