12. Tiana Mangakahia, 5’6 G, Syracuse
The decision by Mangakahia to return to school for one more year didn’t really change her outlook much in terms of the draft. She’s an end-of-the-first round player, and would have been in 2019, too. But the known knowns with her are too impressive to ignore, even as several teams wonder about how her size translates. Her assist percentage is so high it looks like a typo, 51.8 in 2018-19, 60.4 in 2017-18. She cut her turnover rate dramatically, increased her three-point efficiency significantly, elevated her rebounding level, and continued to steal the ball at around a four percent rate. She’s older for a prospect, but that just means WNBA teams can get more mature performance on a rookie scale rate. She’s going to help a team, and right away, wherever she goes.
