Marquette University

Wisconsin's Jon Leuer is fouled by Marquette's Scott Christopherson in the 2nd
half. The University of Wisconsin Men's basketball team hosted Marquette
University at the Kohl Center Saturday December 8, 2007. Steve Apps-State...

Commitment

Scott committed to play basketball at Marquette his sophomore year of high-school.

2007-2008

Scott entered 2007-08 as a member of a four member recruiting class for Marquette. The other members included Trevor Mbakwe and Patrick Hazel. Christopherson selected Marquette over UW-Madison and Washington State.

Scott missed several games early in the season, as he recovered from knee surgery. He appeared in 18 games, averaging 1.3 points, .7 rebounds and .1 assists, shooting 42% from the floor and 40% from three-point range.

Transfer

Scott was unhappy and considered transferring while Tom Crean was still at Marquette. He saw Dominic James, Jerel McNeal, Wesley Matthews, David Cubillan and Maurice Acker in front of him, and Tyshawn Taylor and Nick Williams coming in behind him, and did not believe he had a role.

With every team, different coaches assume different roles. Buzz assumed the role of the guy that rode them hard, and Buckley took the father figure role. Buzz rode them hard, and Scott didn't take that kind of coaching well. Scott was 50-50 on leaving before Crean left.

When Crean left he waited to see who the new coach was. When Buzz was hired, they immediately call a team meeting, and Buzz went in and told the team himself that he was their new coach. He explained how he would run things, how the team would play. Scott knew the up and down style Buzz wanted did not favor him. When the meeting ended, Scott stayed behind and asked Buzz if they could talk. He told Buzz he wanted a release. Buzz asked him to think about it for a couple of days but Scott had made his mind up, so that was it, but they wanted to keep it quiet until after the banquet.

Scott already knew what schools he was going to consider, even before Buzz was hired. His longtime high school girlfriend was a student at Iowa. She was considering a transfer to Iowa State due to her major. He selected Iowa State and she transferred to ISU.
