Megan Frazee was an All-Big South first-team selection and a member of the Big South All-Academic Team.

Liberty sophomore guard/forward Megan Frazee has been included on both the Big South All-Conference first-team roster and the Big South All-Academic Team, it was announced at tonight's Big South Women's Basketball Championship Awards Banquet at the Crest Center in Asheville, N.C. 

The five major conference awards were divided between four institutions. Coastal Carolina senior guard Alisha Dill, the fourth-leading scorer in the nation at 22.5 ppg, was honored as the Big South Player of the Year. Kelli Darden, a Radford junior forward/center who leads the conference in blocked shots (2.8 bpg), was tabbed the Defensive Player of the Year. Freshman of the Year laurels went to UNC Asheville guard Kyla Jones, a four-time Big South Freshman of the Week. 

High Point, the conference regular season champion, swept the final two honors, as Tooey Loy was named Coach of the Year for the second time in three years and senior guard Leslie Cook took home her second-consecutive Scholar-Athlete of the Year award. 

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio) was the lone sophomore among the five members of the all-conference first team. She finished the regular season as the conference leader in both free throw percentage (.782) and three-point field goal percentage (.425). Frazee, the Preseason Big South Player of the Year, ended up second among Big South players in scoring (17.0 ppg), rebounding (8.2 rpg), and defensive rebounding (5.5 rpg). She was also third in offensive rebounding (2.8 rpg) and fifth in field goal percentage (.487). 

The Buckeye State native, who tied for the conference lead with 11 double-doubles, became the 10th different Lady Flame to win all-conference first-team laurels in the institution's 16 seasons as a Big South member. Frazee posted seven of the 15 games of at least 20 points and 10 rebounds posted by Big South players this season. She won a quartet of Big South Player of the Week awards during the season, tying her with Dill for the most of any conference player. 

A kinesiology major with a 3.865 GPA, Frazee added All-Academic Team status to her previous academic recognition. She was named an ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District first-team selection earlier in the season. Frazee helped the Lady Flames achieve the 14th-highest team GPA (3.338) last season. 

Frazee and the Lady Flames will enter the Big South Women's Basketball Championship at the Justice Center as the No. 3 seed. Liberty will open its quest for an 11th-straight conference tournament title Thursday evening at 8 p.m., against No. 6 Charleston Southern.
