Taylor King extended his long left arm, and snatched a rebound off the glass. He flicked a hard outlet pass to his point guard, and sprinted to fill the lane. He spotted up in a most familiar place, the three-point line. He put his hand up to let his teammates know he was open. King received the pass, sized up the shot, and let go of one of his smooth left-handed jump shots in the blink of an eye. The basketball ripped through the net with the sound that Nike made famous, 'Swoosh'.
This practice wasn't with Duke University, of course, nor was it with Villanova. King's long journey from high school royalty at Mater Dei, to tobacco road, and into the heart of the city of brotherly love, has brought him to a place many wouldn't expect. King will bring his feisty game and patented deep three-point shots to Concordia University of Irvine for the 2010-2011 season.
