From U of L:

University of Louisville senior guard Asia Durr was named ACC Player of the Week for the second-consecutive week after averaging 28.5 points per game in wins over UT Martin and in-state rival Kentucky.

With today’s award, she has been named ACC Player of the Week nine times in her career. She has earned the accolade three times this season, previously being honored on Nov. 12 and Dec. 3.

For the week, Durr shot 49 percent from the floor, while averaging 3.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals. On Tuesday night against UT Martin, she posted 25 points on 8-of-18 shooting, including 3-of-6 from beyond the arc and 6-of-6 from the foul line, while adding five rebounds, three assists and three steals. She followed that performance with 32 points on 13-of-25 shooting against Kentucky, opening the game with Louisville’s first seven points in route to a 15-point first quarter.

Now sitting at 10-0 on the season, Louisville will close its home non-conference schedule on Saturday against in-state foe Northern Kentucky at 11:30 a.m.
