Taylor Named Navy Athlete of the Week
ANNAPOLIS, Md. –– Navy women’s basketball player Morgan Taylor (So., Evans, Ga.) was selected as the Navy Athlete of the Week earlier this week.
Taylor was named the Most Valuable Player of last weekend’s Navy Classic as she averaged 20.5 points and 6.5 rebounds a game in victories by the Mids over North Dakota State (67-54) and St. Bonaventure (86-48). This included a career-high 24 points in the title game against the Bonnies. She made nine of her 11 field goal attempts in the championship game and shot 65.2 percent from the field on the weekend. The 5-7 guard also totaled 17 points –– two shy of tying her most recent career high –– and snared a career-best seven boards in the tournament-opening win over the Bison.
Taylor continued her strong play Thursday when she tallied 13 points and seven caroms in Navy’s victory over Monmouth (73-49).
