Louisville All-America Shoni Schimmel didn't have to wait very long to be selected in the Women's National Basketball Association draft.

Schimmel, a member of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla in eastern Oregon, will take her flashy play to the next level. She was selected in the first round and was the eighth pick by the Atlanta Dream.

Schimmel attended the draft at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., earlier this month. She said she is ready for Atlanta's camp next month.
