Louisville coach Rick Pitino has no plans to play Memphis next season, but he might not have a choice.

Pitino told Saturday that the Cardinals haven't had a conversation with Memphis about playing the Tigers, contrary to a report in the Memphis Commercial Appeal Saturday that said the two teams would continue playing next season even after Louisville leaves Conference USA for the Big East.
