Megan Frazee and the Lady Flames will make their 12th-consecutive appearance in the Big South Women's Basketball Championship semifinal round, Saturday at 6 p.m.

Liberty junior guard/forward Megan Frazee has been named the Choice Hotels Big South Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the sixth time this season and the 12th time in her career.

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio) played only one game last week, but starred during Liberty's regular-season finale versus Radford on March 7. Frazee helped the Lady Flames hold off the Highlanders, 70-62, completing a season sweep of the Big South's second-place team. She paced all players in both points (26) and rebounds (13) and tied a career high with five steals. Frazee, who played all 40 minutes of the game, scored 17 of her points after the intermission.

For the season, Frazee leads the Big South in scoring (18.4 ppg) and free throw percentage (.876) and ranks second in rebounding (9.5 rpg). The junior, who has posted four-consecutive double-doubles to close out the regular season, is one of nine players in the nation currently averaging over 18.0 ppg and 9.0 rpg.

Frazee's six player of the week honors this season ties her for the second most in Big South history. Campbell's Tammy Brown was recognized six times during the 1990-91 season. Liberty alumnus Katie Feenstra set the conference standard, garnering nine player of the week awards in 2003-04.

Liberty (26-3, 11-1 Big South) will enter the Advance Auto Parts Big South Women's Basketball Championship as the No. 1 seed. The Lady Flames will meet either No. 4 seed High Point or No. 5 seed Coastal Carolina, Saturday at 6 p.m. at UNC Asheville's Justice Center. The game will be the first of two semifinal contests that evening.
