Moriah Frazee was a second team all-state honoree, as voted by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID).

Two of the Liberty women's basketball team's three Frazee triplets have been honored by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) as all-state performers, it was announced today. Megan Frazee is a first team all-state selection for the second consecutive season, while Moriah Frazee is included on the second team.

For Megan Frazee (Jr., Xenia, Ohio), it is her second all-state mention this season. She was previously tabbed the Richmond Times-Dispatch State Women's Basketball Player of the Year. James Madison's Tamera Young earned VaSID State Player of the Year accolades, while teammate Dawn Evans won the State Freshman of the Year award. Wendy Larry of Old Dominion was voted State Coach of the Year.

Megan Frazee's junior season was arguably her best yet. The guard/forward averaged a career-best and Big South-leading 18.6 ppg to go along with 9.5 rpg and a career-high 2.7 apg. She shot 87.8 percent from the free throw line, setting a school single-season record and ranking No. 10 nationally in the category.

Accordingly, Megan Frazee earned numerous awards and honors during the year. In addition to those already mentioned, she took home Big South Player of the Year and Big South Tournament MVP accolades. Frazee was also voted MVP at the National City Xavier Invitational and Lady Rebel Christmas Classic. She was additionally a six-time Big South Player of the Week and made the dramatic game-winning basket against Radford in the Big South title game, with just 0.3 seconds left. A standout in the classroom as well, Frazee was a second team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American.

Sister Moriah Frazee (Jr., Xenia, Ohio) also established a number of career highs during her junior season. She averaged double figures in the scoring column for the first time in her career, notching 13.2 ppg. The junior post player also snagged a career-best 5.6 rpg. Her area of greatest improvement, however, came in the field goal percentage category. A 42.3-percent field goal shooter entering the season, Frazee connected on 58.1 percent of her attempts in 2007-08, pacing the Big South and ranking No. 4 in Liberty history.

Moriah Frazee joined her sister as a first team All-Big South honoree at season's close. She also garnered the first two Big South Player of the Week plaques of her career, on Dec. 10 and Feb. 4. Frazee was also recognized for her academic performance, earning inclusion on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District first team.

The duo helped Liberty win its 11th Big South title in the last 12 seasons and advance to the NCAA Tournament for the 11th time. The Lady Flames tied a program record for wins, going 28-4 on the season.
