Mosman eager to start career as a Cyclone

Shellie Mosman knew she wanted to be a Cyclone from an early age and didn't waste any time letting ISU women's basketball head coach Bill Fennelly know – she committed prior to her freshman year of high school.


"I really wanted to go there and I had been going to camp there since I was little," Mosman said. "I knew the facilities and I knew the people. It's close to home for me and the people are great; it's just a great fit for me."


The Carroll High School point guard was a unanimous selection to all-Raccoon River Conference team and also garnered 3-A first team honors from the Iowa Newspaper Association as a junior.


She led Carroll to a 23-3 (18-0 conference) record and a berth in the state tournament.


Mosman was among the Raccoon River Conference leaders in most statistical categories. She was first in individual scoring (18.4), assists (5.4) and free throw percentage (82.8). Mosman was third in 3-point percentage (41.3) and fourth in rebounds (8.3).


This summer Mosman has been busy playing for her IBCA Select AAU team. She had time to visit Ames early in the season and got together with some of her future teammates.


"I talked to [Iowa State's other two commits]," Mosman said. "We had camp together at the beginning of June and I got to know them pretty well. The other five [players] that are going this year were there too, so it was nice because every one was there at the same time."


Mosman said her family comes down to the ISU games whenever they get a chance and were pleased with the women's basketball squads performance last season.


"They did awesome," she said. "It was fun to watch and it was great because I knew some of the players personally. Knowing the people makes it even more fun to watch."


She also gave high marks to Coach Fennelly.


"Coach Fenn is a great guy," Mosman said. "[He's an] awesome guy on and off the court and I'm looking forward to playing for him."
