BIOGRAPHY: Bryce will try to follow his father's footsteps into professional basketball - Brian Taylor played 10 professional seasons with New Jersey of the ABA and Kansas City, Denver and San Diego of the NBA before retiring in 1982. The younger Taylor spent four seasons in Eugene, averaging 12.3 points and 3.5 rebounds in 117 games with 107 starts. As a junior in 2006-07, Taylor set career highs with 14.1 points and 4.6 rebounds in 37 games, and was perfect in the Pac-10 championship game against USC, going 11-for-11 from the field with seven 3-pointers for a career-high 32 points in the win. Oregon reached the Midwest regional finals before losing to eventual national champion Florida. In 2007-08, Taylor couldn't capitalize on that success as his numbers trailed off to 12.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per contest. Still, he was Oregon's top 3-point threat over his final two seasons, hitting 40.1 percent (104-of-259) of his attempts from beyond the arc. Taylor had perhaps his finest game this season in November, scoring 11 of his 18 points after the break to lead Oregon to an 80-77 overtime win against then-No. 25 Kansas State - the first road win in the Ducks' 105-year history over a ranked nonconference opponent. Taylor poured in a season high 28 in a February win at California. He earned All-Pac-10 freshman honors by averaging 11.5 points in 2004-05, but Taylor's sophomore season was cut short by a hyperextended knee that limited him to 23 games with 13 starts.
