Durr Named First Team WBCA All American

(Courtesy: UofL Athletics) COLUMBUS (March 29, 2018) – It was announced today at Nationwide Arena that University of Louisville junior guard Asia Durr is one of 10 players selected to the 2018 WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches’ All-America team.

She is just the second Louisville player to earn WBCA Coaches’ All-American team honors, the other being Angel McCoughtry in 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09.

Senior forward Myisha Hines-Allen was named WBCA All-America Team honorable mention. Both, Durr and Hines-Allen were named honorable mention a year ago.

Durr was just named Lexington Region Most Outstanding Player after leading the Cardinals to a trip to the Final Four with a team-high 17.5 points per game and 4.5 assists, while pulling down 4.3 rebounds and shooting 10-of-28 from 3-point range.

In addition to the WBCA honor, she has also been named USA Today, Associated Press and USBWA First Team All-American and ESPNW Second Team All-American. Hines-Allen has also been named USA Today and AP Third Team All-American.

Louisville returns to action on Friday night at 7 p.m. ET when they face Mississippi State in the national semifinal. They seek their third ever trip to the national championship game.
