Callan Taylor Named Co-NEC Player of the Week

For the second week in a row, Callan Taylor has earned the title of Choice Hotels Northeast Conference Player of the Week. This time she shares the honor with Long Island's forward Ashley Palmer.

Taylor is currently leading the league in rebounds and ranks second in scoring through the first two weeks of the season. The senior put forth a phenomenal performance last Wednesday against Lehigh. Against the Mountain Hawks, who are looking for their third NCAA Tournament appearance in four years, Taylor recorded her second double-double in three games this season. Her 22 points led all scorers and her 15 rebounds place her second in NEC single-game total so far. The forward shot 71.4% (10-14) from the field, including 2 for 4 from the arc.

Taylor and the Pioneers head to Colgate to face the Raiders Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.
