Among the missing on the University of Louisville women’s basketball team the past five games has been Jude Schimmel. She has been recovering from an ankle injury sustained in a 77-68 win over Temple on New Year’s Day.
Her speed and abandon on offense makes her a special player. She was averaging 24 minutes of playing time per game, contributing 6.8 points and 4.3 assists, prior to the injury. She also brings a high level of enthusiasm and a contagious smile that lights up the basketball court.
Here’s hoping she’s back in action Sunday when the women take on Memphis at 1 p.m. at the KFC Yum! Center.
