One of the most exciting additions to the roster for year two of Coach Gerlich’s tenure is that of Bre’Amber Scott. Scott was the top-rated player out of Arkansas in 2017 coming out of high school. She spent two years with Mississippi State, then played a season at Little Rock before joining the Texas Tech squad this year.
In her time at Mississippi State, Scott helped the Bulldogs to a 70-5 record over her two seasons. After scoring just a little over one point per game her freshman year, she averaged over seven points per game shooting at a 48.5% clip in her sophomore campaign. That year she also shot 43% from deep and 85% from the free-throw line. In the summer of 2019, Scott helped lead Team USA to a silver medal at the World University Games, averaging 5.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in the tournament.
Scott was dominant in her short, nine-game run at Little Rock, leading the team in scoring average with 18 points per game. She entered the transfer portal midway through the year, finishing with an 18-4-2 average mark.
Going into the 2021-2022 season as a Red Raider, Bre’Amber Scott joins Vivian Gray and fellow transfer Lexy Hightower as the only non-freshman guards on the team. Scott’s ability to stretch the floor and shoot at a high percentage from deep will mesh well with Gray’s ability to attract lots of defensive attention.
