Carl Taylor Tabbed as Moe's Athlete of the Week

DAHLONEGA, GA - Carl Taylor has been named the Moe’s Southwest Grill North Georgia Athlete of the Week after averaging 11 points in a pair of games last week the sports information office announced Monday afternoon.

The junior came out against the 13th-ranked team in the country and scored nine points, all coming in clutch three-pointers as North Georgia upset previously unbeaten Montevallo at BankTrust Arena.

The Conyers, Ga., native then scored 13 points on a 5-6 shooting performance from the floor, knocking down three more buckets from behind the arc as the Saints took down Lander to claim their third straight Peach Belt Conference victory and move up to second place in the PBC West Division.

For the week, Taylor drained six of eight three-pointers, and currently sits in the top 10 in the league in three-point field goals made, hitting 29 on the season for a 2.23 average per game.

Taylor will lead North Georgia in two more PBC games this week, hosting USC Aiken and Georgia Southwestern as the Saints look to stay in the thick of the Peach Belt Conference title race.
