Tre Scott, a former University of Cincinnati Bearcats standout forward, scored 15 points on 6-of-9 from the field - including 3-of-5 from 3-point range - with six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 30 minutes of action in his NBA G League debut for Salt Lake City in the Stars' 117-98 loss Wednesday to Erie.
The Utah Jazz announced Scott's signing in December.
Social media reactions:
Scott, 24, wasn't selected in the 2020 NBA Draft after redshirting and playing four seasons at UC. He signed in October with Leones de Ponce of the Puerto Rican Baloncesto Superior Nacional.
As a senior for the Bearcats, Scott averaged 11.4 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.5 steals in 33.7 minutes per game. He was named 2019-20 American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year, AAC Most Improved Player, First Team all-AAC and earned the league's Sportsmanship Award.
Scott told The Enquirer that the pandemic prematurely ending his college career "will haunt me for the rest of my life because it's a question that I'll never get to answer."
Former Xavier Musketeers standout Trevon Bluiett is among Scott's SLC teammates.
