2008 Gahanna Lincoln graduate Robbie Taylor has once again reached a personal basketball milestone. As he did his senior year with the Golden Lions to move up to 3rd on the school’s all-time leading scorers lists, the Mount Vernon senior guard recently scored his 1000th career point. Last night in Richmond, Indiana, against the 21st ranked Indiana University East, Taylor drained a 3-pointer with less than 1 minute left in the contest, and celebrated his 21st birthday with a 21 point outburst and his 1000th career point.
So far this season Taylor is off to a fast start and is averaging a little over 21 points per game. Just this past weekend Taylor was named Tournament MVP of the A+ Auto Brokers Invitational Tournament. In May of this year, Taylor will graduate from the NAIA Division II school with a business finance degree and plans to reside locally. Below is a link to a story about last night’s contest.
