EDISON, NJ – Men's basketball sophomore standout, Quinn Taylor, has been named as the MAAC Male Student-Athlete of the Week, announced by the league office today.
On the court, the 6-4 guard/forward is averaging 7.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.7 steals per game for the Peacocks. Taylor is the team leader in total rebounds and steals on the year and ranks top 10 in the MAAC in both categories. The Amarillo, Texas native ranks fifth in both total rebounds and defensive rebounds, sixth in offensive rebounds, and fourth in steals.
Taylor scored a career-high 17 points against Elon this past Saturday and added 12 rebounds for a double-double, to the lead the team. Additionally, he is the lone Peacock to record a double-double this season, having already registered two. His 14 rebounds against Lafayette and his four steals against former nationally ranked Northwestern, both rank second among individual performances by a MAAC player this season.
In the classroom, Taylor is a Criminal Justice major who holds a GPA above a 3.6, which earned him a spot on the 2016-17 MAAC Academic Honor Roll this past summer. He also serves as a representative on the Saint Peter's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).
