HOW SHE FITS
Listed at 6-4 and likely to play the forward spot in the WNBA, Pedersen's strength is her versatility and ability to play on the perimeter. She's a hybrid small/power forward which might be ideal in Coach Richardson's trapping offense.
Although her three-point shooting percentage fell to just over 23 percent in her senior season, she has shot from mid to late 30s in her first three seasons indicating her ability to make that shot to if asked to play outside.
Pedersen's Final Four experience at Stanford and her ability to impact the game without having the ball in her hands makes her an versatile perimeter and low post prospect who could fit-in on almost any time in the league.
