ESPN Player Evaluations

The Mecca-Feb '12: Showed sense of timing and competitiveness with late steal and game-winning free throw against then-No. 2 Riverdale Baptist. These may be the final components in a package that rates well against the top prospects in the class. She still is best with the ball in her hands. Taylor sees openings and goes after them, is slithery in traffic and can finish effectively with her left hand. She has a tendency to float on her pullups and shoot one-handed pushes. These are correctable with added strength and balance. Her perimeter shot still is largely the product of her athleticism and focus. It otherwise is unconventional with a low release point. Defensively, she packages length, mobility and anticipation to be a disruptive force on the ball as well as in help situations. (Nelson)

Nike Nationals-July 10: When we first saw Taylor in the fall of 2009 she was definitely a player to keep an eye on. Although she is young she displays a great deal of maturity when she is on the court. Listed at 5-9, she has long limbs and it seems like she will get taller. She is an excellent ballhandler and is comfortable changing directions and using both hands. The Long Island native has a very smooth pull-up jumper and she takes shots within the rhythm of the game as she looks to keep her teammates involved in the offense. Taylor seems comfortable playing point guard but has the ability and athleticism to play anywhere on the perimeter, which make a great college prospect as a combo-guard.

Guard with impressive individual skills. Attacks off the dribble and can slash and create effectively. Strong on ball defender who anticipates well at that end of the floor. (Lewis)
