Emily Potter Scouting Report

 

Emily Potter is a dominant center. The 6’5 left-handed center imposes her will in the post on everyone, runs the floor like a wing and can stretch the floor with her ability to shoot threes. Additionally, she can guard 3-5 defensively. She can finish around the rim with either hand and uses her body to create space to score over anyone. She can pick and pop or roll and is equally effective with both.
