CARL JUNCTION, Mo. – Former Carl Junction standout Katie Scott is heading to Tulsa – committing today to continue her basketball career at Oral Roberts University.
“I adamantly believe that the people you surround yourself with determine your college experience, and there are no better people than those at ORU,” Scott says, “I think the staff, players, and students will be people who elevate me to a better version of myself on and off the court.”
The former Missouri Gatorade Player of the Year just played her freshman season at Grand Canyon University in Arizona. Scott was the team’s leading scorer, posting 16.2 points per game. She was also second on the team in rebounding with 5.6 rebounds per game.
For her big season, Scott earned WAC Freshman of the Year honors and was a 1st team All-WAC selection.
Now, she’ll have the chance to play closer to home – while still playing at the Division I level.
