No. 1 girls player 'really likes' U of L

Douglasville, Ga., point guard Asia Durr has the University of Louisville among her final five schools. Durr is considered the No. 1 player nationally in the Class of 2015.

Asia Durr, the top-ranked girls' basketball player in the Class of 2015, released her final five schools last week that included the University of Louisville women's team.

The 5-foot-10 Durr, who is a point guard from Douglasville, Ga., is also still looking at Notre Dame, Baylor, Duke and Maryland.

"We're working on visits now," her father, Terry, told Cardinal Authority. He said her visit to U of L could be the Oct. 17 weekend. "We just have to get the dates set."

Durr helped Team USA to a gold medal last month in the U17 World Championships in the Czech Republic. She had 17 points in the final and averaged 13.4 points a game in the tournament.

Terry Durr said U of L has been recruiting her for a while, noting the Cardinals' staff have "done a great job," in the process.

Asis Durr has visited Maryland and Duke and is likely to see the other three schools.

With U of L, her father said Asia Durr "really likes" a number of things the Cardinals bring to the table for her career.

"We like what coach (Jeff) Walz has built," Terry Durr said. "He's put them on the map.

"They play in front of a lot of people and they play in a great conference. Asia's goal is to get to college and win a championship and she feels like she can be the missing piece at Louisville and help them win a title."
