Bradbury Adds Prestigious Academic All-America Honor
AUSTIN, Texas – The awards keep rolling in for Kendall Bradbury, as the most decorated player in program history was recently named as one-of-10 student-athletes from the NAIA to receive CoSIDA Google Cloud Academic All-American honors.
The Academic All-American accolade follows the WBCA and NAIA All-American nods for Bradbury, who closed her career as the all-time leading scorer for Taylor and the Crossroads League, while ranking ninth all-time in the NAIA in career points with 2,850. Along the way, Bradbury picked up four NAIA All-American honors, four All-Crossroads League nods, a trio of CoSIDA Academic All-District awards, two NAIA Scholar-Athlete awards and one CoSIDA Academic All-American recognition.
The Crossroads League Player of the Year scored an NAIA-leading 798 points for Taylor during the 2018-2019 season, starting all 35 games and averaging 22.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per outing, while helping the Trojans to their most successful season in program history. With Bradbury at the lead, TU went 30-5 with a Crossroads League regular season and tournament championship and Taylor’s second-ever trip to the NAIA Elite Eight.
Along with the outstanding on-court accomplishments, Bradbury has posted a cumulative grade-point average of 3.52 with a major in exercise science. Those credentials were good for her CoSIDA Google Cloud NAIA Women’s Basketball Second-Team Academic All-American honor.
Bradbury is the second CoSIDA Academic All-American in the history of the Taylor women’s basketball program, joining 1998 Third-Team Academic All-American, Sarah Krause, on the list.
Bradbury joins Danielle Toren of women’s soccer and Haley Harrell of volleyball in giving Taylor a trio of CoSIDA Academic All-Americans during the 2018-2019 year and is the 80th CoSIDA Academic All-American in school history.
