FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State women’s basketball added Taylor Ely to the 2014-15 roster. Head Coach Ryun Williams made the announcement Wednesday.
A 5-11 guard from Norman, Okla., Ely was Norman High School’s leading scorer for three consecutive years. This past season she averaged 20.3 points per game, while shooting 33 percent from three-point range and 81 percent from the line. She also pulled down 4.6 rebounds per contest. In her three-career with the Tigers, she scored 1,231 points.
“Taylor is a strong guard that can really shoot it,” commented Williams. “She has an incredible talent for putting the ball in the hoop, and her range is exceptional. She also is a rock star in the classroom as the valedictorian of her class. She is a great fit for CSU and CSU women’s basketball.”
As captain her senior season she was awarded the Mid-State Conference Offensive Player of the Year. She also earned all-state honors from the Oklahoma Coaches Association and the Oklahoma Girls Basketball Coaches Association and was awarded academic all-state. She was also a Vype magazine Miss Basketball Oklahoma semi-finalist.
Ely made an immediate impact with the Tigers, winning the Mid-State Conference Newcomer of the Year award during her sophomore season. The Norman, Okla., native then received first-team all-conference accolades in 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14.
In addition to being a four-year letterwinner in basketball, Ely also earned varsity letters in cross country and track for two seasons. She will graduate high school as a valedictorian later this month.
Ely is the sixth addition to the Rams’ squad this year and will redshirt the 2014-15 season. Colorado State has one scholarship remaining for next year.
