Liberty junior forward Moriah Frazee, who led the Lady Flames to home Big South wins over High Point and Winthrop last week, has won her second Big South Conference Choice Hotels Women's Basketball Player of the Week award.

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio), who previously captured the honor on Dec. 10, scored a team-high 18.0 ppg and collected 8.5 rpg as Liberty extended its winning streak to eight games and remained atop the Big South standings at 4-0.

She opened the week by scoring a career-high 20 points and grabbing nine rebounds during the Lady Flames' win over High Point on Jan. 29. Frazee then made every shot she took against Winthrop on Feb. 2, going 5-for-5 from the field and 6-for-6 from the free throw line, wrapping up a 12-for-12 week from the charity stripe. The junior post player led all players in the game in both points (16) and rebounds (8).

For the season, Frazee ranks in the top 10 of six Big South statistical categories. The conference leader in field goal percentage (.564), the Ohioan is also fifth in scoring (13.1 ppg) and tied for ninth in rebounding (5.6 rpg).

Frazee and her sister Megan Frazee (Jr., G/F, Xenia, Ohio) are the only two multiple recipients of the Big South Player of the Week award this season. Moriah Frazee has now captured the award twice, and Megan Frazee is a three-time winner.

The Lady Flames, who have matched their win total from last season at 19-2, travel to Radford Wednesday at 7 p.m., to battle the Highlanders. Radford, the preseason Big South favorite, is second in the conference standings, with a 3-1 loop mark.
