Tyshawn Taylor- Senior Star

I got to speak with St. Anthony's senior Tyshawn Taylor. The 6-4 guard had a solid game for the Friars. Tyshawn told me that the team compensated for not having Dominic Cheek by running, running, and running some more. Clearly it worked, as the boys from St. Anthony's had a very impressive victory. In addition, Tyshawn said that it was the team's fast-paced up-and-down game that led to them neutralizing 7-4 Jakub Kusmieruk, who had a tough game. I discussed what being #1 in the nation and being a part of St. Anthony's means to Tyshawn. He told me that being number one and being on a great team was a big reason of why he came to St. Anthony's. As well, Taylor, who is headed to Marquette next year, told me that part of what went into his college decision was the chance to play early. Tyshawn liked that he would be able to log minuts for the Golden Eagles as a freshman, and also that he would be able to play in the Big East. Tyshawn Taylor is a player to watch down the road, as is his current squad, the St. Anthony's Friars.
