Taylor Honorable Mention All-American

Wisconsin senior Jordan Taylor earned All-America honorable mention, the Associated Press announced Monday. A second-team All-American a year ago, Taylor is just the second Wisconsin player to multiple All-America honors since the AP began selecting All-Americans in 1948. Michael Finley was a three-time honorable mention pick from 1993-95.

Taylor led the Badgers averaging 14.8 points and 4.1 assists per game and helped the UW to 26 wins, the third-highest single-season total in school history. A first-team All-Big Ten pick, Taylor finished second in the Big Ten with a 2.6 assist-to-turnover ratio.

In three NCAA tournament games, Taylor earned All-East Regional honors after averaging 16.0 points and had 15 assists with just three turnovers while leading Wisconsin to the Sweet 16.

Taylor finished his Wisconsin career seventh in school history with 1,533 career points and set an NCAA record with a 3.01 career assist-to-turnover ratio. The Bloomington, Minn., native equaled the school record by appearing in 136 career games, while tallying 464 career assists, second-most in UW annals.
