NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Gorgui Dieng had 16 points and 14 rebounds - both season highs - to lead No. 3 Louisville to its ninth straight win with a 73-58 victory over Seton Hall on Wednesday night.

Freshman Montrezl Harrell, starting in place of injured Chane Behanan, tied his career best with 14 points, and Luke Hancock hit two 3-pointers in a late, game-breaking 12-2 run that gave the Cardinals (14-1, 2-0 Big East) the win.

The Cardinals won despite getting a combined 4-for-17 shooting performance from starting guards Russ Smith and Peyton Siva.

Brandon Mobley had 18 points and seven rebounds for the Pirates (12-4, 1-2), who lost their second straight. Eugene Teague added 14 points and 10 rebounds, while leading scorer Fuquan Edwin was limited to 13 - most coming after the game was decided.
