Fromm Off To Hot Start As CMSU Hoops Season Gets Underway
While the local basketball season won’t get underway until next week, one former Scotland County standout is already doing her thing on the hardwood.
Meagan Fromm, a sophomore at Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, is expected to fill a key role for the Jennies as they enter the 2004-05 season.
In the team’s final pre-season tilt, Fromm poured in a game-high 20 points against the University of Missouri at the new Paige Sports Arena in Columbia on November 12. She came off the bench to hit back-to-back three pointers early in the first half and finished the game four of six from behind the arc. Overall she connected on eight of 13 shot attempts and also grabbed a team-high six rebounds in 25 minutes of action.
“Megan is an explosive offensive player who has been working on other parts of her game to make her a more complete player,” said CMSU Coach Dave Slifer. “We’ve been particularly pleased with her defensive efforts recently.”
Fromm scored 13 points in the team’s first pre-season game, a 71-61 win over the St. Louis Goldstars in Warrensburg October 31.
Fromm saw action in 25 of CMSU’s 28 games last season as a freshman. She averaged 4.2 points and 1.9 rebounds in just over 10 minutes per contest.
Last season the Jennies finished 15-13 overall and sixth in the MIAA conference with an 8-10 mark. CMSU has been picked to finish fourth in the coaches’ pre-season poll.
