02/27/2018 10:17 AM

Louisville women’s basketball guard Asia Durr was named one of 10 semifinalists for the Citizen Naismith Trophy Women’s College Player of the Year on Monday.

Durr leads the Cardinals in scoring this season with 19.5 points per game. A big reason for her success is her three-point shooting, as she is 98-of-220 (44.5%) from behind-the-arc this season.

Here is a list of the 10 semifinalists for the award:

-Kelani Brown (Baylor)
-Jordin Canada (UCLA)
-Asia Durr (Louisville)
-Sabrina Ionescu (Oregon)
-Kelsey Mitchell (Ohio St.)
-Arike Ogunbowale (Notre Dame)
-Katie Lou Samuelson (UConn)
-Victoria Vivians (Mississippi St.)
-Gabby Williams (UConn)
-A’ja Wilson (South Carolina)

The field of 10 semifinalists will be narrowed to four finalists on March 16, before the actual winner of the award is announced on March 31.
