During the 2020-2021 season, Schneider appeared in 23 games for Constanta. He averaged 16 points, five rebounds and five assists, all of which were top-5 marks in the league.
At Lansing, Schneider was the Lions leading scorer for the 2014 State Championship team that completed an undefeated season at 25-0. He competed for the UC-Davis Aggies for four seasons while averaging double-digit points in three of those seasons.
The Basketligaen is recognized as Denmark's most competitive basketball league and Horsens finished in second in the league standings last season.
