Scott not eligible to suit up

Turell Scott learned a lot of lessons with the Brandon University Bobcats men’s basketball team last season, but the most painful one came away from the court.

The 21-year-old guard was placed on academic probation at BU and, as a result, will miss this school year and the Canadian Interuniversity Sport season with the Bobcats. Scott passed enough classes to remain with the team, but his grade point average fell to the point where he will sit out the season and miss a year of university.

Bobcats head coach Gil Cheung found out shortly before training camp started last week and was disappointed as he had high aspirations for Scott. However, he knows the 6-foot-6, 180-pounder from Port Coquitlam, B.C., will use his time off to better himself.

“He understands some of the things he would like to change, especially academically,” Cheung said. “He’s maturing and hopefully the year off will allow him to reflect a little bit and get things a little more organized. He’s a great kid and we stand behind him. He’ll be in and out with us and trying to keep up the best he can.”

Scott appeared in 18 Canada West conference games last season, starting in a pair in his sophomore season. He averaged 4.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 14.9 minutes of court time per game. He also recorded three blocks and six steals.

Scott plans to bounce between B.C. and Brandon this winter, and will train with the Bobcats to prepare for his return for the 2015-16 season.

“For sure I’m going to support my team and I wish them all the best and that they can do well,” he said, “and when I get back then I can help them the best I can.”
