2011-12 Big Ten Position by Position: Guards

jordan-taylor-harry-how-getty3[1]

In a new 2011-12 preview feature we’ll be looking across the conference, position-by-position, at the Big Ten’s top players. We’ll breakdown the conference’s top 10 guards, wings, combo forwards and centers over the coming week. We’ll start with the guards.

1. Jordan Taylor – Wisconsin

MPG PPG RPG APG ORtg Usage eFG% 3PFG% A Rate TO Rate FT Rate
36.5 18.1 4.1 4.7 126.9 27.4 51.7 42.9 30.4 8.5 41.3

Upside: Taylor was the most efficient player in the conference last season. He was deadly from three point range, didn’t turn the ball over and got to the free throw line often. Most publications have Taylor rated as a preseason All-American and he should fight Jared Sullinger for Big Ten Player of the Year honors.
Downside: While Taylor had the luxury of playing alongside one of the conference’s elite inside-out big men, Jon Leuer, last season, he’ll be forced to play with a front court defined by question marks and inexperience. How does Taylor handle the burden of carrying even more of the offense.

The Journal Gazette notes that its unclear where Hatch will be living and published handful of quotes from the Hatch family, via e-mailed statement:

“We are extremely thankful and relieved that Austin is home with us,” Hatch’s family said Sunday in an emailed statement.

“While Austin has made great improvements, he still has obstacles to overcome as he continues to heal, grieve and acclimate to life after tragedy,” the statement said.

This is obviously a major step for Austin, but it’s also the just the first of many in a long process. Hatch was hospitalized for the last three and a half months following the crash and he still has a long recovery process ahead.
