One of the most recognisable defenders in the world, Mentor is a star in more ways than one with her leadership coming in droves both on and off the court. She is a dominant ball winner thanks to her speed and quick feet to deny her opposition crucial hands to ball, while her cleanliness with hands over pressure keeps her away from the whistle and most importantly, in play to turnover critical ball. Standing at 191cm the 35-year-old is towards the tail end of her career but has shown no signs of slowing down with her impressive court coverage, intimidating lean over the shot, silky footwork and attacking drive often spurring the Magpies and Roses on.
Mentor’s vision both on and off the ball enables her to dominate the one-on-one but she is at her best when she can go out hunting, switching up her play style with the drop of a hat to confuse the feeder and propel the ball back up the court. One of the most experienced players in the Roses and Magpies camp, Mentor can change the course of a game in an instance while her attitude towards the game is testament to her talent and constant ability to improve.
