TAYLOR TO TRANSFER FROM MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY
WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J.- Monmouth University head men's basketball coach Dave Calloway announced on Thursday that center Travis Taylor (Union, N.J./Union) has requested a release in order to transfer to another university.
"Travis' mother contacted me by phone and declared that they
have decided that her son needed to move on to further enhance his chances of
playing in the NBA," said Calloway.
Taylor appeared in 55 career games for the Hawks, including starting 34. This past season he played and started in 24 contests, missing seven contests while serving a suspension for violation of team rules.
"We are truly disappointed in Travis' decision to leave Monmouth," said Calloway. "His teammates stood by him this past season and were counting on him this upcoming year. We wish Travis the best and truly hope he finds what he is looking for."
