Former Mott Community College All-American guard John Taylor has become a dominant force at Fresno Pacific University in California. The 6-foot-1 junior is leading the PacWest Conference in scoring by an unbelievable seven points per game (25 ppg).
Taylor is the best pure scorer I’ve ever seen at the JUCO level.
On Saturday afternoon, Taylor poured in his season-high to lead his team to an easy win. The shocking thing to me is that Taylor is lighting up the NCAA D-2 ranks at a more feverish pace than he did at the JUCO level.
Fresno Pacific beat Academy of Art 116-80 Saturday in a men’s basketball game that included a 44-point performance for one player and a triple-double for another.
The Sunbirds were led by junior point guard John Taylor, who scored a career-high 44 points, hitting four 3-pointers, and also going 18 for 20 from the free-throw line.
Taylor fell two points shy of the school record for points in a game. set by Don Jones against Vanguard in 1969.
