Taylor had a fairly consistent day, scoring even-par 72 and 2-under 70 on Sunday. He is 2-under 142 overall and is tied with sixth other players in the fifth-place spot, but is just two shots behind the leaders - Jose Toledo of New Orleans and Kyle Nicolson of Cal State Northridge - who are 4-under 140.

The Huskies have two other players in the Top-20 with sophomore Darren Wallace tied for 14th (1-over 145) and senior Zach Bixler tied for 17th (2-over 146). Bixler's second-round score of 2-under 70 matched Taylor for the low UW round of the day.
