Northrop’s Scott A Key To Purdue’s Season

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WANE) – With Sterling Carter, Terone Johnson, and Ronnie Johnson all exiting West Lafayette Purdue could be relying heavily on Northrop grad Bryson Scott as the team’s primary ball handler for the 2014-15 season.
Northrop’s all-time leading scorer, Scott played primarily off the ball at the two guard spot during his freshman season last winter. Scott averaged 6.2 points put shot just 35.9 percent from the floor. According to an article on NBCsports.com Scott is hoping to take 50,000 shots during the summer to improve his accuracy.
While incoming freshman P.J. Thompson is a pure point guard, Scott could be Purdue’s no. 1 ball handler given his experience. The former Bruin notes that he’s looking to improve his decision making after learning on the go in the Big Ten.
“I feel like I tried to do it all in one play,” says Scott. “And that’s something that I’ve learned quick as I headed into the Big Ten season. Everybody’s so much bigger, but I know now that if I make the simple play then you can get a simple play.”
