INDIANAPOLIS – Sophomore Kendall Bradbury and junior Cassidy Wyse of the TU women's basketball team earned All-Crossroads League honors, as the Crossroads League announced its 2016-2017 women's basketball all-league teams on Wednesday.
Bradbury was voted First-Team All-Crossroads League, after being named Second-Team All-Crossroads League, Crossroads League All-Newcomer Team and Crossroads League Newcomer of the Year a season ago.
Bradbury started all 31 games on the year for TU, producing 21.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per outing, while shooting 45.1 percent from the field and adding 1.2 steals per game on the defensive end of the floor. The sophomore topped the Crossroads League in scoring during the regular season, ranked third in rebounding and was sixth in field goal percentage.
The Highlands Ranch, Colorado native tallied at least 25 points in 11 games, while pouring in 30 points four times. In addition to her proficient scoring, Bradbury worked hard on the boards to rack up 14 double-doubles on the year, including a career-high 16 rebounds in two different contests.
Bradbury also left her mark in the TU career record book, reaching 1,000 points in her 50th game wearing the purple and gold to become the fastest to the 1,000-point plateau in program history.
Wyse was named Honorable Mention All-Crossroads League, giving the junior three All-Crossroads League honors in as many years at Taylor. Wyse was Third-Team All-Crossroads League last year after garnering Honorable Mention All-Crossroads League and Crossroads League Newcomer of the Year accolades after the 2014-2015 season.
The Archbold, Ohio native played in 26-of-31 games this season, starting 24 times for the Trojans and notching 12.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and a team-high 1.3 steals per night. Wyse joined Bradbury among the league's top-10 in rebounding during the regular season and set a new career-high with 17 rebounds against No. 6 Saint Xavier on November 26.
Wyse also etched her name into the Taylor record books, becoming the 24th player in team history to score 1,000 career points two and a half weeks after Bradbury eclipsed the mark. Additionally, the junior set a new Trojan single-season record for free throw accuracy, knocking down 92.9 percent (65-of-70) of her free throws, topping the previous mark of 91.7 percent set by Tess Rudolph during the 2010-2011 season.
