Gorgui Dieng on hand to celebrate UofL baseball’s return to CWS

Gorgui-Dieng-CWSAmong the spectators watching the deciding game of the University of Louisville vs. Kennesaw State Super Regional was Gorgui Dieng, an all-time UofL favorite now playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves in the National Basketball Association. He was there with his U.S. sponsor Lesley Thomas who worked with Dieng’s English-speaking family in Senegal four years ago to complete the necessary steps and arranged for Louisville officials to send letters to the Senegalese embassy verifying Dieng’s good academic standing.
