Kyle Kuric added 13 points and Gorgui Dieng stuffed Seton Hall inside with six blocks and 10 rebounds to help the seventh-seeded Cardinals advance to play ninth-ranked and second-seeded Marquette on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

Russ Smith scored five of his 11 down the stretch as Louisville (23-9) thwarted Seton Hall’s late charge to stop a two-game skid.

Jordan Theodore scored 17 and Herb Pope had 11 points and 15 rebounds to lead the 10th-seeded Pirates (20-12), sitting tenuously on the NCAA bubble. Seton Hall shot just 33 percent — including 3 of 19 from 3-point range — and lost for the 10th time in its final 15 games.
