May 1, 2013
WASHINGTON - George Washington men's basketball alumnus Tony Taylor was named to the 2012-13 NBA Development League All-Rookie Third Team on April 26.
In his first professional season after graduating from GW in May 2012, Taylor helped the Tulsa 66ers reach the semifinals of the NBA D-League playoffs. He was the only 66ers' player to see action in all 50 regular-season games, including 24 starts, and averaged 7.0 points and 3.2 assists in 22.6 minutes.
In five playoff starts against the Canton Charge and eventual champion Rio Grande Valley Vipers though, Taylor increased his contributions to 11.2 points on 54 percent shooting, 5.4 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 32 minutes per game. He recorded his first double-double in the 66ers' finale against the Vipers in Game 2, scoring 12 points and dishing out an NBA D-League playoff-high 12 assists.
Taylor closed his four-year career at GW in 2012, and he currently ranks fourth all-time in program history in assists (486), 10th all-time in steals (130) and 19th all-time in points (1,345).
