( MOORE) HONORS FOR UOFL WBB FRESHMEN




( Today at CARDINAL COUPLE...we look at Mariya Moore, Myshia Hines-Allen, Lacrosse and Jude! )

MOORE, HINES-ALLEN SELECTED FOR FRESHMAN ALL-AMERICAN HONORS

We knew the 2014 UofL freshman class was pretty special when they committed to Jeff Walz and the Cards. To back that summation up, Mariya Moore and Myisha Hines-Allen (the M&M gals) have been selected for the Full Court freshman All-American honors.



Moore gets first-team status. She's the first Card to receive such an honor since Shoni...back in 2011. Hines-Allen gets third team recognition. The duo join Schimmel and Bria Smith (2012, second team) as the only WBB Cards to be selected for this status.




Moore finished her maiden voyage year with some pretty impressive stats. 20th. in scoring in the ACC, seventh in assists, eighth in free throw percentage, 13th. in steals and 10th. in 3-point field goals made per game.


Hines-Allen was key in the Cards NCAA run with three consecutive games in double figures. She and Moore were named to the All-ACC freshman team and both were named to the all-ACC academic team also.

Brains, beauty and ballers. Setting a high bar for the 2015 Class to strive for. Is this the dawning of the age of Aquarius for UofL WBB?

And, let's not forget about the other returning 2014 recruits returning. Arica Carter, with steady, dependable off-the-bench play. A rising star on the horizon. Syd Brackemyre...ready to return from her redshirt and just as dangerous as her fellow frosh class.



Toss in the fabulous five from 2015 and one can get very excited about the 2015-16 season. With "E", Deines and Walton also ready to add experience, talent and skills into this Walz stew...the Cards have already been tabbed by another site as the "best young team in WBB for 2015." 

Coach and staff will be busy with this so-very-talented group...indoctrinating, teaching, exhorting and instructing.
The talent level may be the best in Cardinal Women's basketball history. Eyes and interest will be focused on the 2015-16 season.

Maybe Jude will decide to write a book about this bunch as a second potential publication...

A special thanks to Rick Laemmle for sending us these words from Jude: 
  
> CONVERSATION WITH JUDE SCHIMMEL 
>  
> “Dreamcatcher” is available online for purchase at www.judeschimmel.com 
>  
> What were you goals in writing this book? 
>  
> Schimmel: I want to positively impact other Native Americans so that they can 
live the life they want to achieve and fulfill the dreams that they have. I went 
through and witnessed similar struggles that many Native Americans go through 
and want to share that with others. I want my story to show that there can be 
great success found both on the reservation and off the reservation. Most 
importantly I want Native Americans to keep their culture and traditions alive 
while still having the opportunities to experience things people of other 
backgrounds. (i.e. an education). It is important to me not to just positively 
impact Native Americans through this book, but bring light to these issues for 
those outside of the Native American community that the struggles faced by these 
community can be fixed and that change can be good for our entire society.  
>  
> Talk about your recent visit to the White House in early April… 
>  
> Schimmel: This was a special moment for me. It was really a chance to see that 
many of the dreams that I want to achieve through my platform are starting to 
appear in the hands of people that have the power to make an impact and make 
change. To know that President Obama and the First Lady have Native American 
issues on their mind as important for change in our nation. The issues that are 
being discussed as part of the Generation Indigenous initiative are the issues 
that matter to me and I am glad they are on the forefront of change for the 
Native American people. 
>  
> How did you first become aware of the issues that so many people face in 
Native Americans? 
>  
> Schimmel: Playing basketball at the AAU level opens your eyes to the world 
around you. It introduces you to many new people and places. This really opened 
my eyes to seeing how people were so different from me, even within my own tribe 
and cultural background. It really showed me that people face so many challenges 
in life because of their background – from the barriers in place from education, 
family situations, healthcare, lack of technology. This was one of the 
>  
> Why is it so important to you to be a role model and inspiration to the young 
people of the Native American community? 
>  
> Schimmel: I don’t want to pass up the chance to do great things with the 
platform I have been given. Many people from the Native American community have 
done amazing things throughout their lives, but not enough people in my position 
have used it as a chance to help those around us. The status and prestige of 
being a successful collegiate basketball player was an amazing experience, but 
wasn’t the number one thing I aim to achieve. Using this platform means so much 
to me because I want to make a positive difference for others and their lives. 
>  
> How has the experience of being a collegiate student-athlete helped you grow 
as a person? 
>  
> Schimmel: I was shaped into the primary person I am because of my 15 years on 
the reservation. I have since been molded and moved by the unique experiences 
and opportunities that collegiate athletics has given me. I got to play in so 
many unique environments and meet so many people. I have teammates from across 
the country, that alone exposed me to new cultures and identities that I 
wouldn’t have enjoyed without the collegiate experience. I am so thankful that 
the University of Louisville allowed me the chance to get my collegiate 
education. It also provided me so much more than just a degree, but an amazing 
experience. 
>  
> What did it mean to you to be selected as one of Glamour’s Top 10 College 
Women in 2014? 
>  
> Schimmel: The opportunity to go to New York and be involved with so many 
outstanding people that were looking to impact their communities and cultures 
made a major impact on me. Everyone has always looked at myself and my sister 
Shoni as basketball stars, this was an eye opening experience for me because it 
gave me a new understanding of how I could use my platform to inspire and do 
great things within the Native American community

  1. Great honor for the M&M girls! Also a good read on Jude. Can't wait for the book I ordered at her website.

  2. The WNBA would be wise to get Jude on a team somewhere. Phoenix or Seattle would be obvious choices. Native American attendance to games based on Shoni was significant. Imagine the impact with an additional Schimmel.
