University of Louisville sophomore Myisha Hines-Allen has joined some elite company.
Hines-Allen became the second U of L player to earn Player of the Year honors in a confernece when she was named ACC Player of the Year on Wednesday. The only other player was former All-American Angel McCoughtry.
"She's been so solid for us," U of L coach Jeff Walz said in a recent interview. "She has worked hard and really improved. She's deserving of any accolades she earns because of the hard work she's put in."
The sophomore leads the Cardinals in scoring at 17 points a game and rebounding at 8.1. She also has nine double-doubles this season and has scored at least 20 points in a game on nine occasions.
Louisville will play its first game in the ACC Tournament on Friday night in Greensboro, N.C., at 6 p.m. The Cardinals have won 21 of their last 22 games and went 15-1 in ACC play.
