Women’s basketball seniors leave positive impact on Hudson, Frost


Junior guard Presley Hudson shoots the ball while junior forward Reyna Frost blocks during the basketball game against Eastern Michigan on March 7 at Quicken Loans Arena. 

For the last three seasons, seniors Tinara Moore, Aleah Swary, Cassie Breen and Amani Corley have been a phone call, text message or drive away from juniors Presley Hudson and Reyna Frost. 

After the 2017-18 season, the seniors will be gone, leaving Hudson and Frost to lead the Chippewas. 

“They all bring different personalities to the team,” Hudson said. “We love all of them and are going to miss them a lot.” 

Of the seniors, Moore and Breen average in double figures. Moore posts 19.2 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. Breen, on the other hand, connects on 38.9 percent of 3-pointers en route to average 12.3 points per contest. 

While Frost does not have a favorite memory of the seniors, she has always enjoyed their company. 

“I like when we are all in the locker room,” Frost said. “There’s not a specific memory, but it’s just joking around and talking about class and telling a story of stuff that happened during their day.” 

Emotions were high for Moore in her last home game, which caused her to get off to a shaky start. In spite of it being her last time at the Mid-American Conference Tournament, Moore is not planning to get emotional at Quicken Loans Arena. 

“My last home game, I was a little emotional,” Moore said. “This is my last time here, but I know I’ll be back in this arena someday. Basketball will end sometime, but hopefully it won’t end tomorrow.”

The Chippewas face off against Miami (Ohio) in the MAC Tournament semifinals at 11 a.m. on March 9 in hopes of making it to the title game.
