He finished his college career in Virginia State, with a second place in both, points over the career (2368) and over a season (892 in 2006-07), plus sixth place in scoring average (19.7).

He averaged 13.5 points per game in 12 games, but as the Skyliners were nearing the bottom of the table, management opted to release Scott.
