Hill joined the team as an 8th grader. Hill won the state scoring title her sophomore and senior years and led South to a 139-14 record in her five-year career. After two consecutive Minnesota State High School League Class AAAA state championship losses to St. Paul Central, Minneapolis South got what they longed for by beating Centennial High School 68-61 in the 2009 class AAAA state final. Tayler Hill led all scorers, tying the all-time tournament record for most points in a single game with 47. Hill broke several Minnesota high school records in her senior season, including most career points with 3,894, most points in a single season with 1,053, and most free throw makes and attempts in a single season (270/350).
Hill was a two-time Gatorade Minnesota Girls Basketball Player of the Year.
As a freshman, Hill started all 36 games for the Buckeyes. During her freshman campaign, Hill averaged 8.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 steals. Hill increased her scoring each year that she was at Ohio State, and during her senior season she averaged 22.3 points per game.
During her time at Ohio State, Tayler honored to be on the Big Ten All-Defensive Team, three consecutive seasons. She also was a member of the Big Ten First Team during her junior and senior seasons.
In the 2013 WNBA Draft, Hill was drafted fourth overall by the Washington Mystics. After starting the season in the starting lineup, Hill has moved to a reserve role and has provided a spark along with fellow rookies, Emma Meesseman, Tierra Ruffin-Pratt, and Nadirah McKenith.
With the announcement of Tayler having her child in May, she also has made it known that she expects to play sometime during the upcoming 2014 WNBA season.
