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 ranked fourth all-time in program history in assists (486), 10th all-time in steals (130) and 19th all-time in points (1,345).
