Cardinals' third leading scorer to keep playing

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Louisville guard Taquan Dean has
mononucleosis, but will continue to play through the end of the
season.

The 6-foot-3 Dean is Louisville's third-leading scorer,
averaging 13.8 points per game. He scored only three points on
1-for-7 shooting in the 12th-ranked Cardinals' 64-61 comeback win
over Marquette on Thursday night.

Coach Rick Pitino said Friday that Dean has missed three
practices this week. Mono symptoms include fever, sore throat,
headaches, white patches on the back of your throat, swollen glands
in the neck and overall fatigue.
