Each week, NCAA.com's Starting Five recognizes some of the top women's basketball players in the country based on their performances from the previous week of action. Because of her impressive weekend at Georgia State, Pre Stanley was chosen this week as one of the five student-athletes that are showcased on a national scale.

Stanley joins Charli Collier (Texas), Naz Hillmon (Michigan), Cece Hooks (Ohio), and fellow Sun Belt opponent, Alexus Dye (Troy).

The Rockledge, Fla., native dominated Georgia State averaging 27.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.0 steals, 3.0 assists, shot 64.5 percent from the field, and 93.3 percent from the line. She played a pivotal role in the Apps registering their first Sun Belt sweep of the season, first league road sweep since 2015-16, and season-long three-game win streak.

Stanley had a hand in 53.2 percent of the team's points (73/137) through the two contests with 55 points and all six assists going for 3-pointers for 18 points. Stanley posted game-highs in points in both contests highlighted by a personal-best 29 points in Saturday's win, scoring 10 of her 16 second-half points in the fourth period. The 29 points are also the most in a conference game this season.

On Saturday, she ignited a 14-0 run with six straight points in the final period to help App push past GSU. On Friday, Stanley tied a then-season high in points with 26 on an efficient 9-of-11 performance from the floor, while 16 points came in the second half (12 in the fourth). She also grabbed a game and season-high eight rebounds and recorded a season-best four steals in both wins.

The lead guard for the Apps was also named the Sun Belt Player of the Week and the National Mid-Major Player of the Week by College Sports Madness.

Stanley is having a stellar season, where she is averaging career highs in scoring (17.4 ppg), field goal percentage (.500), 3-point field goal percentage (.550), free throw percentage (.761), and assists per game (2.6).

She enters this upcoming weekend second in the Sun Belt in scoring and fourth in field goal percentage. She is making her way up the all-time scoring list, as she is eighth all-time with 1,403 points.
