Former Louisville Cardinal and current Atlanta Dream guard Shoni Schimmel is quickly becoming a household name for WNBA fans.

The Atlanta Dream rookie currently has the hottest selling jersey in the WNBA. The No. 8 pick out of Louisville leads the list announced Tuesday, followed by Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock, Chicago Sky star Elena Delle Donne and then Minnesota’s Maya Moore, who was first in 2011 and 2012.

Shoni will also be front and center for the WNBA All-Star game this weekend in Phoenix. Despite only starting two games this season for the Atlanta Dream, Schimmel was the leader in votes among eastern conference guards and will start the game along with teammate and former Louisville great Angel Mccoughtry.
