NCAA Bracket 2012, Kansas Vs. North Carolina Update: Tyshawn Taylor Outstanding For Jayhawks

Kansas vs. North Carolina has been one of the most exciting games of the Elite Eight, and the Kansas Jayhawks owe much of their high-scoring to an excellent performance from senior guard Tyshawn Taylor. Taylor's got a game-high 19 points on 9-16 shooting as the Jayhawks carry a small lead into the last 10 minutes of their March Madness capper with Roy Williams and the Tar Heels. He's also got four assists and four steals, disrupting the Tar Heels' attempts to move the ball without injured playmaker Kendall Marshall. With his strong performance the Jayhawks carry a 68-64 lead into the last seven minutes of the Midwest regional final.

With Thomas Robinson a little off now that John Henson is back in the game, Taylor's become a primary option for the Jayhawks, and it's paying off. It's clear he'd rather this wasn't the last college basketball game he ever plays, and so far it looks like he'll be able to make that happen.
