University of Louisville junior guard Dana Evans has been named a United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Second Team All-American.

Six different conferences are represented on the team, which for the second time the USBWA composed into three teams. Due to a tie in the voting, 16 players are being honored by the USBWA as All-Americans this season. Also, the USBWA has recognized an additional 14 players with honorable mention.

The Cardinals have now had an All-American in three consecutive seasons and join only UConn and Baylor as programs with multiple players earning those three honors.
Last week, Evans was named an Associated Press Second Team All-American and she is the fourth player in Louisville program history to be named a USBWA All-American. Angel McCoughtry (2007-08; 2008-09), Shoni Schimmel (2013-14) and Asia Durr (2017-18; 2018-19) also earned USBWA All-American honors.
The junior from Gary, Ind., was named Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, marking the fourth time in the last five years that a Louisville player has earned ACC Player of the Year honors.

She led the ACC in 3-point field goals made (90), 3-point field goals made per game (3.0), 3-point field goal percentage (43.1%) and free throw percentage (89.0%).

Evans had 10 20-plus point games, including a career-high 28 points in the 69-48 win over Oklahoma State in the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam on Nov. 29.

She ranked third in the ACC with 18.0 points per game and scored in double figures in 29 of 30 games played.
