MANHATTAN, Kan (KAKE) -

In the stands and on the court, Taylor Robertson felt the love from her hometown of McPherson, despite a 30 point loss in her first game back in the Sunflower State as a collegiate athlete. 

“It was really cool,” said Oklahoma freshman guard Taylor Robertson. “It was cool to just walk out there and see all of the red and it was really special and I can’t wait to do it again.”

Robertson has given McPherson a lot to smile about this year. She leads the Sooners with 17.9 PPG and her 4.3 made threes per game are the best in the nation. 

“She has the uncanny ability to just quiet her mind and do her job when she catches the ball. She is a fearless shooter and she’s way more clever and creative than she gets credit for,” said Oklahoma women’s basketball coach Sherri Coale. 

Before Robertson’s four Big 12 Freshman of the Week honors, her gifted shooting touch helped McPherson win a state championship and she was the Kansas Gatorade Player of the Year in 2017. 

Robertson’s success in high school didn’t guarantee she would find the same thing in Norman, but her work ethic and passion for the sport has helped during her freshman year. 

“The coaches just kind of put me in a good spot. I’m working everyday in practice and my teammates just do all of the little things that help me do really good on the court,” said Robertson. 

“She loves to play the game. That’s what I love about her,” said Coale. “She loves to play the game and she loves to compete and she’s not near as good as she’s going to get. She’s just halfway through her freshman year.”
