The junior dropped 24 points and three 3s while helping keep Cardinals’ star guard Dana Evans to 4-for-17 shooting. The loss marked Louisville’s second in the conference and third all season.Lewis last won the award on Jan. 6 following consecutive overtime wins over then-No. 8 Florida State and Notre Dame at the Carrier Dome.The Chicago, Illinois native has been Syracuse’s driving force this season, leading the team in points (17.5), assists (five), steals (1.8) and minutes (37.1) per game. Lewis replaced Tiana Mangakahia as the Orange’s starting point guard after Mangakahia announced she would miss the 2019-20 season last summer as she continued to recover from breast cancer. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img
