NEW YORK – 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 was the top seller last year. She's sixth on the list.
Chicago Sky star Elena Delle Donne is third. She's followed by Maya Moore, who was first in 2011 and 2012. Candace Parker, who led sales from 2008-2010 is fifth. Diana Taurasi is seventh.
Fellow rookies Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley of Washington are eighth and 10th, with first-year player Kayla McBride of San Antonio at No. 9.
Schimmel, voted a starter for Saturday's All-Star game, has propelled the Dream to No. 1 on the league's team merchandise list.
