Derinisha Taylor, Commercial Appeal Player of the Week
Derinisha Taylor, Mitchell: The Tigers make their debut in the Dandy Dozen this season and as usual Taylor has been right in the middle of her team's success. The 5-6 senior averaged 17.7 points as Mitchell won two out of three games at the Lendel Thomas Classic in Harrison, Ark. She was named game MVP in both victories against Arkansas opponents, scoring 25 against Ashdown (63-49) and 18 against Fort Smith Southside (50-32). She then had 18 in Tuesday's 80-24 win over MAHS.
