Bradbury, Wyse Lead RV Trojans to 15-Point Victory at Asbury


WILMORE, Ky. – Kendall Bradbury and Cassidy Wyse combined for 59 points and the Taylor women’s basketball team defeated Asbury, 96-81, on the road on Friday night.


TU scored five quick points to begin the game, but Asbury (2-4) responded with nine-straight points to take a 9-5 lead. The two squads essentially traded baskets the remainder of the period, as the Eagles held on to a 17-14 lead after 10 minutes of action.


In the second quarter, the Trojans grabbed their second lead of the game on a pair of Wyse free throws at the seven-minute mark. Over the next 4:35 of the period, the lead changed hands six times, with Taylor closing the half on a 10-2 run to secure a six-point lead, 43-37, at the intermission. TU shot a sizzling 10-of-13 (76.9 percent) from the floor during the second quarter.


The second half belonged to Taylor, as the Trojans built up a 14-point advantage by the end of the third quarter and led by as many as 20 in the final stanza.


Asbury cut the lead to nine with 3:41 to go in the contest, but TU ripped off 11 unanswered points to take a commanding 96-76 lead with 1:02 remaining, before AU added five points in the final minute for the end score.


Bradbury poured in 24 of her game-high and season-high 34 points in the second half, converting 12-of-19 shots from the field (63.2 percent) and nine-of-10 from the free throw line, while also pulling down 16 rebounds and dishing out five assists. Wyse made eight-of-15 field goals (53.3 percent) for a season-high 25 points, while also handing out five assists and grabbing four rebounds.


Josie Cobb and Aubrey Wright each netted nine points apiece, with Cobb adding seven rebounds and four helpers. Abby Buchs and Becca Buchs posted six points each, and Abby recorded five rebounds as well.


The Trojans recorded its most points in a game since scoring 98 against IU East on December 31, 2015, while shooting a season-high 51.7 percent (31-60) from the floor in the win.


RV Taylor (3-4) will return to the hardwood on Saturday at 12:00 pm, as the Trojans face off with Shawnee State (5-1), who is ranked No. 5 in NAIA Division I, in the second day of the Zweifel Pritchett Classic at Asbury University.
