I get the reservation about how a player translates to the next level, but I don't see any way she is NOT a WNBA star.
Her shooting is otherworldly. If she shot exclusively catch-and-shoot 3s, she would absolutely be shooting over 50% from distance. As it is, I guarantee no one in the country (men or women) take 3-ptrs with a higher degree of difficulty than her, and she is still hitting 38% on huge volume.
But her strongest asset is her passing. She has a vision and court sense that is rare. Combine that with her being 6' tall with a great handle, and she has the ability to throw one-handed passes off the dribble that just make you shake your head. I have never seen anyone better at feeding the post, and her cross-court passes are like something from LeBron, you hardly ever see that in the women's game.
Her game will have to change at the next level. She will need to demonstrate more restraint. And although she is a strong driver in college, that will be more difficult in the pros. She will also need to improve off the ball. But she has 2 elite skills (shooting and passing), and those players always rise.
