Salmenkivi is a skilled big with good athleticism and effort levels. If she can improve in her decision making offensively and slide down to the forward positions, she will be a matchup nightmare. she is currently a Mid-Major Division 1 prospect.
Body and athleticism
Salmenkivi has good size for a Center, but would stand out more if she made the transfer to the power forward position. She is a good athlete, and knows how to use her body to get good offensive position, as well as position on the boards.
She has good form, but does not shoot very efficiently. She needs to improve her shot selection and work herself to the line more, where she is lethal.
Position and offense
She is a very capable scorer and has good vision for a big. She can improve her decision-making and shot selection to improve her overall offensive production. She is also a skilled big that can handle a bit, so it would be nice to see her transition to the power forward (or even combo forward) position at the next level.
Defense and rebounding
She uses her body well to get good position on the boards then attacks loose balls with her speed. She is an active defender and rotates to the ball well. She does not block many shots, but she contests shots and collects a decent amount of steals as a big.
She plays with a high motor and is aggressive in finding her shot. The skills and effort to be a floor leader are there, she just needs to improve her basketball IQ.
