Dieng leads No. 5 Louisville over FDU 80-58
LOUISVILLE, Ky.—Gorgui Dieng had 14 points and 12 rebounds to lift No. 5 Louisville to an 80-58 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson on Saturday -- the Cardinals' 17th straight win at the KFC Yum! Center.
Kyle Kuric added 18 points and Peyton Siva had 16 for Louisville, which is in the midst of a 10-game homestand that will get a lot tougher when the Cardinals host No. 21 Memphis next Saturday after finishing final exams this coming week.
Louisville (9-0) used a 10-0 run late in the first half to open up a 19-point advantage at the break and was never threatened in the second half.
George Goode, who played three seasons at Louisville before transferring to pursue a graduate degree, had 17 points and 12 rebounds for FDU (1-8). Melquan Bolding added 23 points for the Knights.
