Scouting: There are only a handful of players who possess the raw speed, strength, and agility of Pre Stanley. However, Pre Stanley combines her raw athleticism with a polished skill set that makes her one of the few, efficient, 3-level scorers in the country as she shot 45% from the field as well as a blistering 47.8% from the three point line. Whether scoring off-the-catch, where she ranked #2 in the country per 100 possessions (Synergy Sports Analytics) in spot-up field goal percentage (51.2%), or scoring from the mid-range off the dribble, where she ranked #11 in the country per 100 possessions (Synergy Sports Analytics), there is nothing Pre Stanley is not capable of doing at an extremely high level with or without the ball in her hands. Defensively, Pre’s lateral quickness, strength, and length allow her to guard multiple positions on the perimeter, while also enabling her to help on the boards, as she averaged 5 rebounds per game, and posted a career high 14 rebounds in the Sun Belt Conference championship game this season.
