Scott Listed Among All-Time Great Three-Point Shooters

May 22, 2007

ATLANTA – Former Georgia Tech All-American Dennis Scott has been ranked the third-best three-point shooter in history in a recently compiled list by the website Rivals.com.

Breakdown of the Top 10

Rivals.com writer Andrew Skwara wrote:

“Scott, the only player in the top 10 who left school early to enter the NBA Draft, believes they also share a common mental bond.

“All shooters might not admit it, but we all have a bit of an ego,” Scott said. “I took pride in being able to hit shots from the farthest distance with ease. “You have to have unconditional confidence. If you are 0-for-10 in a game with five seconds left and the coach looks at you, you can’t say don’t come to me. You have to want the ball.”

Scott certainly did. No one may have pulled the trigger at a greater rate from beyond the arc. The 6-foot-8 sharpshooter took an average of 8.4 3-pointers a game in college, more than Redick’s 8.1. In fact, Scott – who skipped his senior season – was on pace to finish with 467 3-pointers, which would have given him 10 more than Redick.”

Scott, who know works as a color analyst on Atlanta Hawks’ radio broadcasts, remains Tech’s all-time leader in three-point field goals (351) and ranks second among ACC players. He led the ACC in three-point field goals per game each year of his career.
