LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Gorgui Dieng had 20 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks to help No. 8 Louisville earn a share of the Big East Conference title with a 73-57 victory over No. 24 Notre Dame on Saturday.

Peyton Siva added 13 points and five assists in his final home game for the Cardinals (26-5, 14-4 Big East), who finished tied for first place with Georgetown and Marquette. Louisville receives a bye into Thursday's quarterfinals at the Big East tournament, where coach Rick Pitino's team will defend its 2012 title.

Dieng and Siva were honored before the game as part of Louisville's senior day festivities. Dieng, a junior center from Senegal, is expected to enter the NBA draft after the season.

Garrick Sherman led Notre Dame (23-8, 11-7) with 14 points. The Fighting Irish will next play Wednesday in the conference tournament at Madison Square Garden.
