Concluding his Oregon career as the school’s second-leading scorer of all time (1,939 points) and seventh on the Pacific-10 Conference’s career list, the two-time first-team all-conference selection was one of only 11 Ducks to ever lead the league in scoring in a single season. Taylor averaged 21.3 points per game as a senior and became one of only four players in school history to lead the team in scoring three different seasons (joining Ron Lee, Stan Love and Blair Rasmussen). He scored 20 points or more on 43 occasions during his collegiate career, including a career-high 36 points (vs. Arizona State) which ties him for 13th on Oregon’s single-game ledger. Also posted double-double performances against Washington State (23 pts., 12 reb.) and Seattle Pacific (34 pts., 11 reb.) while completing his career second in career field goals made (714), third in free throws (453), fifth in steals (147), eighth in assists (300) and 10th in career free throw accuracy (.795). The Beaverton, Ore., native represented the United States in the 1987 World University Games and was drafted in the second round by the Atlanta Hawks in the 1988 NBA draft.
