Scott brings NCAA Division I coaching experience to the Bears’ sideline, heading north to St. Louis after a two-season stint as an assistant coach at Southeast Missouri State (2017-19). The Redhawks put together a 27-34 record during her two years and third- and fourth-straight Ohio Valley Conference tournament berths.

As a student-athlete on the women’s basketball team at Mizzou (2011-15), Scott still holds the program records in career three-pointers made (367), single season three-pointers made (112) and single game three-pointers made (11). She was named 2012-13 SEC Co-6thWoman of the Year while leading the nation in three-pointers made per game average (3.5). She also picked up an invite to the 2015 State Farm College three-point competition.
Scott graduated from the University of Missouri in 2015 with her undergraduate degree in business marketing and with a Master of Education in Educational, School and Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in positive coaching.
