Liberty junior guard/forward Megan Frazee has been tabbed Big South Conference Choice Hotels Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the third time this season and the ninth time in her career, after leading the Lady Flames to a pair of wins last week.

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio) averaged 21.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.0 steals, leading the team in all four categories, as Liberty defeated George Mason by a 69-54 count and won its Big South opener at Charleston Southern, 82-53. The junior was efficient offensively, connecting on 65.2 percent (15-of-23) from the field, making two-of-three attempts from three-point range and nailing 90.9 percent (10-of-11) of her charity tosses.

Frazee also continued her climb up Liberty's all-time record lists. Her 88.5 percent free throw shooting this season has boosted the Ohioan to the top of Liberty's career list. She is making 79.2 percent of her free throws in two-plus seasons on the Lady Flames' roster. Frazee also ranks No. 9 with 1,094 career points and is No. 11 with 550 rebounds.

For the season, Frazee is the Big South leader in scoring (17.8 ppg) and free throw percentage. She is also second in the conference with 8.8 rpg. Nationally, Frazee is listed No. 20 in free throw percentage.
The Lady Flames have now captured a quartet of Big South Player of the Week honors this year. Frazee previously received the award on Nov. 26 and Jan. 7, and sister Moriah Frazee (Jr., F, Xenia, Ohio) was recognized on Dec. 10.

Frazee and the Lady Flames, 15-2 overall and 1-0 in the Big South, will look to extend their winning streak to five games tonight at 7 p.m., when Liberty visits Coastal Carolina (11-4, 0-1 Big South). Frazee averaged 22.0 ppg in the Lady Flames' pair of narrow victories against the Chanticleers a season ago.
