Members of the Shelby Harper fan club are delighted by the 5-foot-4 walk-on’s performance for the University of Louisville women’s basketball team. With all the injuries, Harper is spending a lot of time on the court. And she  just keeps getting better.

Playing 39 minutes Saturday against Syracuse, she connected on three three-pointers while collecting 11 points and adding three assists. Unfortunately, she fouled out for the second consecutive game.
