Santa Clarita, CA -- New Mustang basketball coach Ken Sugarman has strengthened his backcourt with the recent signing of Keegan Scott for the 2014-15 campaign.
Scott, who is a classic combo guard, comes to TMC from Spirit Lake, Idaho, where he played for Coach Tony Hanna at Timberlake High School. He already has a connection with the college through his sister, Zoe, who played four years on the women's basketball team and is the program's all-time three-point shooter.
Asked why he chose The Master's, Scott answered, "God opened and closed doors to make it for possible for me to attend. I'm so excited because of Coach Sugarman and the entire TMC community because they are so caring and genuine."
The 6-1 guard capped off a productive prep career this past spring, leading the Tigers to the 3A Intermountain Conference championship and a second consecutive 3A District crown.
On the way to conference MVP honors, he led the Intermountain in scoring (18.3ppg), rebounding (7.1rpg), and assists (3.6apg). It was the second straight year that Scott was a first-team, all-conference selection.
Scott excelled in the classroom, too, earning membership in the Honor Society and showing up on the school's honor roll on a perennial basis.
Unsure of his major, Scott does have career plans for being an athletic trainer.
Looking forward to coaching Scott over the next four years, Sugarman said, "I know that to succeed in the GSAC you need to recruit tough guys who can shoot. Keegan fits that mold. He is a physical defender with a relentless work ethic. Keegan's decision-making, shooting ability, and skill set will enable him to play both guard spots for us.
I believe that Keegan has the potential to be a knock-down shooter for us. His coachability and drive to succeed give him a great opportunity to make it happen. Keegan is a leader by example, an excellent student and a tireless worker. I am thrilled that he is joining the Mustang family and can't wait to see how God will continue to grow him and use him through his college experience at The Master's."
