Isaiah Taylor on Cover of Sports Illustrated

Longhorns sophomore point guard Isaiah Taylor appears on a regional cover in this week’s issue of Sports Illustrated, the publication announced Tuesday.

Texas is one of five schools selected for a regional cover in the magazine’s annual College Basketball preview issue, joining Arizona, Duke, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

Expectations are high for the sophomore point guard after a strong freshman campaign in which he averaged 12.7 points, 4 assists, and 3.3 rebounds. He'll spearhead a Texas program that returns everyone from last year' team that went 24-11 (11-7 in Big 12) and lost to Michigan in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

Subscribers and newsstands in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Idaho, New Mexico and Wyoming will receive this regional issue.

The Longhorns tip-off their season on Nov. 14 at home against North Dakota State as part of the 2K Classic benefiting Wounded Warrior Project. Tip is set for 7 p.m. at the Frank Erwin Center, and the game will be televised nationally by Longhorn Network.
