Shae Kelley Scouting Report:

Shae Kelley is a physical, yet very skilled 4/5.  She can stretch the defense out to the 3 point line or dominate them in the paint.  She can start the fast break and finish the break.  She battles with bigger players all the time and is a matchup nightmare.  Defensively, she can guard positions 2-5 and uses her great athleticism to stay in front of players.
