ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - During his time in Orlando, senior guard Jermaine Taylor (Tavares, Fla.) has provided UCF fans with dozens of memorable highlights. With the All-America candidate's collegiate career winding down, a highlight reel containing some of Taylor's best dunks has been added to UCFAthletics.com.

Taylor currently ranks fifth nationally in scoring at 25.0 points per game. He has paced the Knights in points in 24 of the team's 25 contests in 2008-09. During the campaign, Taylor has recorded seven 30-point performances, including a 35-point showing in the squad's 74-72 comeback win over Tulsa last Saturday.

He is averaging 26.6 points in Conference USA play. Taylor has been named the league player of the week on four occasions.

During the Tulsa contest, he became UCF's Division I career scoring leader. During his career, he has scored 1,791 points. The program joined the D-I ranks in 1984. Taylor is also eighth on the C-USA career scoring register.

The highlight reel, which is available for free via Knights All-Access, was produced by the UCF video services staff. Taylor's dunks are accompanied by the track "Hear Me Now," by Million Year Echo. Visit MySpace.com/millionyearecho for more information about the band.
