Schimmel sisters will appear at Fairbanks basketball tournament


Shoni and Jude Schimmel, sisters who took their basketball skills from an Indian reservation in Oregon to the NCAA Division I women’s championship game, will make an appearance in Fairbanks this month at the annual North American Basketball Tournament.

The Schimmels, who built a huge, nationwide fan base while playing at Louisville, will appear at UAF’s Patty Center on the final day of the March 17-19 tournament.

“I would say they’re probably the biggest Native athletes out there,” said Edwin Bifelt, a tournament organizer.
