Madison Scott Repeats as SEC Freshman of the Week
Third SEC Freshman of the Week Honor for Ole Miss This Season
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Ole Miss women’s basketball forward Madison Scott has been named SEC Freshman of the Week for the second week in a row, the conference announced Wednesday. Scott is now one of five Rebels to have ever earned the honor multiple times in the same season.
Scott – an ESPN five-star addition to Ole Miss from Indian Head, Maryland – shot .471 overall and .667 from the free throw line while averaging 11.0 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 assists across two wins vs. Jackson State (89-65) and at George Mason (64-34). Against Jackson State, Scott notched her first career double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, combining with Shakira Austin to become the first Rebel duo to have concurrent double-doubles in a game since 2018. Scott has been a rebounding machine for the Rebels, nabbing at least seven boards in five of her six games played, including her last five in a row. She leads all SEC freshmen in scoring (12.2 PPG) and rebounding (7.8 RPG), and ranks 13th nationally among all freshmen in rebounding.
Ole Miss returns to the court on Dec. 31, when it will travel to No. 5 South Carolina to open the 2020-21 SEC season on New Year’s Eve at 5:30 p.m. CT on SEC Network.
