FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – IPFW won the Summit League regular season title last season. Adding a former Big Ten guard certainly won’t hurt their chances of a repeat.
After sitting out the 2015-16 season following his transfer from Purdue, Fort Wayne native Bryson Scott is ready to start contributing to IPFW’s win total.
Northrop High School’s all-time leading scorer, Scott averaged 6.2 points a game at Purdue during his freshman season. After seeing his minutes decline as a sophomore – where he averaged 3.8 points a game – Scott decided to return home.
Summit League Player of the Year Max Landis has graduate, and Scott will help to fill that scoring void on the perimeter. With the return of Mo Evans, who missed the second half of last season with an academic issue, and the return of Summit League first-teamer John Konchar. the Mastodons will boast one of the most talented set of guard in the conference.
The Scott family is no stranger to success on the basketball court. Bryson’s twin brother, Brenton, was the MVC Newcomer of the Year at Indiana State as a redshirt freshman. Last season as a sophomore Brenton was named second team All-MVC.
