Atlanta Aliens Has Another Player Playing Overseas 

Former Atlanta Aliens ABA pro basketball standout, Shasta Scott, recently signed a professional contract with Flores Trinidad (Uruguay-LUB). This marks the third Alien this season to land on a professional team overseas. Brent Petway (Greece) and Charles Corbin (Austria) are the other two Aliens currently playing overseas.

Atlanta Aliens GM/Head Coach Alan "Duck" Richards is very pleased to have had the opportunity of coaching all three players under his leadership. "The ABA is a great league to use as a stepping stool to help lift players to a higher level" said Richards. "Our goal is to prepare all of our players with intense training so that they can meet their personal goal of playing overseas, NBADL or even the NBA." 
Prior to arriving to the Atlanta Aliens, Scott finished his final college season with Point University in Atlanta, Georgia. As a Skyhawk, Scott averaged 16.3 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 1.5 APG and 75 percent from the free throw line his senior year (2011-12). He also received Appalachian Athletic conference (AAC) Third Team All–Conference honors, leading the AAC with 110 three pointers made. Scott shot an astounding 42 percent from behind the arch and set Point University’s record for three-pointers made in a single game (10). 

“Point University will always be a place I will never forget,” shared Scott. “Coach Wilson and Coach Marshall took a gamble on me last season knowing that I only had one year left to play basketball. But God placed me right where I belong and that was at Point University then Atlanta Aliens. I couldn't ask for a better senior year than what I had at Point on and off the court. I honestly feel by coming to Point I also became closer to God by giving him all the glory for everything.”

“I am excited for Shasta to get this opportunity to compete at the next level and watch all his hard work pay off," commented Alan Wilson, men's head basketball coach. "I’m sure he will give God the glory as he continues to use his talents for Him.”

Both Atlanta Aliens and Point University would like to congratulate Shasta Scott on this phenomenal achievement and wish him and Flores Trinidad the absolute best this season.
