Dieng's Career-High Propels Louisville To 79-61 Win Over Seton Hall

USA TODAY Sports

Gorgui Dieng was a remarkable 10-for-11 from the field and scored a career-high as Louisville had no trouble with Seton Hall for the second time this season, blasting the Pirates, 79-61.

What was so unusual about Gorgui's career day was that his absurd field goal percentage wasn't the product of a bunch of dunks and easy finishes around the basket. All told, seven of Dieng's 10 makes were jump shots, a fact sure to impress the handful of NBA scouts in attendance.

A few other quick notes:

--Peyton Siva notched two steals, which leaves him tied with Tick Rogers for third place on U of L's all-time list.

--Russ Smith scored 19 points, which means he'll need 15 against DePaul to become Louisville's 65th 1,000-point scorer. Smith, who drilled all 10 of his free-throw attempts today, also finished with five assists, three steals and just two turnovers.

--Luke Hancock's most recent shoulder appeared to be what doctors call a "Rowengartner Sprain," as he connected on all four of his field goal attempts, all three of his three-point attempts, and both of his free-throw attempts. I wouldn't expect him to miss again until he sufferers the exact same injury. It'll probably be in the Final Four, and then he'll have to granny-style a free-throw to win the game. His mom will rush the court.

--Wayne Blackshear didn't score today, but it was revealed that his favorite costume growing up was a power ranger, and that his favorite power ranger was the red one because he liked ketchup. He contributed enough this afternoon.

--DePaul Day is coming.
