Jessica Schultz


Jessica Schultz was a massive part of the Mineral Point 2015-16 state championship girls basketball team. In her senior year, she averaged 16.5 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. She earned first-team all-conference all four years in high school, AP all-state honorable mention selection, and WBCA first-team all-state honoree.

After high school Schultz played for the Northern Michigan Wildcats from 2016 to 2020.  She was ranked fourth in the league with 1.7 blocks per game and earned multiple Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Honors. She reached 1,000 points early in the 2019-2020 season, ranking her 18th in program history.

Recently Schultz moved to Luxembourg, a small country in northwestern Europe to play for the BBC Les Sangliers Wooltz, which translates to the Wiltz Wild Boar. Schultz and her team have been struggling with playing basketball while the pandemic is happening, with many having to quarantine and not being able to play. Her team is the top team in Luxembourg.  She plays alongside ten other teams, all from Luxembourg. We’re sure Schultz has a great future in front of her, and we wish her well!

Jessica informed me (via email) that she fought hard through her first game of the season. They were down by 10-15 points the whole game but ended up winning by 4. Schultz couldn’t practice the entire week going into the game due to a sprained ankle, but she still managed to score 19 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks in 40 minutes of play. 

Schultz and her team have unfortunately not been doing great this season. They are currently in last place but that doesn’t stop her. She is having an amazing rookie season. Her best game was against AB Concern where she had an outstanding 30 points and 25 rebounds. She currently leads in rebounds throughout the league and is also 7th overall in scoring and 2nd in blocks. 

The Les Sangliers Wooltz, unfortunately, lost a nail-biter to Basket Esch but Schultz had a great game in which she scored 28 points and had 12 rebounds. She has been doing great throughout the season averaging 21.7 PPG, 14.5 RPG, 1.3 APG, and 1.3 BPG and is shooting 47% from the field and 36% from the three. Schultz hopes to have a great rest of the season and hopes to improve.
