LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville women’s basketball’s Myisha Hines-Allen, Mariya Moore, and Asia Durr collected more postseason accolades from the Atlantic Coast Conference on Monday, league officials announced.

Sophomores Hines-Allen and Moore, who were named to the Blue Ribbon Panel all-ACC first team, earned conference first-team honors as selected by the 15 head coaches. Durr was named to the coaches’ all-freshman team, an honor she also was chosen for by the league’s media and sports information directors.

The Cardinals (25-7) reached the ACC Tournament semifinals on Saturday and now await their NCAA Tournament fate, which will be announced on ESPN’s Selection Monday show on March 14. Louisville will host a watch party at The Sports and Social Club downtown. Details will be announced later this week.
