Kansas' Turnover Taylor
The guy can't do much more to damage his stock in his final season suited up for Kansas. Once seen as a late first-rounder, scouts waited for Tyshawn Taylor to blossom playing behind Josh Selby and playing alongside Marcus and Markieff Morris and several prominent shooters, but it never happened. So we labeled the 2011-12 season, his senior campaign, as his eventual breakout year; after all, he has very good size at 6'3", great floor vision and passing abilities.
He began the season suspended for conduct detrimental to the team; not exactly what coach Bill Self was hoping for from the lone starting senior. And now that he has been in the lineup, he cannot take care of the ball for the life of him. He is making plays (4.9 assists per game), sure, but he is nearly forcing as many (4.4 turnovers per game) and posting the sixth worst turnover rate in the country. It seems as if his court vision and decision-making trigger has left him and so has his chances at being drafted.
