Princeton is off to a tremendous start this season, staying undefeated early on and senior Jaheim Taylor has been the lead catalyst with his firepower. The Bulldogs have been an offensive show, averaging nearly 83 points per game and dominating most of their competition, with four of the seven wins coming by 40 or more points. Taylor has been a huge part of the success, along with his teammates and in speaking with Taylor, this team is coming together.
“It has been really good despite all the COVID guidelines,” he told Phenom Hoops. “The team has been really good with communication and playing together as a team.”
“I’ve been finding my spots and putting the ball in the basket,” he continued about his success this season. “The team is doing well moving the ball around and feeding the hot hand. I fit in as a point guard and a leader for this team. Everyone feeds off my energy on and off the court. So, I like to always be energetic and keep my composure.”
Taylor would describe himself as an all-around guard that can not only score, but also facilitate, rebound, and can get stops on defense when needed. That can all be seen with the stats he has been posting, on both ends of the floor.
Right now, this is an unsigned senior that holds an offer from Johnson CC. But keep a lookout for this young man producing all throughout the season, hoping to lead Princeton to new heights this season.
