What You Missed at U of L’s Native Appreciation Night Honoring Shoni Schimmel
The Schimmel sisters have some of the best fans in sports. On Monday night, thousands of fans drove from hundreds of miles away, and through snow storms to watch Shoni Schimmel play her last regular home game of the season at KFC Yum! Center in Louisville on Native American Appreciation night. ICTMN reported that tribes from more than 40 states were on hand to watch Schimmel and cheer for her (and her sister Jude) despite the team’s loss to UConn, 68-48. Shoni told ICTMN that it was “really cool” to have so much support.
