BRENTWOOD — Myles Taylor, a forward on the UT Martin men’s basketball team, has been named the adidas Ohio Valley Conference Freshman of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
Taylor accumulated 22 points, 11 rebounds, three blocked shots and a steal while shooting an even 50 percent from the floor (8-for-16) in a pair of games this week.
At Arkansas State on Thursday, Taylor scored eight points and led the team with eight rebounds in 24 minutes. Two days later against Rochester, he poured in a career-high 14 points and swatted away a career-best three shots in just 19 minutes to help the Skyhawks to their first win of the season.
Taylor’s award marks the 24th time a Skyhawk has won the league’s Freshman of the Week award.
UT Martin hosts Lamar tonight at 7.
