Assigned Reading: Colorado State’s Antwan Scott overcomes obstacles


Antwan Scott will have a chance to be Colorado State’s starting point guard this season during his senior year.

The Grambling transfer averaged 15.7 points, 4.8 boards and 3.7 assists per game as a junior and now has some talent around him as the Rams could be a sleeper in the Mountain West this season.

But for Scott to reach his current status, he’s had to deal with a lot of family obstacles, including the death of his mother, who was also once addicted to drugs.

Matt L. Stephens of The Coloradoan¬†profiled Scott’s journey today and it’s an excellent piece that is worth your time. Scott goes over his personal struggles, his family involvement — including the support of his father, who rarely misses a game — and the reasons he picked Colorado State over an attractive SEC program like Tennessee.
