NCAA Womens Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Louisville vs Syracuse Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

From U of L:

University of Louisville women's basketball's Asia Durr, Myisha Hines-Allen, and Mariya Moore each earned Blue Ribbon Panel all-Atlantic Coast Conference honors, the league office announced on Tuesday.

Durr and Hines-Allen secured first-team honors – marking Hines-Allen's second-consecutive season on the first team – and Moore was named to the second team in a vote by the league's media and sports information directors.

Louisville is the only team this year to have three combined selections between the first and second teams. Additional awards, including the coaches' selections, will be announced during the coming week and surrounding the 40th annual ACC Tournament in Conway, S.C.

Durr, the most explosive scoring threat in the conference, finished the regular season with a league-best four 30-point games. The sophomore is averaging 18.3 points and 3.2 rebounds, while collecting 55 assists and 39 steals. She has connected on 95 3-pointers, the most in the conference and sixth most nationally.

Hines-Allen, the second leading scorer at 13.5 points, leads the Cardinals with 9.1 rebounds for fourth most in the league. She has tallied 49 assists and 32 steals. The junior has become a double-double threat after tallying 11 last year. She boasts 13 this season, third most in a season in school history. Hines-Allen's 274 rebounds are two shy of tying for 10th on the school's single-season list.

Moore, now a three-time league honoree, has compiled another remarkable, well-rounded season. The junior is producing 12.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 1.1 steals. She has scored in double figures 20 times this season, including five 20-point performances, while collecting at least five assists on 14 occasions.

No. 14 Louisville (25-6, 12-4 ACC) returns to action on Thursday in the HTC Center at the ACC Tournament at 11 a.m. ET. The Cardinals face the winner of No. 12 seed Virginia Tech and No. 13 seed Clemson.
