GW Men's Hoops Alumnus Tony Taylor Taken in 2012 NBA D-League Draft
Former Colonials Guard Selected by Tulsa 66ers with 32nd Pick
Nov. 2, 2012
WASHINGTON - George Washington men's basketball alumnus Tony Taylor was selected by the Tulsa 66ers in the second round of the 2012 NBA D-League draft on Friday evening.
A 6-foot-1 point guard from Sleepy Hollow, N.Y., Taylor was taken with the 32nd overall pick by the 66ers, the D-League affiliate of last year's NBA Finals runner-up Oklahoma City Thunder.
Taylor concluded a sterling four-year career with the Colonials last March, leading the team in scoring (13.1 ppg), assists (4.3 apg), field goals made (136) and free throws made (102), while finishing second on the team in steals (42) and three-pointers made (31) as a senior in 2011-12.
A Second Team All-Atlantic 10 selection in 2011, Taylor ranks 19th all-time at GW with 1,345 points, fourth all-time with 486 assists and ninth all-time with 130 steals. He started 117 of his 121 career games, averaging 31.6 minutes per game over his four seasons.
Taylor, who graduated from GW with a degree in psychology last May, will look to join GW men's basketball alums Mike Hall (Tulsa 66ers, Dakota Wizards) and Pops Mensah-Bonsu (Fort Worth Flyers, Austin Toros) to play in the NBA D-League when the 66ers' season tips-off Nov. 23 against the Texas Legends.
