Women's basketball's Frost secures MAC career rebound record


Junior forward Reyna Frost looks for a pass during the game against Oregon on March 24 at Spokane Arena.

The Central Michigan women's basketball team opened the Mid-American Conference season with a 94-71 victory over the Akron Zips before 2,188 at McGuirk Arena on Saturday. 

Senior forward Reyna Frost, however, had the day everyone remembered. 

Frost was the driving force and leader of the offensive charge and eclipsed a milestone in the process. 

Frost collected 10 rebounds for another double-double, the 11th of the season, and now Frost sits atop the MAC career rebounds total with 1,231. The previous record was held by Caroline Mast of Ohio (1983-1986).

"It's really special," Frost said. "Coming from Reese (Michigan) I never thought I would get a conference rebounding record. But that's something (head coach Sue Guevara) put in my mind when I came here and something I really worked hard for." 

Frost scored a career-high 31 points and was a strong force down low and scored a lot from the paint. She also shot 66 percent from three-point range. 

"Talking about a career-high points, I owe that all to my teammates because they gave me great passes," Frost said.

Frost and the Chippewas (10-3, 1-0 MAC) will retake the floor at 7 p.m. on Jan. 9 in Athens, Ohio for a matchup with the Bobcats. It will be CMU's first conference road game on the campaign.
