Gulf Coast guard Taylor Emery has been named the Spalding NJCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Player of the Year.

 

The 5-foot-10 sophomore led the Lady Commodores to a 34-2 record and Panhandle Conference, Region 8, and national championships in the 2016-17 season after transferring in from Tulane.

 

Emery finished the season averaging 19 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.6 steals per game while shooting 48.4 percent from the field, 43.2 percent from the 3-point line, and 83.3 percent from the free throw line.

 

She was named the Most Outstanding Player at both the Region 8 tournament in Ocala and the national tournament in Lubbock, Tex. She averaged 26 points in three Region 8 tournament games on 54.7 percent shooting from the field and 64.2 percent from the 3-point line.

 

In Lubbock, Emery opened with a 32-point outing in a first round win over Harford and finished the tournament averaging 20.3 points on 49.2 percent shooting from the field and 36.8 percent from three.

 

Emery will move on to a Division I school for her final two years of eligibility and has narrowed her choices to three: Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, and Ole Miss.
