Shugart Earns Conference Player of the Week Honors

ANDERSON, S.C. -- Anderson sophomore Taylor Shugart has been named the Conference Carolinas men's basketball Player of the Week during week number four of the 2009-10 season, as announced by the conference office Tuesday afternoon. The 6-foot-7 center came up big for the Trojans last Saturday, scoring a season-high 22 points and grabbing a game-high 12 rebounds en route to posting his second double-double of the young season, as Anderson defeated UNC Pembroke, 107-90. Shugart also blocked three shots and recorded two steals in the Trojans’ lone contest of the week. He connected on his first seven shots from the field to help Anderson build three 16-point leads midway through the first half and finished by hitting 10-of-12 (.833) from the field. His board work inside, including seven second-half rebounds, helped thwart the Braves’ comeback efforts. “I'm very proud of Taylor,” Anderson head coach Jason Taylor said. “He’s worked hard and played well. It’s a nice honor that’s well-deserved and reflects on the entire program.” The Trojans now take their sparkling 5-1 record on the road for five games, beginning with a visit to Peach Belt foe-North Georgia tonight in Dahlonega. Tip-off versus the Saints is slated for 7 p.m. at Memorial Hall. Listen to the game live on ESPN Radio 1280 AM WANS or wrixfm103.com Live Stats Live Video
