John Taylor
The opening week of play in the MBL West Division was full of great performances. Chicago Clovers won their league debut behind the duo of Walter Lemon Jr. (6'3''-G-92, college: Bradley) (33 points) and Omni Smith (6'3''-G-84, college: Kent St.) (32 points). In St. Paul the two Twin Cities-based teams faced off - Kaavarian Williams (Minnesota Broncos) put up a game-high 31 points in the Broncos loss to the Minnesota Rangers.

It was in Milwaukee that one outshined the others as Chicago Fury guard John Taylor (6'1''-G-89, college: Fresno Pacific) scorched the basket for 46 points! The 6'1″ native of Chicago also pulled down six rebounds, four assists and two steals. Chicago picked up the win on the road 110-89 over host Wisconsin Storm. For his efforts Taylor is the MBL West Player of the Week.

John Taylor started his college career at Mott (MI) Community College where he guided his team to a national championship and was named 2012 NJCAA Division II Player of the Year. Taylor then transferred to NCAA Division II Fresno Pacific, where in the 2012-13 season he led the country in scoring at 27.5 ppg.

After his junior year Taylor declared for the NBA Draft, but went undrafted. Most recently the 26-year old played in Mexico with IIndios de Juarez of Liga Nacional de Baloncesto Profesional (LNMP).

This past weekend we experienced a game for the ages and honestly we dont think we will ever see anything else like it.
