Taylor Cannon, a freshman from Penn State Hazleton, is this Week’s Athlete of the Week for women’s basketball. Hazleton had a tough week going 1-3 (1-2 in the PSUAC). But Hazleton kept close in each game. Cannon contributed many points in each of this week’s games. In the non-conference loss to Valley Forge Christian College, she had 18 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 6-6 from the free throw line. Cannon led her team with 28 points, over half of Hazleton’s total points, in the win over Penn State Schuylkill. She also had 11 rebounds, 1 assist and 8 steals. It was an exciting game with Hazleton sliding by with a 1 point win, 46-45. Over the next two games, although Hazleton lost both, Cannon had a total of 29 points, 17 rebounds, 4 steals and 1 assist. Her coach said "Taylor has consistently crashed the boards, run the floor at both ends, and attacked the basket. Her desire to make a difference is her greatest quality." Cannon had a great week.
