During his sophomore season at Lamar, Scott averaged 6.5 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. “I am thrilled to have Scott Day in our program,” says Coach Price, “He has played for great coaches and has a high level of maturity.

The Tigers also have signed another Arkansas high school product in 6’9 center Bryce Miracle from Bentonville. Bryce played for Coach Mike Nelson at Bentonville High School.

Bryce also blocked 29 shots during the 08-09 season and was named honorable mention all-conference. “Bryce is a great fit in our 09 class,” says Price, “He’s a tall young man with a great skill set. He is from a great family and basketball background and those are certainly crucial elements in our recruiting.” Bryce is interested in pursuing a degree in education at OBU.
