The cancer was discovered in 2015, and she had surgery and was thought to be cancer-free. But it recently returned. She had been undergoing treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center in her hometown of Houston.

Baylor coach Kim Mulkey posted on Instagram that she was “absolutely heartbroken at the loss of one of the most beloved members of the Lady Bear family. Chameka Scott was one of my first recruits at Baylor University and the heartbeat of the 2005 National Championship team.”
