"Up Close" with Ray Taylor


"Up Close" with Ray Taylor

Sophomore point guard Ray Taylor guard has yet to see the court this season, but it shouldn't be long before he does.

Last season Taylor played in every game for Florida Atlantic en route to an 11th overall national ranking in assists, and being named Third Team All Sun Belt.

He also led the Owls in assists (5.9 pg) and is already ranked in the program's top 10 despite having three more seasons to play.

Taylor was second only to Greg Gantt (15.6 ppg) in scoring with a 14.2 ppg average.

Coach Mike Jarvis has set some high expectations for his super quick point, which Taylor is in agreement with.

"Become more like Steve Nash", said Jarvis. "Try to lead the country in assists and be a great, great on and off the ball defender."

Taylor is up for both challenges and says he is working on forcing shots and plays less this year as well.

"He tells me, but you see it on film, and film doesn't lie", Taylor said. "And he isn't the first coach to tell me that."
