All about scoring

Scott holds offensive hoop camp
Bryce Scott led Oak Ridge?s High?s basketball team in scoring last season, averaging 22 points a game. Scott?s ability to shoot and score, whether spotting up for a three, shooting off the dribble and around a screen or taking the ball to the basket is a big reason why he earned a scholarship to play basketball at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. Scott is a scorer and that?s why the basketball clinic he ran Sunday and Monday at Oak Ridge High focused on offense, as its name, Oak Ridge Dribbling and Scoring Clinic, implies. Scott ran the clinic along with Folsom High grad and Lafayette senior guard Tony Johnson. The clinic featured around 50 players from fourth grade through high school. ?I have a really strong passion for basketball and the best players know how to dribble and score and I wanted to teach local kids how to do that,? Scott said. ?Tony and I know how to control the ball and how to score and we want to teach how we work to score. It?s definitely an offensive camp.? Scott, who spent the month of June helping his dad, Steve, coach the Oak Ridge varsity team, will spend the rest of his summer preparing to go to Lafayette in late August.
