Sophomore women’s basketball player Taylor Soule is BC Interruption’s 2019-20 Player of the Year, beating out teammate Emma Guy and field hockey standout Margo Carlin for the honor. With the total opposite of a sophomore slump, Soule was a major factor in this year’s amazing women’s basketball season.
As ACC’s Most Improved Player, Soule was 11th in the conference in both points per game (14.5) and rebounds per game (7.7). She led the Eagles in minutes per game (27.5), and in points and rebounds per game. She scored 465 total points this season and grabbed 245 rebounds, for career totals of 694 points and 358 rebounds. Soule also led her team in double-doubles, with an impressive 10, and in free throws made (139).
In addition to her numerous team leading stats, Soule was also second on the team with a .540 field goal percentage. She was also the runner up in blocks (38) and steals (14).
Soule scored 20+ points in 8 games this season and scored in the double digits in 23 games. She scored a season high 29 points in BC’s 93-75 victory over UNC. Soule’s baskets and rebounds were the difference makers in a number of BC’s 20 wins this season. All of this, and she’s just a sophomore.
We’re looking forward to watching 2 more seasons of Soule leading BC women’s basketball to greater and greater heights!
