Senior Earns Second Straight All-Conference Pick
DESTIN, Fla. – Senior Sher’Ryan Scott (Fort Deposit, Ala./Wallace State CC-Selma) of the West Florida women’s basketball team was named to the All-Gulf South Conference second team at the GSC Basketball Tournament Welcoming Party at HarborWalk Village in Destin, Fla. on Wednesday night.

Her 33 points was also the most for an Argonaut since 2006. Not only did Scott lead the team offensively, she also was a big contributor on defense, highlighted by a career high nine steals in the regular season finale against Valdosta State on Feb. 25.
UWF, the No. 5 seed in the tournament, will face No. 4 seed West Alabama on Thursday at 5:30 p.m., with the winner advancing to face either Delta State or Christian Brothers in the semifinals on Saturday. For information on all UWF Athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com.
