Taylor Francis To Play Basketball At Northwestern

Taylor Francis of Hull has signed a letter of intent to continue his basketball career at Northwestern College next year.

Francis is a 6’2” shooting guard who lettered two years for Boyden-Hull High School. Francis averaged 13 points, three rebounds and 3.5 assists per game and helped lead the Comets to the class 1A state championship with a 26-2 overall record. Francis shot 37% from beyond the arc, making a team-best 54 three-pointers, and was an all-substate and all-conference selection. He also shot better than 80% from the free throw line.

Francis plans to major in history and is the son of Bill and Sondra.

“Taylor is a quality young man,” commented head coach Kris Korver. “He is a winner and has a real understanding of how to play the game. Taylor works hard, competes hard and we are excited that he will be joining us at Northwestern College.”
