UPLAND, Ind. – The Taylor women's basketball team used a career-high 23 points from Josie Cobb and 33 points and 14 rebounds from 2016 Taylor Christmas Classic Most Valuable Player Kendall Bradbury to top Judson, 87-75, on the final day of 2016.


Bradbury led the Trojans from the opening tip, as the sophomore poured in 15 of the team's 21 first-quarter points, giving TU a 21-20 lead after 10 minutes of action. The Trojans were an efficient eight-of-14 from the floor, while only turning the ball over one time in the period.


 The second quarter was a different story, as Taylor recorded more turnovers (seven) than made field goals (five), allowing Judson to take a 36-34 advantage into halftime.


The Eagles (8-8) extended their lead steadily over the first six minutes after the intermission, taking a 59-47 edge over TU with 3:25 remaining in the quarter. Cobb answered with a pair of three-pointers, courtesy of assists from Sydney Huffman, to cut the deficit in half in a matter of 80 seconds. Bradbury added the last six points of the quarter for the Trojans to make it a 63-59 JU lead after thirty minutes of play.


Taylor overwhelmed the Eagles in the final period, using a seven-to-zero run by Cobb and Bradbury to take a 69-65 lead with 6:57 left in regulation. The Trojans would not look back, as the hosts outscored Judson, 18-10 the rest of the way to secure the 87-75 victory.


Bradbury, who was voted to the all-tournament team, converted on 12 of her 22 shots from the floor and seven-of-nine from the charity stripe for her season-high 33 points to lead the Trojans. Cobb knocked down three triples and went a perfect 10-for-10 from the foul line, while topping the 20-point mark for the first time in her TU career. Cassidy Wyse added 17 points and seven boards off the bench for the Trojans.


Taylor (8-8, 3-1 CL) will return to the hardwood on Wednesday at 7:00 pm, when it hosts No. 25 Huntington (8-7, 2-2 CL) in a Crossroads League matchup inside Odle Arena.
