Paige Frauendorfer–Career Retrospect

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Retrospects,Women's Basketball — Jon Green @ 10:00 am

We’ve previous covered the career of Carly Cator, Carolyn Blair-Mobley, and Jamie Nash.

Today we’ll cover Jamie Nash’s career with the Mavericks. Paige played her high school ball for tiny Humphrey High School. She’s one of those great players born out of small time high school athletics. Paige was a four-time all-conference in D1, was a finalist for Wendy’s High School Heisman award in Nebraska, was all-conference four times in volleyball and won the state long jump three times. Woah. After that spectacular high school career she came to UNO and started her first three games. It was a somewhat slow start as she only scored 10 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in those first three games. She didn’t start again the rest of the year and while her stats weren’t spectacular as a freshman she showed a few moments of brilliance that provided a lot of hope for the future. Paige grew into the player she is today over time. 6.2 points per game as a freshman, 9.1 points per game as a sophomore, 13.1 points per game last year and then finally 14.8 points per game this year. She’s always been a good rebounder as well. She’s made 83 starts and has 1157 career points, 681 career rebounds, 188 career assists, 168 career steals and 59 career blocks.

1st Point – 11/15/09 vs. Dana – Paige had to wait quite a while to get her first point. She missed her first five FGs and her first FT attempt but finally hit a jumper off a Kylee Rinehart assist with 7:36 left to make it 65-43 Omaha.
