She averaged 16.6 minutes per game during a stretch in December of 2010 and played in 23 of 30 games as a true freshman. Prior to last season, Scott tore her Achilles and was not able to play. Since then, she has been working hard to be able to get back on the court to play as a Bronco. For this upcoming season, Scott is almost ready to bring her “A game” on to the court. Scott (IS) shared with SantaClaraBroncos.com (SCB) what her recovery process has been like and how much she looks forward to playing with the team again.
