​Myeisha Scott fittingly wears No. 23 for the Provine Lady Rams. And like the most famous No. 23 – Michael Jordan – she does most everything for her team.

​Scott, a 6-foot-1 senior, averaged 21 points, 12 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots in two games last week for Provine.

​For her outstanding performance, Scott has been named the Performance Therapy/Mississippi Scoreboard Metro Jackson Girls Basketball Player of the Week.

​Scott had 26 points, 13 rebounds and 3 blocked shots in a 51-39 loss to Ridgeland and 16 points and 11 rebounds in a 56-54 overtime loss to Callaway. Scott’s career high is 31 points against Murrah earlier this season.

​Scott, an East Central Community College signee, averages 22 points, 15 rebounds and 5 blocked shots for 4-8 Provine, which starts three sophomores and a junior along with Scott.

​“Myeisha is definitely the motor of our team,” Provinecoach Erica Stringfellow Smith said. “She has led the team in scoring, rebounds, blocked shots and deflections. Myeisha is a natural rebounder and very versatile on the floor. She attracts two to three defenders every time she touches the ball.” 

​Scott averaged 14 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 1.7 blocked shots for 17-9 Provine last season as a junior. She was named to the second team on the Priority One Bank/Mississippi Scoreboard All Metro Jackson team.
