The showcase will feature some of Taylor’s former Utah Basketball teammates, and current NBA stars Delon Wright and Kyle Kuzma among others yet to be announced. The event will be held at Highland High School at 7 p.m. next Tuesday. All proceeds from the game will be donated to Utah Foster Care.

In conjunction with the Charity Showcase, Taylor has partnered with another former Ute, Lawrence Borha, to hold a summer basketball skills camp for ages 8-18 from August 8th-10th, also to be held at Highland High. The camp will be coached by Taylor and Borha along with some of their college teammates. On July 7th, Taylor announced Kuzma would be one of those former teammates. Kids signed up for Taylor’s camp will get into the Charity Showcase on Tuesday for free.

Powder League

The Powder League has really made some noise over the summer with splashy performances. Just a few weeks back, former Runnin’ Ute Parker Van Dyke made headlines for setting a league record of 85 points in a single night.

Taylor has also turned heads for the Powder League upon his return from playing  dropping 41 points, seven assists, four rebounds, and three steals last Friday.
