Shoni Schimmel named first-team All-American

University of Louisville senior Shoni Schimmel has been named a first-team All-American by the United States Basketball Writers Association. Schimmel has the Cardinals in Elite Eight and among the top teams in the country.

University of Louisville senior Shoni Schimmel will leave the Cardinals' program as the second all-time leading scorer in school history.

Now, she's also an All-American.

Schimmel was named a first-team All-American on Monday by the United States Basketball Writers Association, a 10-player team picked by writers.

The 5-foot-10 Schimmel is averaging 17 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists a game as a senior. She's only the second 2,000-point scorer in school history and was a first-team All-AAC performer this season.

Schimmel was a second-team All-American by ESPNW and has 2,143 career points - trailing only Angel McCoughtry on the all-time list.

In four years, Schimmel has made a school-record 382 three-pointers and ranks No. 7 on the NCAA's all-time list. She's only 10 three-pointers off the national record.

Schimmel had 19 on Sunday as the Cardinals decked LSU. U of L plays Maryland on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. in the Elite Eight. Recommended Stories
