St. Pius junior Asia Durr would definitely like to repeat last year’s success on the basketball court.

“I want to win the state championship again and hopefully I can win player of the year again,” Durr said. “But I just want to get better and help my teammates get better.”

Last season, the Lady Golden Lions reeled off 20 straight wins en route to the Class AAA state championship.

“I was very surprised I was named player of the year,” said Durr, who averaged 21 points last season while shooting 52 percent from the floor. “There were some great players out there.”

St. Pius extended that streak to 22 in a row before a 55-50 setback to Hillgrove last month.

Currently, the Lady Lions are on a three-game winning streak and will host Cross Keys today.

In a few weeks, Durr expects the Lady Lions to have a few challenges on their hands during the Naples Holiday Shootout in Florida.

“That is going to be a great tournament,” Durr said. “Some of the top teams in the country will be there.”

Even though Durr has one more season of high school basketball to play, the 5-foot-10 guard has the attention of many big-time women’s college programs.
