10. Ruthy Hebard, 6’4 F/C, Oregon
I asked Oregon coach Kelly Graves, in the moments following Oregon’s Final Four loss to Baylor, whether he thought about the difference-maker Ruthy Hebard might have been if healthy. He demurred, but now he’ll get a chance to see it, a rested and ready Hebard lining up next to Sabrina Ionescu next fall. Hebard has steadily improved from an already-impressive freshman season, managing to finish a close second to Megan Gustafson in field goal percentage this past year, almost doubling her assist percentage and cutting her turnover percentage significantly. She could stand to improve at the free throw line, and a block percentage more in line with her 5.2 in 2017-18 than last year’s 2.9 would be a strong indicator a WNBA team could get her minutes at the five. You can be sure, whatever is required, Graves will make sure she’s ready.
