Head Coach Wendy Schuller: "Nicole Scott is a senior who has played a lot of minutes in her three years at Eastern. She also has the ability post double-double's. A key for her this season will be for her to consistently go to the glass and rebound for us. We have been a good rebounding team in the past and I think we can do that again, Nicole's rebounding numbers will play a big part in that team stat for us. Nicole also understands that the biggest thing we need from her is to be more consistent on the offensive end of the floor. Nicole has the ability to get 20 points and 10 rebounds. We don't necessarily need those numbers from her nightly but we will count on her to be a major contributor every game. Nicole committed herself this past summer to physically be in the best shape of her life and she is. She wants to go out with a great senior year and we expect her to."

2009-10: One of four co-captains for the Eagles. She enters her senior season with 68 career blocked shots to rank sixth in school history. Had she met the minimum of 2.5 free throws per game to qualify, her .769 career free throw percentage would equal the school record.

2008-09: Scott had an outstanding junior season, as well, and the best display of her skills came on Dec. 13 against Pacific that helped her earn Co-Big Sky Player of the Week honors. In that contest, Scott nailed all six of her shots, including three treys, in the best shooting performance by an Eagle since Felice Moore also went 6-of-6 at Montana State on March 6, 2004. Additionally, Scott crafted an impressive streak of consecutive free throws made with 29 straight from Nov. 25-Feb. 7, just two shy of being one of the 22 longest such streaks in Division I history. She led the league in free throw shooting in Big Sky games by converting on 86.5 percent of her attempts (32-of-37). She was also an intimidating force inside, placing sixth in the conference in blocks per game (0.97).

2007-08: Scott was second in the Big Sky Conference in blocks per game with 1.34, an average that also ranked her 106th among NCAA Division I players. She helped raise her average significantly with an impressive stretch from Feb. 16-March 1 when she had five blocks in three straight contests (each Eagle season-high totals in that category). She finished 18th in the Big Sky in points per game with 10.3 and 13th in rebounds per game with 6.0. She also was proficient from three-point range, making 3-of-6 against both Washington State on Nov. 18 and San Francisco exactly a month later, 4-of-5 at Montana on Feb. 2 and 5-of-8 versus Portland State on March 1. Scott also led the team in scoring on seven different occasions. A 20-point performance on Dec. 18 at San Francisco helped the Eagles to their highest point total of the season in a 95-86 loss to the Dons. The rebound total remains the second-highest of her career. She had four double-doubles in the 2007-08 season, her fourth coming at the hands of Portland State when she had 21 points, the fourth-highest point total by any Eagle in the 2007-08 season, and 10 rebounds.

2006-07: Scott was a force to be reckoned with throughout the season, as her 1.1 blocks per game placed her eighth among Big Sky Conference players. She started the final 11 games for Eastern. She also had double-figure point totals in six of those games in addition to three other times when she came off the bench. Scott had four blocks in Eastern's season-opening win over Montana Tech. The Eagles out-blocked the Orediggers in that contest 10-0. She had 19 points in Eastern's tight 84-82 loss to Portland State, her second-highest point total of the season. She also had eight rebounds and an EWU season-high five blocks in that contest. That block total tied for the second-most by a Big Sky Conference player in 2006-07. Scott had an amazing performance against Sacramento State, hitting on 8-of-11 shots (72.7 percent) and scoring 18 points. In her next game against Montana State, Scott scored 23 points on 10-of-23 shooting (both shot makes and attempts were EWU season highs). She had three blocks against Sacramento State in the team's meeting in California's capital city.

High School: Scott's senior campaign at Carson High School saw her earn first team All-Northern Conference, second team All-State and team MVP accolades after averaging 14 points and nine rebounds per game. She helped lead the Senators to the Northern Region Tournament all four years she played at Carson. Scott played for the Senator volleyball team, as well, earning second team All-Sierra League accolades as a sophomore, first team as a junior and honorable mention after battling injuries her senior season. Scott played club basketball for Jam On It Basketball Academy.

Personal: Born 10/13/87 in Santa Maria, Calif. She is the daughter of Michael and Judith Scott. She has two brothers, Jeremiah, 27, and Justin, 24. Scott is majoring in exercise science.
