This happened on Wednesday night and I am just now seeing it. Some things manage to slip through! But future Louisville Cardinal Asia Durr put up 52 points last night for her high school team in the state tournament! Here is more from AJC.com in Atlanta.
St. Pius superstar and Louisville-signee Asia Durr finished with 52 points, one-point shy of her own school record, as the second-seeded Golden Lions rallied past third-seed Woodward Academy 72-63 to advance to the Class AAAA Sweet 16. St. Pius head coach Kyle Snipes has become well-aware of the caliber of player he has in Durr, (the No. 1 overall prospect in the nation and two-time state champion), but tonight he left the court equally astonished by a hailstorm of three-pointers Woodward Academy used in the third quarter to build a 55-51 lead.
“She [Asia] works harder than she plays,” explained Snipes. “We should have lost the game the way they came out and shot the ball but Asia is so prepared in every detail of the game and that gives her confidence in any situation.”
Durr finished the game with five made 3-pointers and included 18-21 shooting from the foul line.
The future of Louisville women’s basketball couldn’t be brighter. I have said it multiple times: Jeff Walz will win a National Championship here!
