University of Louisville junior guard, Asia Durr, was named as one of the 10 finalists for the 2018 Ann Meyers Drysdale Award top 10 list.
The award, in its inaugural year, recognizes the top shooting guard in women’s NCAA Division I college basketball.
Durr has been crucial in Louisville’s success this season. The junior is averaging 19.7 points per game, ranking third in the ACC. She has connected on 46% of her shots from three-point range, which puts her at eighth in the country.
This week…..on 55…..
As we come down to the last few episodes of 55, it’s only fitting that the end of the basketball season is near too. I just wish there was something to talk about. Oh yeah…we get uk again! So in the spirit of revenge on those we despise more than Digger Phelps (I may have went too far) here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55.
1) On Thursday night we opened up our defense of the National Championship with a tough game vs the Manhattan Jaspers, coached by former Louisville asst coach Steve Masiello. I like to believe we played the basketball version of a game called chess. Rick didn’t want to embarrass Mass so we played tit-for-tat (lol) and won the game when we needed to. Played smothering defense as well.
3) Well that had the opposite effect than I intended
4) Nevertheless, we move onto our next conquest which are the mighty Billikens of Saint Louis. Top 10 team at times this year, former conference foes…what could scare us about the Billikens?
6) Oh yeah..That was creepy….in more ways then one
7) I digress
