“I have this sense that everybody thinks that just because Mike’s back, all is well,” Bennett said. “It’s not that easy. He’s going to help us. He’s a very good player, and he’s worked hard, but this is about everybody improving. This is a collective team more than I’ve had in my first two years. I think Mike’s going to do well, but I don’t think it’s fair to say ‘You’re the answer.’ “

There are few decidedly simple solutions, as Scott well knows. His second senior year starts Sunday when the Cavaliers play host to South Carolina State, and he still has yet to savor an NCAA tournament trip.

He understands that won’t happen instantaneously, perhaps showing more patience than he gives himself credit for.

“I tell my teammates when people starting talking about the NCAAs, you definitely want to embrace it,” Scott said. “But just worry about the process of getting there. Just take it day by day. Don’t worry about the tournament in October. Don’t worry about that until March.”
