Conway star: Team’s needs first (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 1/9/2022)
On a team where its leading scorer, Chloe Clardy, is rated as one of the top 40 juniors in the nation, its sharp-shooting off-guard, Jaiden Thomas, has signed with Louisiana Tech, and its supporting cast and bench could rival that of some colleges, Scott has flourished. She averaged 15 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks in the 4 games following that 62-37 win at Greenwood – a game where she finished with 17 points, 12 rebounds and 8 blocks.
Still, it wasn’t until the Lady Wampus Cats went to Duncanville for the Sandra Meadows Classic that others began to see how much of a force she can be.
Scott averaged a double-double during the team’s five-game run, including a 26-point outing against Clovis (Calif.) West in the quarterfinals. Whereas Clardy was awarded the tournament’s top offensive player honor, Scott was chosen as the event’s best defensive player.
“I think I’ve done OK, but of course, I’m always wanting to get better,” Scott said. “I stay in the gym, and I think hard work pays off. I take it one step at a time, one game at a time. But at the same time, I try to keep the same mindset, and that’s to go in and dominate.”
