 Louisville senior guard/forward Wayne Blackshear remains questionable for Saturday’s game against N.C. State after he didn’t practice Thursday due to a hip pointer, according to The Courier-Journal.

Blackshear played only one minute during Wednesday’s 69-56 win vs. Pittsburgh after suffering a hip pointer in practice earlier in the day, according to Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein.

Freshman Shaqquan Aaron and sophomore Anton Gill saw more playing time for the No. 9 Cardinals (20-4, 8-3 ACC) on Wednesday in the absence of Blackshear, who is fourth on the team in scoring (10.6 points per game) and fifth in rebounding (4.6 rebounds per game).

As of Friday, CBSSports.com Bracketology Expert Jerry Palm had Louisville as a No. 3 seed for the NCAA Tournament.
