Jude Schimmel come home


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.

One thought on “Jude Schimmel come home”

  1. We sat down and talked with Coach Walz Friday and played the interview on our weekly radio show at http://www.cardinalcouple.com

    Walz indicated Jude would play. She practiced Thursday and was going to talk with Walz, tell him how she felt and would probably practice Friday.
