Indian Country 52 #29 – Schimmel
“Shoni Schimmel, a rookie who doesn’t even start for her own team, put on a record-breaking performance — scoring 29 points to help the East beat the West 125-124 on Saturday in the first WNBA All-Star game to go to overtime.”
– NY Times, Schimmel’s 29 Leads East Over West 125-124 in OT.
“Showtime Shoni lived up to her nickname in her first WNBA All-Star Game. And a wild game it was.
Schimmel scored an All-Star game record 29 points and had eight assists as the East pulled out a 125-124 victory Saturday over the West in the first WNBA All-Star Game to go into overtime. The Atlanta rookie was named the game’s MVP.
Tamika Catchings, an All-Star for a record-tying ninth time, made a layup with 6.9 seconds to go to give the East the lead and then knocked the ball away from Skylar Diggins on the defensive end to seal the victory. Diggins finished with 27 points and seven assists, leading a furious West rally to force overtime.
“They call her Showtime Schimmel,” Catchings said. “She came out and put on a great show.”
Brittney Griner, of the host Mercury, scored 17 points, including a first-half dunk, for the West.
Schimmel, who grew up on a reservation in the tiny northeast Oregon town of Mission and has a vast Native American following, broke the All-Star Game record of 23 points set last year by Candace Parker.”
