NIU would be a 5-13 team in conference going into the season with this roster, last season. With the MAC losing a good deal of talent this year, hopefully they can finish around .500 in conference.

No offense to this kid, but is this really the best we can do as a D-1 program? CC players who aren't even dominating at that level?

I would have to agree, no offense to him at all, seems.like.outstanding guy, but i feel like Monty has waved the white flag. Those who projected the easy schedule to rack up wins is probably the route he will take. I bet we see 5 lower division teams this year

Shot 56%. Not bad numbers but not dominate. I think averaging double digits in points is decent given that he will likely be an off the bench kid. Decent for a late scholarship that probably wasn’t supposed to be available.

I know little about CC basketball. Do they rotate a lot so that ALL players have the chance to exibit their skills in hopes of getting a scholarship to a 4 year school?

RE: Newest MBB Transfer
You guys are not excited by Monty's recruiting?

Here's some stuff dug up from the past.

Prep Hoops Report / Posted On: 08/8/16 12:00 PM
Neuqua Valley 2017 forward Nathan Scott created a buzz this July. Projectable frame for the big wing. Long arms and room to fill his frame out strength wise. Handles it well for his size and likes to run the floor in the transition game. Quick around the basket. Even displayed a glimpse of a jump shot from mid-range and off the catch from three.
“I am a 6’6” guy that knows how to get to the basket. I can take quick shots. I can score anyway.”
He switched over to Chicago Lockdown for the second live period and it was a major benefit for him.
“Lockdown is good. They saw potential in me. My teammate Alex Filo helped me out there because I was just playing on an ok AAU team and they gave me more opportunities playing with Chicago Lockdown.”
North Dakota State is the only school that has shown interest in Scott.

Prep Hoops Report / Posted On: 05/10/17 8:00 PM
Neuqua Valley’s Nathan Scott is a 6’6” unsigned 2017 recruit that is looking to go to JUCO for a year. He has a lot of tools to work with. The senior has a nice frame and length for a wing. Very projectable as you can see once he gets in a college weight program he could add on significant strength. Smooth athlete that can put it on the deck attacking from the high post with a couple dribbles. Likes spin moves in the lane when going to the hoop. Passes it fairly well for a wing. Streaky shooter, but can connect from three with a nice looking stroke. Defensively has potential as he contests shots on the perimeter and his length allows him to recover blocking shots. Worth a serious look from all JUCOs.
Scott chatted with PHI about his senior season.
“My senior year went good. We started off struggling a lot, but at the end me and teammates came together and we almost won regional as we lost to West Aurora. I got better. My handles got much better. My teammates pushed me. Got to thank Alex Filo and his parents for helping get where I am.”
The development in his handles over the last year has significantly improved his all-around game.
“Last summer I didn’t really have handles. Only thing I could do was one or two dribbles. I could slash and make layups. Now I can drive and how to use my handles better. Use my left hand to get to the rack. I have been working on my leaping ability to finish better.”
He is playing with All-In Athletics Connor 17U this spring.
“I want to show what I can do before I commit to junior college before I stay one year or two years at a junior college before I transfer.”
Scott says he has a wide range of JUCO’s showing interest from schools in Texas, Nebraska, and Illinois. He is open to all schools.


Three-inch growth spurt helps Neuqua Valley's Nathan Scott push forward
June 30, 2016 / Naperville Sun
Who's the new kid?
It has been a question on the minds of teams this summer facing Neuqua Valley and Nathan Scott, who will be a senior in the fall.
Scott isn't a new face, but his different look does stand out. It's what happens when you mushroom three inches after the season, growing from primarily a JV guard into a 6-foot-5 varsity forward with enticing promise.
"Eating my vegetables and drinking my milk, I guess," said Scott, sheepishly trying to explain his late growth spurt. "Every game I hear people coming up to me, saying that I got so much better.
"I'm just doing whatever I can to help my team win."
Indeed, Scott isn't just tall. His skill set was on display June 22 on the final night of the Geneva Summer League.
Long and lean, Scott fluidly glided to the basket. He dropped in a pair of midrange jumpers in a semifinal loss to West Aurora.
Although Scott needs to add more pounds to fill out his longer frame, Neuqua assistant Tyler Sutton said it's hard to keep him off the court.
"He's just one of those guys who makes plays," Sutton said of Scott. "You can't pass up on those guys. Those kind of guys always have to be in the game."
Scott has taken an interesting path to a prominent role at Neuqua.
He grew up in Naperville, attending Peterson Elementary. Scott moved to the Detroit suburbs in junior high, but came back as a sophomore to live with his father.
His dad doubles as his trainer. The two went to the park every other day to work on honing his jump shot. Scott used to jump too high. A corkscrew release would cause the ball to spin sideways out of his hands.
"I was so inconsistent with it last year," Scott said. "Coaches told me that I had to work on my jump shot. I feel like I would just throw it. It feels more natural now."
Scott received a brief taste of varsity action as a junior, playing two games. His best moment came against Glenbard North in the last game of the year.
"He's a wing, and now we're trying to put him at the four (power forward) to give him more time," Sutton said. "He's a kid who can play multiple positions."
It's been a nice summer for Scott and the Wildcats, who are coming off an 11-19 record, their first losing season in 16 years.
Neuquau graduated its top two scorers, Joe Sieger and Jacob Cushing, and return Alex Filo, Blaise Meredith and Jonathan Tan from its core group.
The Wildcats knocked off Hillcrest this summer, and reached the semifinals at Geneva. They finished by taking fourth in the 32-team Glenbard East Shootout.
A coach from Bogan confided to Scott that Neuqua took him by surprise.
"I love hearing stuff like that," said Scott, who plays AAU with the Bolingbrook Magic. "A lot of teams look at us from what we did last year, but we are a different and better team.
"We're a family, like brothers. We all do stuff together and we don't have any drama."

I know as little about CC basketball as you and maybe less. Here are Nathan Scott's stats and highlights for his 2 seasons at Olney CC:

Lots of people in here criticizing Montgomery for picking this kid up. He looks like a Baller to me. Worth a scholarship. Pretty explosive and a nice shooting touch.

He looks pretty good and athletic in his juco highlights. I don’t see where they will get enough scoring as it doesn’t look like they picked up any scoring guard. Geno likely will average close to 25pts as I predict he will be the best 3pt shooter in the MAC

Hopefully Scott puts some weight on, they need some more size down low.

I don't know if people are criticizing the player as much as the fact that the last three players Montgomery has plucked from the Juco ranks (Anastasios Demogerontas, Zaire Mateen and Alize Travis) haven't exactly set the world on fire. Taking more of a wait and see approach before we get excited.

You are correct, Thorpe was very good. My bad, I forgot that Triton is a junior college.

No, he played last year at SIU. I saw him on tv a few times he's very athletic and good be a good player for us. Does this mean his dad will be an assistant coach?
