    Poor shooting stats, but the kid has a lot of moves and a great step back move. He looks "jukey." You hope his shooting % develops, as his form looks good. 41% FGs and 34% on 3s is not great for someone scoring at this volume against low tier competition.

    I like that Al Skinner coached him. Skinner can coach. Too bad he is stuck at Kennesaw State, the man deserves better.

    Yeah bad FG %. Noticed he scored and shot better vs. upper comp, 21ppg (.478 3pt) vs. Butler, Wash., FL St. and Tex Tech. His career .347% 3pt shooting is very
    Jeremy Lamb like (.348) while his 80% FT shooting should translate. If they are going 3 guards, which seems to be inevitable lately, you'd hope they'd get some bigger ones (6-5+) for those sets. But Scott doesn't seem to kill it on the boards either...from his stats.

    The board stats should definitely be better from what I see of how he moves around.....

    Scott shot 46 percent on 2’s, 41.5 on three’s in last 7 games in February.
    Scored 22 points in second half against Butler on 9-15 shooting,4-6
    on three’s. Missed a good player.
