This week’s Female Athlete of the Week honors go to freshman forward Taylor Arthur. Arthur has been a major presence at center for Alice Lloyd and has risen above the expectations of head coach John Mills for her first season as an Eagle.
Alice Lloyd’s latest contest with Brescia ended in a victory with Arthur playing an instrumental role in the win. Her tough play on the inside aided her teammates in shutting down Lady Bearcats center Olivia Moore, who is usually one of Brescia’s top scorers. Arthur generated a big-time double-double in this important conference bout with 13 points and 12 boards.
Going into the final stretch of the 2013-14 season, Arthur is averaging 10.0 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks.
Catch Arthur in action again this Saturday, February 1st, as the Alice Lloyd women’s hoops team battles IU Southeast. The game is set for 2 PM in Pippa Passes.
