Louisville’s Dana Evans has been named a First Team All-American by the Associated Press. She becomes just the third Cardinal to earn the honor, joining Angel McCoughtry (2009) and Asia Durr (2018, 2019).

Evans, who last month was named ACC Player of the Year for a second straight season, was a Second Team All-American last season.

The Gary, Ind. native leads the ACC with 20.0 points per game and ranks seventh with 4.2 assists per game. She ranks fifth in the country with a 92.0 free throw percentage. She is 81-88 (.920) from the line on the season and was 57-59 (.966) in ACC play.

Evans was joined on the AP’s First team by UConn’s Paige Bueckers, Kentucky’s Rhyne Howard, South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston, and Baylor’s NaLyssa Smith.

The second-seed in the Alamo Region, Louisville begins its run towards the program’s first national title on Monday night when it faces Marist at 8 p.m. ESPN will have the coverage.
