Dieng to Return For Cardinals's Game Against Wildcats

The Louisville Cardinals and Kentucky Wildcats square off tomorrow in their annual regular season basketball battle.

U of L has lost four straight to the Wildcats, including their Final Four matchup back in March in New Orleans, but the Cardinals are back this season with an experienced team and bring a 11-1 record and No. 4 ranking to the game.

It will also mark the return of Cards’ center Gorgui Dieng the lineup. He’s missed the last seven games with a broken hand.

Meanwhile, the young players for Kentucky -- the defending national champions -- have had some struggles early in the season and the 8-3 Wildcats find themselves the underdogs against U of L.

Tipoff at the KFC Yum Center is 4 p.m. Saturday.
