Posted By Toyacoyah Brown April 14th, 2014 Last Updated on: April 14th, 2014

In case you missed it, the WNBA draft is tonight and Shoni Schimmel was one of twelve WNBA prospects invited to attend. Charlie Perry with NDNSports takes a closer look at how tonight might play out for Schimmel and who has their eye on her.

Coaches from around the league are taking notice of Schimmel who leads the 2014 class of shooting guards in scoring. Linn Dunn, head coach of thewnbaschimmelstorypic-187x300 Indiana Fever commented, “I think Shoni Schimmel is a very entertaining player. She played in a great system at Louisville under Jeff Walz. I would be surprised if she’s not drafted in the first round.” Former NBA player and coach of the New York Liberty Bill Laimbeer said, “I think the Liberty fans would get a big kick out of her playing for us; she fits right into our style.” The Tulsa Shock has also shown interest with their large Native American fan base. Head Coach Fred Williams commented, “A player like that would certainly help the fan base here in Tulsa; I think her fan base would help any team in this league. She’s a terrific play to watch from the standpoint of energy and shooting, she’s also an all-around player that can play multiple positions.”
