Surrey Scorchers are delighted to welcome US import Quincy Taylor to Surrey Sports Park for the 2016-17 British Basketball League season.
The point guard made his BBL debut in January after signing for the Cheshire Phoenix to kick off his overseas playing career. He notched an impressive 14.8ppg average in his half a season spell at the club, making him a key target for Scorchers’ head coach Creon Raftopoulos this season.
Taylor’s college career started at the University of Alabama Birmingham and continued at Longwood University where he averaged 17.2 points per game, shooting 48% from the three-point line.
Following the signing, Coach Raftopoulos stated, “I am really excited to bring Quincy to Scorchers this season.
“He is a proven scorer in the BBL and I think fans will love his passion and ability on court.”
Taylor becomes Scorchers’sixth pre-season signing and leaves one spot open for a third American to join the roster.
Scorchers kick off their 2016-17 BBL Championship season with a huge home tie against the London Lions on Saturday 24 September. Tickets for this game and season passes for the whole season are still available online now.
