2014 WNBA Draft - Round 1, Pick 8: Atlanta Dream select Louisville guard Shoni Schimmel

The Atlanta Dream have selected Louisville guard Shoni Schimmel with the eighth pick in the 2014 WNBA Draft.

Wows: She can shoot, does so a lot, and hits them at an impressively high clip. With her shooting and ball handling ability, she'll be an interesting fit with Atlanta's uptempo style of play.

Wonders: How much of a ball handling role will she be able to take on in the WNBA? She had that ability in college but spent a lot of time off the ball as well. Atlanta could use the supplementary ball handler.

Worries: Schimmel, despite her three point shooting, is not a particularly efficient scorer inside the arc and spent a lot of time shooting threes in college. Will she be able to score any more efficiently against WNBA defenses?
