Congrats to Jeffery Taylor for earning SEC Freshman of the Week honors for his 18-point effort against Alabama A&M last Wednesday.
Taylor has had an outstanding rookie season in only his first two months on West End. He's second in scoring (13.8), rebounding (6.3) and steals (10) for the Commodores. He's also electrified the crowd with several jaw-dropping dunks.
Coach Stallings touched on Jeff's natural talent in David Boclair's story in the Nashville City Paper this morning.
“Jeff’s ability to get up and play above the rim, his explosiveness to the basket – all of those things are key ingredients to our team,” Stallings told the Nashville City Paper. “It’s something we’ve not had a lot of around here, and he gives us a different dimension that way.”
I have a feeling this won't be the last time Taylor's recognized by the conference. And in case you missed last week's victory over Alabama A&M, here are a couple of Taylor's highlights.
