From U of L:

Louisville junior guard Asia Durr was named USA Today Sports Women’s Basketball First Team All-American, while senior forward Myisha Hines-Allen was named Third Team All-American, the organization announced today.

Louisville joins Connecticut as one of two schools with more than one player recognized as a USA Today All-American.

Durr was named ACC Player of the Year a week ago after leading the conference in 3-point field goals made and 3-point field goal percentage, while ranking third with 19.5 points per game. She has scored double-digit points in 27 games, 20-plus points 14 times and four times has scored 30-plus points, including a school-record 47 points against Ohio State in early November.

Hines-Allen was named First Team All-ACC and last weekend was named ACC Tournament MVP after averaging 16.0 points and 8.7 rebounds, while shooting 55 percent from the floor, in three tournament games. She led the league with 9.9 rebounds per game and her 14 double-doubles in the regular season tied for the league lead. Already just one of two players in program history with 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds, joining Angel McCoughtry, she is just 44 points shy of reaching 2,000 points.

After winning the ACC regular season and tournament titles, No. 3 Louisville women’s basketball (32-2) now awaits the NCAA Selection Show on Monday, March 12 to determine their path to the 2018 Final Four in Columbus, Ohio.
