Josh Scott's European Performance Encourages Tad Boyle

After a five game European exhibition tour, Colorado Buffaloes head coach Tad Boyle is really encouraged about the direction of the basketball team and the play of freshman Josh Scott.

Scott, Colorado's prized recruit for the 2012 year, led the Buffaloes with 17.4 points and 7.0 rebounds per game in Europe, en route to two wins and three losses for the team.

"Josh [Scott] is everything we thought he would be and maybe a little bit more," Boyle told Ryan Thorburn of BuffZone.com. "He has a knack for scoring down low and he's aggressive, which lends itself to basketball at this level. He rebounded the ball well, too."

"I was encouraged with how he chased down some rebounds and that he gets to line because he's a good foul shooter."

Colorado's basketball season will begin on Friday, Nov. 9 when they host Wofford College at the Coors Events Center.
