Your top eight UofL WBB players of all time -- Monday Cardinal Couple
SHONI, ANGEL TOP THE ALL-TIME UOFL WBB LIST.
We have been running a poll in June here at CARDINAL COUPLE to see who your All-Time, top eight UofL WBB players are. We chose the number eight because felt that most great teams always had a few backups that could come in off the bench and give a championship team a spark.
Here are your results. We have listed the years the player played and the percentage of votes they received also.
1. (tie) Shoni Schimmel (2010-14) 100%
1. (tie) Angel McCoughtry (2005-2009) 100%
3. Jazz Covington (2003-07) 80%
4. Candyce Bingham (2007-09) 77%
5. Monique Reid (2008-13) 66%
6. Nell Knox (1990-93) 62%
7. Valerie Owens (1977-80) 48%
8. Asia Taylor (2009-14) 34%
Just missing was Antonita Slaughter (2010-14) with 32%.
A good mix of players are represented here. Five of the eight got drafted by the WNBA and two are still playing in the league. Five of the top eight played in a National Championship game. The top four scorers in UofL WBB history are represented in the list.
Since there was a tie for top vote grabber...I suppose the question still remains on who was the best WBB player at Louisville of all time?
Both Shoni and Angel were unique in what they did here in their four years. I did a very unofficial polling yesterday of five people I know and asked them who they thought was #1.
Thanks for taking part in the poll! Let us know what you think of this "Great Eight". How would it do in a fictitious game against a great eight from Kentucky? Or UConn or Notre Dame? How many on this Louisville great eight would make an All-Time great eight of NCAA WBB players since 1975?
And....should we do it again in 2018 or 2019 once the college careers of a few current UofL WBB players has ended?
