For the second week in a row, Liberty senior guard/forward Megan Frazee has been recognized as the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Women's Basketball Player of the Week, it was announced today.

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio) has now won five Big South Player of the Week awards this season and a conference-record 17 weekly honors for her career. She averaged 19.5 ppg and 10.5 rpg last week, helping the Lady Flames defeat Winthrop and Coastal Carolina.

Frazee opened her week by leading all players in both points (22) and rebounds (season-high 15), helping the Lady Flames snap Winthrop's five-game winning streak with a 63-48 decision at the Vines Center on Feb. 16. The Buckeye State native also dished out four assists and blocked two Winthrop shots.

The senior then scored a game-high 17 points and added six rebounds, Feb. 21 at Coastal Carolina. Frazee's work on the glass helped Liberty outrebound the host Chanticleers, 40-12, in a 77-44 victory. The senior also shot six-for-six from the foul line, as the Lady Flames became only the second Big South team to win at Kimbel Arena this season.

Frazee made another bit of Big South Conference history last week, as well. She moved up to No. 10 on the conference's all-time scoring list with 1,704 points. Frazee, who also ranks No. 7 on the Big South all-time rebounding list with 860 caroms, is one of only three players to appear in the top 10 of both categories. The other two players are former Liberty standouts, Katie Feenstra and Elena Kisseleva.

Frazee and the Lady Flames return to the hardwood tonight at Charleston Southern. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at CSU Field House. Liberty can clinch the outright Big South Conference regular-season championship with a victory over the Lady Buccaneers. It would be the Lady Flames' 11th regular-season conference crown in the last 12 seasons.
