March Madness 2011: Jordan Taylor Impact Player

Jordan Taylor of the Wisconsin Badgers figures to be a player you will hear about a lot during March Madness 2011. You might recall that Jordan Taylor went off on Ohio State in the second half allowing the Badgers to pick up the victory on the then undefeated team, well tonight he destroyed Indiana on the road for 39 points. At the time that he went off on Ohio State he was just left off the Cousy Award finalist for the best point guard in the nation, they corrected that mistake but he likely won't win despite likely being the most deserving of the award. Jordan Taylor has proven without a doubt he is the most complete point guard in the country, he has an epic  assist to turnover ratio that leads the nation and on nights like this he can fill the hoop every way possible as evidenced by 39 points on 11 of 19 shooting, 7 of 8 from 3, and 10 for 10 from the line and yes he had 1 turnover. Taylor usually doesn't need to be the go to guy as the Badgers also have Jon Leuer but he was in foul trouble and Taylor proved he can put the hammer down on a team, something that becomes critical in the NCAA tournament.

Are the Badgers as sexy as UNC or even still BYU no they aren't but they are a team that will cause you all sorts of problems no matter who you are. With the Badgers having a go to guy like Taylor that is now being talked about as Big Ten Player of the Year, a Jon Leuer, three point shooting, and the best free throw shooting percentage and the fewest turnovers in the nation if your team draws the Badgers you got a bum deal.

  1. I believe that all we basketball fans around the globe looking forward for this tournament. For the most of us, NCAA basketball is more interesting than NBA or any other competition in the world.
