Taylor was unstoppable in the opening game, draining several midrange shots against the 2-3 zone and slashing to the basket for easy buckets. Taylor finished with 17 points and a bunch of boards while leading his team to an easy opening round pool play victory.
Chandler scored 6 points in a game that finished with a running clock. The 6-foot-10 Louisville commit ran floor well, blocked a few shots and challenged a few more.
Marquis Teague, Louisville's top 2011 target, didn't play Friday night but he was on hand to watch Chandler and Taylor's first game. Teague will play two games Saturday afternoon.
