SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
- SHONI NAMED AS ONE OF 21 WOODEN FINALISTS
The Los Angeles Athletic Club has announced that senior guard Shoni Schimmel was one of 21 players named to its John R. Wooden Award Women’s Midseason Top 20 today. This list is comprised of 20 student-athletes who, based on individual performance and team records, are the front-runners for college basketball’s most prestigious individual honor. The list is chosen by the Wooden Award National Advisory Board. This year’s midseason list contains 21 players, not the traditional 20, because Duke’s Chelsea Gray was voted to the list by the media based on her play so far this year, despite suffering a season ending knee injury last week.
Schimmel was named to the preseason list after being a key player in the Cardinals' success last season. She was named the Most Outstanding Player for the Oklahoma City Regional. She also earned WBCA All-Region honors and first team All-BIG EAST honors.
This season Schimmel is leading the Cardinals in scoring with 17.5 points per game. She also leads the Cardinals in three-point field goal percentage, connecting on 37 percent. She ranks fourth in the conference in scoring. She also ranks second in the conference in free throw percentage and second in three-point field goal percentage. She leads the conference in three-point field goals made with 3.5 per game. She currently ranks third on Louisville’s all-time scoring list with 1,826 points.
