New York shooter Sydney Zambrotta has signed to play for the University of Louisville

Add a New York shooter to the University of Louisville women's basketball roster as the Cardinals signed sharpshooter Sydney Zambrotta. She's a 5-foot-9 guard from Christ the King High School.

University of Louisville women's basketball coach Jeff Walz likes his shooters and he has another in the fold with the signing today of New York guard Sydney Zambrotta.

The 5-foot-9 Zambrotta has been compared by some to former U of L star Shoni Schimmel.

Zambrotta, who scored 63 points in a varsity game as an eighth-grader, is considered an elite shooter and has a little flash and flair to her game. She is from North Babylon, N.Y., and attends Christ the King, one of the elite girls' basketball schools in the country.

A top-50 prospect in all the rankings, Zambrotta made a huge jump this summer during the AAU season.
