Scotter had the good fortune to grow up in Chicago during the 90s, and has contributed statistics orientated commentary to SBN's Blogabull since 2006. As a young basketball geek he didn't think twice about watching the 1995 NCAA Championship game, and he immediately fell in love with both the women's game and the UConn program.

Being a long distance fan of UConn has become dramatically easier over the last 15 years, and he'll try to find original and interesting ways to write about women's basketball most covered team, while also keeping an eye on the rest of WCBB as well as the professionals playing overseas.

Mario Austin to play for the Bulls' summer league team

17

Apparently Mario Austin is back on the Bulls radar. He was drafted in 03' and has been decent in Europe. The Bulls still own his rights so he's a minor asset that could be included in trades or used to fill in the bench after a big trade. Maybe he just wants out of Europe or maybe the Bulls are actually interested in getting some value out of their long lost 2nd round pick.
