Isaiah Taylor named to AP’s All-Big 12 team

Posted March 7th, 2016


One day after Texas point guard Isaiah Taylor was tabbed to the Big 12 coaches’ all-league first team, Taylor was picked to the the Associated Press’ first team as well.

Taylor, a 6-foot-3 junior leads the squad in scoring average (15.0) and assists (4.8). In 2015, he set a career-high in shooting percentage (.421) as the fifth-best scorer in the league.

Taylor is currently dealing with a plantar fasciitis injury, but coach Shaka Smart says he’ll manage Taylor’s practice time this week in advance of the Big 12 tournament.


Kansas’ Bill Self was named coach of the year, and Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield was named player of the year.
