Out Loud .::. "It was a tough game"

BLOOMINGTON - The Sentinel caught up with St. Joseph-Ogden junior Coy Taylor after the Spartans' 66-40 win over a very good Rock Falls basketball squad at the State Farm Holiday Classic on Thursday. Taylor was up and down the floor for 25 minutes, finishing the game with 14 points, three rebounds, and three assists.

Almost 24 hours later, he was back on the hardwood, energized enough to drop a career-high 31 points on Pecatonica. Taylor put on a three-point shooting clinic, hitting six of his seven attempts outside the arch. Seeing a minute less playing time, he also dished out six assists and hauled in six boards in SJO's 91-61 semifinal win.

Taylor and the Spartans advanced to the championship game on Saturday against El Paso-Gridley.

Here's what he told The Sentinel after his game against the Rockets of Rock Falls:
