UofL BASKETBALL | Walz, Durr Back in Louisville After Representing USA Basketball

08/21/2017 05:40 PM

UofL women’s basketball had plenty of representation on the USA U23 Women’s National Team earlier this month in Japan.

Head coach Jeff Walz was the head coach of the national team, while guard Asia Durr was on the roster for the national team.

The duo helped lead Team USA to the U24 Four Nations Tournament championship in Japan, after going 3-0 in the tournament.

Walz really enjoyed the experience and hopes the college basketball game can take away a few things from the FIBA rules:

Spectrum News’ Andrew Chernoff caught up with Asia Durr on Monday afternoon as well to talk about her experience in Japan:
