Former Liberty women's basketball standout Megan (Frazee) Leuzinger was inducted into the Athletes in Action (AIA) Hall of Faith during the organization's annual Night of Champions ceremony, Saturday at the Schindler Banquet Center in her hometown of Xenia, Ohio.

Leuzinger and Kansas City Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt comprised the 11th class of inductees into the Hall of Faith. They join an impressive group of previous inductees, including Anthony Munoz, John Wooden, Bart Starr, Jim Tressel, Clark Kellogg, Kay Yow, Ruth Riley, Tamika Catchings and Allyson Felix.

After graduating from Liberty in 2009, Leuzinger played two seasons with the WNBA's San Antonio Silver Stars (2009 and 2010). She has also spent seven seasons playing professionally overseas, recently wrapping up the 2015-16 campaign with BGD in Istanbul, Turkey.

Leuzinger earned numerous awards at Liberty, including Big South Player of the Year and Big South Championship MVP honors as both a junior (2007-08) and senior (2008-09). She was a 2009 honorable mention AP All-American, as well as a 2009 first team CoSIDA Academic All-American.

Leuzinger, who averaged 18.5 ppg and 9.3 rpg during her collegiate career, ranks No. 3 in Liberty history for points (1,883) and No. 4 for rebounds (951). She owns program records for career free throw percentage (.805) and double-doubles (50).

Leuzinger earned her bachelor's degree in health and physical education from Liberty in 2009. She then completed a master's degree in coaching and athletic administration from Concordia in 2011.
