It's not the size of an athlete that determines ability, rather the passion and attitude that players brings to the game. On Saturday, 11th ranked Central Washington edged visiting Northwest Nazarene 69-61. A game that aired live on SWX.
The Wildcats were led by their smallest player, Chris Scott. He scored a career-high 23 points coming off the bench. The 5'7 spark plug shot over 50 percent from the field, and more importantly, this senior energized his teammates to collect their ninth straight win.
Scott said, "Coach just told me to be aggressive. We have this thing, you know coach winds me up. He goes behind my back turns the thing like I'm some toy or something. But it works... It gets my mind going... Blood flowing and all that. And I was just aggressive and luckily shots were falling for me."
Head coach Greg Sparling said, "He's an energy guy. He's like the energize bunny out there. I mean when he gets going. Everybody else gets going. And people feed off of him."
