    Countdown for Brenton Scott


    Register to remove this advertisement
    Well it's a fairly safe bet that Brenton Scott will be the next Sycamore to reach the 1,000 point mark in the ole' white and blue, and be the 38th member of the club. He currently sits at 871 points (129 points away) but at the rate he is pouring them in, it won't take long at all to reach the mark. Good luck to Scott on his quest to be one of the best scorers to ever play at ISU!

    Countdown for Brenton Scott

    Anyone got the time to do the math if he averages 20 points a game over the rest of his career where he would end up on that list??

    I think he's capable of putting up that kind of an average this season and next.

    Just doing a quick average of a low 60 estimated games remaining and averaging 20 points per game would be another 1200 points to his 871 giving him 2071 points. And this is a low estimate as he will surely have more games unless there are injuries!

    If he averages 20 points a game, and plays 33 games this season and 33 games next season, he will end his career with 2,138 points.

    1. 2850 - Larry Bird (94 games) - 1976-79
    2. 2370 - John Williams (113 games) - 1982-86
    3. 2147 - Jerry Newsom (85 games) - 1965-68
    4. 1642 - Butch Wade (73 games) - 1964-67

    So basically looking at a good chance of moving into the top 5 and a long shot but possibly at top 3! Nice

    With the 6'11" recruit from Switzerland/Austria and the 6'9" behemoth from GA, the apple of ISU couldn't become sweeter. I see no need to open such a can of worms re: transfer.

    BTW, great "history lesson" today in the Trib-Star re: the heritage of next year's "Swiss Cheese:"

    Gonna need to add Tell City to the Jasper/Ferdinand tour once he arrives. They've produced some great HS players over the years.

    Agree. He's stayed this long and Lansing lets him do his thing most of the time. Lansing might not like it but he doesn't have a choice - make no mistake Scott has the automatic green light.

    Don't really want to change the subject, but we all know that Scott had some issues when he first arrived on campus during his redshirt year. And I thought it was interesting that the announcers during the BSU game said something like Scott was suspended 5 different times during that year and was also kicked out of multiple practices. It speaks volumes to Scotts maturity since he has been in Terre Haute of the kind of leader that he has become for the team. You can tell that he is completely bought into the program and it shows in his accomplishments and development. He and Lansing both deserve a ton of credit for the turn-around because Lansing did take some heat on here in years prior about "getting on" Scott for mistakes and it appears to be paying off now.

    Kid could have mailed it in and program could have mailed it in on him. Assuming he makes it through the rest of his career without issue than it's a really good example of a program working with a student athlete on growing as a person and helping them succeed on and off the court.
