After playing in Spain, China and Israel earlier this season, former UCF star Jermaine Taylor appears happy to be back in the United States. The guard recently signed with the Maine Red Claws in the NBA D-League and is off to a sensational start with his new team.
Taylor has appeared in three contests for Maine and is averaging 23.7 points on 45.8 percent shooting from the floor.
On Wednesday evening in a road contest against the Canton Charge, Taylor was unstoppable. He scored 34 points on 14-of-29 shooting. He also recorded five steals in the game.
Taylor is not the only individual with UCF connections on the Red Claws. Former assistant director of basketball operations J.P. Clark is an assistant coach with Maine.
