A 33 ans Diouf-Diongue joint cette saison les autres joueuses de la Ligue Féminine de Basketball, voire N'Goyisa de Nantes-Rezé, Elodie Bertal de Villeneuve d'Ascq, Géraldine Bertal de Lyon, qui avaient elles aussi dû quitter le parquet à cause de maternité.

Diouf-Diongue a une belle carrière derrière elle avec l'équipe de Sénégale avec une participation aux jeux olympiques en 2000, des participations aux Championnats du Monde en 2002 et 2010, au Championnat d'Afrique en 2007 et 2009. Dans cette dernière année son équipe devient Champion d'Afrique.

En France elle joue pour Basket Landes et l'aida à monter du NF2 jusqu'à la Ligue Féminine.

(Pour respecter la réglementation de la LFB, l'entraîneur landais, Olivier Lafarque, se voit dans l'obligation de chercher un remplacement avant le 10 février sinon le club ne peut plus engager une nouvelle joueuse.)
