Salem Senior Guard
She has an extra gear that very few high school players have at their disposal. She gets from one end of the court to the other in a flash and has the ability to shoot with either her left or right hand quite naturally.
As a varsity player, she's helped get the Spartans to the state semifinals three straight years and this season they have reached the state championship game. They'll play Courtland Saturday at 7 p.m. in Richmond.
Taylor averages 19 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists, 3 steals a game.
Salem head coach Dwayne Harrell said, "She recognizes the floor well, when to drive and when to pull back. She's a natural point guard and is able to attack or find the open person."
Taylor had scholarship offers from a number of schools including East Carolina, Richmond, and Seton Hall but ultimately chose to play at Wake Forest. While in Winston-Salem, she will have the ability to play a lot.
"She has a high basketball IQ. She has all the fundamentals down and it makes it easy for me to coach her" and that all translates to the next level," said Harrell.
