Taylor Falls on the Road Against Goshen

 

GOSHEN, Ind. – Taylor fell, 72-65, on the road against Goshen in Crossroads League action on Thursday night. 

 

The Trojans were overpowered on the boards, with Goshen grabbing 43 compared to 32 for TU, despite a clear height advantage for Taylor. 

 

A three-pointer by Kaden Fuhrmann gave Taylor a 3-2 lead, which they extended to 5-2 when Grant Niehaus made a bucket before seeing the Maple Leafs score the 12 points to take the lead and never relinquish it. 

 

TU continually cut the lead to two but could get no closer during the first half, which saw Goshen (3-16, 1-10 CL) stretch the lead to six at the break. 

 

The Trojans scored seven of the first nine points after halftime, capped by a Jason Hubbard basket on a fast break to pull within one of Goshen. 

 

Taylor kept it close throughout, never trailing by more than seven the rest of the half, but the Maple Leafs responded every time TU looked to have gained momentum. 

 

A Fuhrmann triple with 90 seconds remaining cut the lead to three, but a three by Goshen off of an offensive rebound sealed the game for the home squad. 

 

Jackson Lewis continued his strong play by leading TU with 14 points, along with two steals and two assists. Anton Webb had a great game off the bench, tallying ten points, seven rebounds, and four blocks down low. 

 

Taylor (12-10, 6-6 CL) continues Crossroads League action on Saturday, January 28, against Saint Francis (12-10, 5-7 CL), with a scheduled tip-off time of 3:00 pm.
