LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville women’s basketball junior guard Asia Durr has been named ACC Player of the Week after setting a school record with 47 points in Sunday’s 95-90 overtime win over No. 5 Ohio State.
Durr’s 47 points surpassed the previous school record of 43, set by Angel McCoughtry in 2001 against Providence. It also surpassed the high on the men’s side, as Wes Unseld’s record for points in a game is 45.
Her previous career-high was 36 points against Syracuse last season.
The Douglasville, Ga., native, scored 17 points in both the first half and the second half and then erupted for 13 of the Cardinals’ 15 points in overtime to seal the victory.
She finished the game 16-of-29 from the floor, 9-of-15 from three-point range and 6-of-6 from the free throw line. Her nine three-pointers tied the school record, set by Shoni Schimmel against Memphis in 2014.
She added six rebounds and two assists, while playing the end of regulation through overtime with four fouls.
It marks the second time in her career that Durr has been named ACC Player of the Week.
Louisville returns to action on Tuesday night in the second round of the Women’s NIT against Toledo at 7 p.m. ET.
