Transfer portal claims another CMU women’s basketball player

Freshman forward Rebekah Gordon goes for the rebound, Saturday Feb. 19, in McGuirk Arena.

With the NCAA tournament winding down and the off-season underway, Central Michigan head coach Heather Oesterle has more holes to fill after her team lost another player to the transfer portal.

On Monday, freshman forward Rebekah Gordon announced her decision to enter the transfer portal on Twitter.

Gordon appeared in 28 games for the Chippewas during the 2021-22 season. Coming off the bench, she averaged 9.1 minutes, 1.3 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. 

Hailing from New Boston, Indiana, Gordon finished her time at Heritage Hills High School with 1,358 points and 688 rebounds. In addition, she set the school’s single-game scoring record with a 41 point performance against Francis Joseph Reitz High School. 

After her senior year in high school, Gordon racked up multiple awards, including Third Team All-State from the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association and honorable mention All-State from the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association. 

Coming out of high school, Gordon committed to Auburn University. However, she reopened her recruitment after Auburn made a coaching change and eventually signed with the Chippewas. She will have three years of eligibility remaining.
