Liberty senior guard/forward Megan Frazee has been honored as the 2008-09 season's inaugural Big South Conference Women's Basketball Choice Hotels Player of the Week, it was announced this afternoon.

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio) helped the Lady Flames erase a 17-point deficit and take the lead during Friday evening's Preseason WNIT opening-round tilt versus VCU. However, the Rams came away with a hard-fought 59-57 victory in the season opener for both teams.

Frazee led all players in both points (28) and rebounds (11), scoring the most points in a Liberty women's basketball season-opening game since Elena Kisseleva tallied 30 points versus Bluefield on Nov. 23, 1996. The senior shot 11-of-15 from the field and added a pair of steals in her 40 minutes of work.

The Buckeye State native has now captured the Big South Player of the Week award 13 times during her four-year career. Only former Liberty standout Katie Feenstra has captured more Big South weekly women's basketball hardware. The Atlanta Dream center earned 15 Big South Player of the Week nods during her time at Liberty (2002-05).

Frazee and the Lady Flames will attempt to pick up their first win of the year Friday evening, when they meet UC Riverside (0-1) in a Preseason WNIT consolation game. Tip-off at Western Carolina's Ramsey Regional Activity Center in Cullowhee, N.C., is set for 5 p.m. The contest will pit the preseason favorites in the Big South and Big West Conferences against one another.
