The Aberdeen girls basketball team started strongly, but it now faces some major challenges. Aberdeen is 8-3 overall, but top scorer Tiffany Taylor (13 points a game) injured her ankle during warm-ups of the team's game at North Harford last week. The point guard will be re-evaluated Tuesday to see if there is a fracture, and Taylor's status is going to be determined then. This came a few days after starting guard Chelsea Stevens broke her collarbone diving for a loose ball in the team's victory over Bel Air. Stevens is expected to be out four to six weeks, and coach Mike Blizzard said he thinks she will be back for the end of the regular season.
