Another honor for Durr -- Friday Cardinal Couple

Durr named POY

Douglasville, GA resident and former St. Pius X girls’ basketball standout Asia Durr was named the Parade Magazine national player of the year May 29.

Durr, who will continue her career at the University of Louisville, has had a stellar prep career including being named the Gatorade Georgia girls’ basketball player of the year and a McDonalds All-America.

The Parade All-American Basketball team, which originated with boys’ basketball in 1957, is the longest ongoing All-American selection list in the country.

Durr joins an illustrious list of Parade All-American honorees on the girls’ team including Cheryl Miller, Brittney Griner, Rebecca Lobo, Candace Parker and Chamique Holdsclaw.

Durr led the Golden Lions to a quarterfinal appearance in the 4A state tournament this season and a 27-4 overall record, including 18-0 in regular season region play.

She averaged 33.3 points per game and collected 6.4 rebounds per contest.

She also led St. Pius X in assists, steals and blocked shots.

Durr was named 2015 Miss Georgia Basketball for the second consecutive year by the Atlanta Tip-Off Club as well.

Durr finished her career as the leading scorer in school history — male or female — and led the Golden Lions to back-to-back state titles in 2013 and 2014.

“I’ve had a great time at St. Pius and representing Douglas County,” Durr said.

“It’s something that I’ll never forget.”
