Scott was selected by Atlanta with the No. 43 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Over five seasons at Virginia, Scott averaged 26.6 minutes, 11.9 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. After leading the team in rebounds in both his sophomore and junior seasons, he suffered an ankle injury in the tenth game of his senior year that forced him to have season ending surgery.
After receiving a medical red shirt, the 24-year-old was granted a fifth year of eligibility and helped lead Virginia to the school's first NCAA Tournament berth in five seasons. He finished the season as a third team All-American as voted by The Sporting News as well as an honorable mention All-American by the associated press.
