Dieng provided 16 points, 14 rebounds, and three blocks Sunday in the win over Duke to send Louisville to the Final Four. The Cardinal center did struggle from the free throw line (2-of-8) and he fouled out after 25 minutes.

Dieng did not play when Duke beat Louisville in November, but he was a big factor in the win on Sunday. He will have a significant size advantage against Wichita State next Saturday in Atlanta.

Dieng scored a career-high 23 points on 10-of-11 from the field to go along with eight rebounds and two blocks Saturday in the win over Seton Hall.

The Pirates are not known for their interior defense and the 6-11 junior took advantage. He has scored 54 points in his last four games, but will probably not lead the Cardinals in scoring in many more games down the stretch.
