Less than two months after finishing their college careers at the University of Louisville, two former Cardinals begin WNBA play tonight.
Schimmel, the No. 8 pick in the WNBA draft, will open with the Dream against the San Antonio Stars. She was an All-American at U of L and scored eight points in the only preseason game for the Dream.
Taylor was the No. 36 pick for the Lynx and became just the seventh player to ever be taken last in the Draft to make a 12-man roster. She will be with the Lynx tonight on the road playing against the Washington Mystics.
