Taylor leads the Lions with 12.7 points and 8.4 rebounds per game, including 11.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game in WCC play. She led the Lions in scoring 10 times this year and has nine double-doubles, which ranks third in the league. She became the 15th member of LMU’s 1,000-point club on Feb. 27 and, along with her more than 500 career rebounds, is the seventh player to surpass both those marks.

Both teams are set to play in the 2016 WCC Championships in Las Vegas this week.
