Shoni Schimmel Appreciation Night: Tough Stage, Great Crowd
Schimmel’s teammate, and U of L Guard Tia Gibbs agreed. "We're witnessing something that hasn't been done in women's basketball," Gibbs said. "We go anywhere in the country, and we've got more fans in red than the other team has on their home floor. I think it goes to show Shoni and Jude's character. They're special people, and what they're doing for the whole Native American culture is very special. And they're kind of showing them what can be done, just if you jump out on a leap of faith. That’s what Shoni and Jude did.”
"Every place we go, there's a big following for them," Cardinals’ coach Jeff Walz said. "What we're doing now, it's not just the basketball part of it."
