Asia Taylor Emerges In Win Over Marquette

Monique Reid and Becky Burke were at their best as the Lady Cards surprised a good Marquette team. Their continued improvement, along with the emergence of Asia Taylor has coach Jeff Walz looking forward to the future again, despite his team’s 12-14 won-lost record.

Reid had 26 points and 16 rebounds, Burke finished with 19 and two boards, both playing 40 minutes for the injury-riddled Lady Cards. Impressive performances, yeoman like efforts as usual. Shelby Harper coming through with six points during her 40. Even Gwen Rucker had six points.

Asia Taylor, a freshman, displayed a new level of confidence, scoring 14 points and collecting eight rebounds while making life difficult for Marquette on the other end. “That’s the Asia Taylor we’ve been expecting,” said Walz. “She’s going to just keep on getting better and better.”
