In news that should shock exactly no one, Gorgui Dieng will play on Saturday for Louisville versus Kentucky. Rick Pitino told Jeff Goodman of CBS the news, presumably on their nightly conference call with Pat Forde and Pete Thamel, and he reports that Dieng is now in for Saturday at the Yum Center.
When Pitino before Christmas said Dieng would not play, we said he was lying. And it looks as if we were correct. The one thing about Rick Pitino…the only time he isn’t lying is when he isn’t talking.
