A pair of former Bearcats will continue their professional careers in the NBA G-League as Trevon Scott signed with the Greensboro Swarm and Keith Williams joined the Raptors 905 yesterday.
Scott appeared in 135 games at Cincinnati from 2017-2020 en route to earning All-AAC First Team recognition, AAC Defensive Player of the Year and AAC Most Improved Player as a senior.
Williams played in 121 games with the Bearcats from 2018-2021. During his senior campaign, the New York native received All-AAC Second Team honors after averaging 14.3 points per game.
Both players were a key part of back to back conference championships as Scott scored 12 points and eight rebounds to help the Bearcats beat Houston in 2019 AAC Tournament title game.

Following his college career, Scott played for the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2021 and had previous stints in the G-League with the Cleveland Charge, Ontario Clippers and Salt Lake City Stars.
Even though he hasn’t reached the NBA yet, Williams has already seen plenty of success in New Zealand after leading the Otago Nuggets to a league championship as a rookie last season.
Williams racked up a game-high 34 points on 11/18 shooting from the field and collected Grand Final MVP as the Nuggets secured an 81-73 win over the Auckland Tuatara in the final round.
Make sure to stay tuned as we monitor the former Bearcats in the G-League! Scott and Williams should meet later this month since the Swarm are scheduled to host the Raptors on March 24.
