Taylor's Sudden Struggles

July 13, 2010 Updated Jul 13, 2010 at 2:27 PM CDT

Twas 4 nights before Christmas, and what visions are dancing thru the head of B-U coach Jim Les?
One of them must be Taylor Brown...and how he went from a sugar plum to a lump of coal in one week.

Less than a week ago we were talking about Taylor Brown's wonderful life, leading the Braves in scoring at 16 and a half points per game. Yes, the spirit of christmas present was all glitter and sparkles for the sophomore forward.
"He really came on in Brazil and it has carried over, " said Bradley basketball coach Jim Les.
This epiphany coming after a freshman year when Brown looked like a reindeer in the headlites. the spirt of Christmas past not a fan.
"We laugh about where I was at this time a year ago," Brown said.
The game of basketball has turned Scrooge on Taylor Brown yet again. Only 6 points in last weeks loss to Loyola. Only four points against Iowa State..a game in which he was so bad, Jim Les benched him. The ghost of Christmas' yet to come says Brown needs to get back to what made him succesful the first eight games of the season.
