From childhood, Skydiggs or Sky was given freedom to play the sports of her choice and her family always supported her. Renee Scott, her mother said,

We’ve just tried to support her and do whatever we can to help her. We’ve stressed that it’s about so much more than basketball. It’s just a stepping stone. She plays because she loves it. We’ve never pushed her to play.

Maybe that’s why this 5 feet 10″ gorgeous has a very close relationship with her family including her grandfather, who by the way has helped Sky a lot, morally and financially.
