Liberty junior guard/forward Megan Frazee has been recognized as the 2007-08 Richmond Times-Dispatch State Women's Basketball Player of The Year, it was announced in this morning's edition.

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio), the first Lady Flame to earn the prestigious award since Katie Feenstra in 2003-04, was included on the Times-Dispatch's first-team all-state roster a season ago. The junior was joined on this year's all-state team by Old Dominion's T.J. Jordan, VCU's Krystal Vaughn, Virginia's Monica Wright and James Madison's Tamera Young. Beth Cunningham of VCU garnered Richmond Times-Dispatch State Women's Basketball Coach of the Year honors. The honorees were selected by Times-Dispatch women's basketball writer Vic Dorr, Jr.

Frazee was the leading scorer (18.6 ppg) and rebounder (9.5 rpg) for a Liberty team which ended the season at 28-4, tying the school and Big South records for victories in a season. The Lady Flames won their 11th Big South Conference title in 12 years and played in the NCAA Tournament for the 11th time.

The Buckeye State native has earned a number of accolades this season, including Big South Player of the Year and Big South Women's Basketball Championship MVP distinctions. A six-time Big South Player of the Week, Frazee took home MVP honors at both of Liberty's regular-season tournaments, the National City Xavier Invitational and the Lady Rebel Christmas Classic. She was also honored for her work in the classroom, as the kinesiology major with a 3.91 GPA was a part of the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America second-team roster.

Statistically, Frazee broke the Liberty record with an .878 free throw percentage for the season. Her 595 points rank No. 3 on the Lady Flames' all-time single season list, while her 303 rebounds fall No. 5 in program history. Frazee eclipsed the 1,000-career point and 500-career rebound plateaus during the year. She will enter her senior season ranked No. 4 in program history with 1,387 career points and No. 5 with 704 rebounds.
