Fairlfield, Conn.— Callan Taylor of the Sacred Heart women's basketball team was named to the 2011-12 ECAC Division I Women's Basketball All-Star Second Team yesterday.
Taylor led the Pioneers to their fourth NEC regular season title, and third NEC Championship this season earning their way into the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Chapel Hill, N.C. Named to the All-Tournament Team, the small forward averaged 11.7 points and a team-leading 9.3 rebounds in the three rounds of the NEC Tournament. Last weekend, against Georgia Tech, the Yellow Jackets held Taylor to only 10 points and four rebounds. Knowing she was a driving force for the Pioneers, Georgia Tech minimized Taylor to only 31 minutes in the game after she picked up three quick fouls
She wrapped up her final season in a Pioneer uniform nearly averaging a double-double with a team-leading 16.3 points and 9.6 rebounds, and her 49.5 shooting percentage was a league best this season.
