MWC Wire Top 25 Countdown: #2 Deshon Taylor

The No. 2 player in the MWC Wire Top 25 Basketball Countdown is Fresno State guard Deshon Taylor.

Taylor, a 6-3 senior guard, returns to Fresno State after declaring for the NBA Draft in the spring. The former UMKC Kangaroo transferred to Fresno after his freshman season and has been one of the most productive players in the Mountain West since.

Last season, Taylor averaged 17.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.5 steals per game, starting 30 times. With Fresno State’s offseason departures, Taylor’s focus will shift towards being the team’s go-to point guard. Taylor was named to the conference’s first team at the league’s media day and now has his eyes set on finishing his stellar college career with an exclamation point.
