When Tyshawn Taylor makes the drive into Lawrence, he can’t help but have countless memories fr om his days as a player at Kansas come back.

Despite the various changes in Lawrence since Taylor departed in 2012 Josh Jackson Jersey, there are certain landmarks that have a special meaning to the 29 year old. From the Jayhawk Towers the old basketball dorms to Allen Fieldhouse, Taylor has countless memories that are tied to Lawrence.

On Tuesday, Taylor made another return to Allen Fieldhouse. This time for a Bill Self Basketball Camp scrimmage.

“I m telling you, you start to remember everything,” Taylor said of being back at Allen Fieldhouse. “You start to remember plays, the crowd, faces that you remember seeing in certain places https://www.kansasjayhawksshop.com/udoka-azubuike-jersey-c-14.html, all those things. It s fun shooting around in there.

Taylor had another memory come back https://www.kansasjayhawksshop.com/customize-jersey-c-16.html, with some help from his former coach.

While introducing the participants of the scrimmage, Bill Self wanted to tell a story about Taylor. Self walked the left elbow on the south side of the James Naismith court. Self wanted to take the campers back to the final game at Allen Fieldhouse between KU and Missouri.

Self, trying to explain the magnitude of the moment while putting into perspective just how special Taylor was, explained that Taylor drove three quarters length of the court and made a crucial layup all while only taking two dribbles.


Later in the scrimmage, Taylor and former teammate Elijah Johnson almost re created another memory from the same game.

I actually was trying on that last play,” Taylor said of re creating memories inside the historic venue. “I wanted Elijah to throw the backdoor on the play wh ere we got the dunk against Missouri but he wasn t looking for it.”

Taylor won the game for his team on the next offensive possession with a step back two https://www.kansasjayhawksshop.com/mitch-lightfoot-jersey-c-15.html, which he made over Chris Teahan. Chris Teahan is the brother of one of Taylor’s old teammates, Conner Teahan. “Light work,” Taylor joked about hitting the shot over the younger Teahan.

The former Jayhawk was pleased to have the opportunity to play on the James Naismith Court again.

Obviously for the old guys like myself who don t get to run out of the tunnel and do those things anymore, that s always fun to be able to shoot around in there and play in there, Taylor said. So that was fun.

For the 6 foot 3 point guard, it’s fun to watch the Jayhawks grow from this point in the summer to Late Night in the Phog and into Big 12 play.

It s always fun for me to come in the summertime, get this little scrimmage in and then watch [the current team] get so much better,” Taylor said. “So now when I see [someone like] Jalen [Wilson], in December or January he s going to be a totally different player than he is now.

Taylor participated in plenty of summer scrimmages and pickup sessions in his time at KU. Now that he’s on the outside looking in, he has some advice for the current crop of Jayhawks.

I think they should just definitely enjoy the summer,” Taylor explained. “That s the first thing I would tell them is to enjoy the summer. But start to train yourself and your mind that this is going to get serious — and serious soon. It s not going to be 100 kids screaming at you, it s going to be 16,000 people and it s going to be intense and it s going to be fun so enjoy it. But just know that it s serious and it means stuff to people.”

It s frickin Kansas basketball,” Taylor said. “If you can t get up for that you re probably playing the wrong sport.
