Seton Hall Vs. Louisville Final Score Update: Cardinals Halt Pirates, 60-51

For the first time all season, Rick Pitino's Louisville Cardinals are above .500 in Big East conference play after their 60-51 win over Seton Hall on Saturday night. The win moves Louisville to 5-4 within the conference, and 17-5 overall.

Guard Chris Smith was one of two Cardinal starters to score in double figures, putting up 11 points on 3-6 shooting. Sophomore center Gorgui Dieng grabbed 14 rebounds and blocked 5 shots, and Louisville was able to hold off a late Seton Hall rally.
