Rookie Schimmel owns WNBA's top-selling jersey

NEW YORK (AP) — Rookie Shoni Schimmel of the Atlanta Dream has the top-selling jersey in the WNBA. The No. 8 draft pick out of Louisville leads the list announced Tuesday, ahead of Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock. It's the third time in four seasons a rookie has held the top spot. Brittney Griner of the Phoenix Mercury was the top seller last year. She's sixth on the list. Chicago Sky star Elena Delle Donne was third, followed by Minnesota's Maya Moore, who was first in 2011 and 2012. Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker, who led sales from 2008-2010, was fifth and the Mercury's Diana Taurasi seventh. Rookies Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley of Washington were eighth and 10th, respectively, with first-year player Kayla McBride of San Antonio at No. 9. Schimmel, voted a starter for Saturday's All-Star game, propelled the Dream to No. 1 on the league's team merchandise list.
