Ernest Scott: 6'7"/225 lbs. pos 3 / 4 (forward)
Ernest Scott is a solid 6-foot-7 forward out of Valdosta State that has one of the most consistent jump shots in the league. "I really worked hard during the summer focusing on my technique and mechanics of shooting," said Scott.
Because of Ernest's long-range shoot capability, it allows the Vipers to spread the floor offensively and give his teammates easy scoring opportunities. "I do seem to attract a lot of attention at times but our coaches have created offensive schemes that play to the strengths of each of us," said Ernest.
Last year , Ernest was playing in Germany and is excited about the opportunity of playing at home. "My parents didn't get to see any of my games when I was overseas but know, playing for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, they watch every game for free online and that's so cool," Scott stated.
Ernest brings an intensity to practice everyday and soaks up everything from the coaching staff. "It's important to be able to fit into the system but most of all you've got to put in the time, stay focused and be prepared," said Scott.
Ernest Scott is an exciting player to watch and you can expect to see him in the NBA All Star D-League game this season. Last year he came in second in the three-point shooting contest but plans on bringing the first place trophy home this season.
