Scott scored in double-figures on 13 different occasions including seven of her last eight games played. Scott recorded a career-high 36 points on Jan. 16 in a win against Chicago State. In that game, she also worked her way into the record books by going 11-20 from three-point range, which was a new WAC and school record for a single game performance.

She was named WAC Player of the Week for the week of Jan. 13-19.

High School: Scott signed during the fall 2011 early signing period. The ESPN HoopGurlz website ranked Scott at No. 38 nationally for wing players. HoopGurlz also ranked New Mexico State's 2012 commitments of Scott, Sasha Weber and Shay Young among the top-20 mid-major recruiting classes in the nation.

Aggie assistant coach Aarika Hughes was key in recruiting Scott to Las Cruces.

Scott averaged 22.4 points, 8.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 3.3 steals per game as a senior.
