Megan Frazee is the second Lady Flame ever voted as Big South Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

On a day which saw her score a career-high 11 points, helping the San Antonio Silver Stars claim a 79-78 road victory over the Washington Mystics, Megan Frazee was honored for her stellar work in the classroom. The former Liberty hardwood standout was voted the 2008-09 Big South Conference Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year by the conference sports information directors, from a pool of each sport's Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio), who graduated in May with a 3.92 grade-point average in kinesiology, garnered one of the Big South's major individual honors for the second consecutive year. She was previously tabbed the 2007-08 Big South Female Student-Athlete of the Year. The Big South Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year award was also collected by a basketball player, as Gardner-Webb senior Aaron Linn took top honors.

Frazee captured the award by amassing 38 votes, leaving her four in front of Winthrop softball player Lisa Kingsmore's 34 tallies. Coastal Carolina volleyball player Jill Nyhof took third place in the voting with 20 points.

Frazee is the second Lady Flame ever to be voted Big South Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Danielle McNaney of the women's track & field squad captured the honor as a senior in 2004-05. The Buckeye State native is also the second women's basketball player in conference history to win the Big South Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year distinction. Former High Point Panther Leslie Cook took home the hardware in back-to-back years (2005-06 & 2006-07).

The guard/forward received several academic recognitions as a senior, highlighted by a first-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America selection. Frazee, also a second-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American as a junior, was included on the first-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District squad for the third consecutive season. She was also voted the Big South Scholar-Athlete of the Year for women's basketball and was one of 30 national nominees for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award.

Frazee's on-court resume is just as impressive, as she became the second player in program history to be named an honorable mention All-American by the Associated Press. The Richmond Times-Dispatch State Player of the Year and Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) Co-State Player of the Year, Frazee averaged 19.8 ppg and 9.9 rpg during her senior campaign. She helped Liberty claim its 12th Big South title in the last 13 seasons, on her way to winning Big South Player of the Year and Big South Championship MVP accolades.

Shortly after concluding her collegiate career, Frazee was selected by the San Antonio Silver Stars with the No. 14 pick in the WNBA Draft. She is averaging 4.2 ppg and 1.8 rpg for the defending Western Conference champion Silver Stars, who currently own a 6-6 record.
