*Great 3-point shooter
*Keeps turnovers to a minimum
*Not an explosive athlete
Stanback hasn’t been turning up on mock draft boards, but he’s got a skill the NBA can use — perimeter shooting.
Stanback was voted third-team All-Mountain West and helped lead the Runnin' Rebels to a 26-9 record and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. He was second on the team in scoring (12.5 ppg), which ranked 10th in the MWC.
12.5 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 1.2 apg, 1.1 tpg, 0.9 spg, 27.9 mpg, .450 FG, .455 3PT, .820 FT
In 2011, Stanback shot 45.5 percent from 3-point range, which led UNLV and the Mountain West.
What Insiders Say:
UNLV coach Dave Rice
“If not the very first play call of the game, very early in the game we’re calling something to get [Stanback] a shot,” Rice told the Las Vegas Sun. “We make a concerted effort to try to get him a good look to start the game. … Chace Stanback has made so many big plays in so many big games. Our guys all get confidence from Chace."
