KALAMAZOO, MI - Redshirt freshman Taylor Williams made Western Michigan women’s basketball history Wednesday by tying the Broncos’ single-game rebounding record with 21 boards in a 74-66 win over Akron.
The 6-foot-2 forward out of Macomb Dakota tied the rebounding output of Megan Boguslawski, who set the WMU record in 1995, and the 21 boards ranks fourth in Mid-American Conference history.
The breakout performance marked Williams’ third consecutive double-double, and she’s now averaging 11.6 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.
Wednesday’s win snapped a five-game losing skid and brings the Broncos’ record up to 3-12 overall and 2-11 in MAC play, which is good for 11th in the league.
After that, it’s first or second-year players filling the scoresheet, with sophomore Shafer (Jackson Northwest) averaging 14.3 points per game, Williams netting 11.6 per contest and Lauren Ross (Muskegon Reeths-Puffer) adding 9.0.
