Frazier Named WAC Player of the Week

Feb. 13, 2012

RUSTON - Louisiana Tech freshman forward Whitney Frazier has been named the Western Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week by

The El Dorado, Arkansas native averaged 16.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steals per game while leading Louisiana Tech to a pair of WAC road wins this week. Frazier shot 50 percent (12-24) from the field and 89 percent (8-9) from the free throw line.

In Tech's 82-76 win at Utah State, Frazier scored a career-high 25 points and pulled down seven rebounds. The amazing stat was that after being held scoreless in the first half, she scored all 25 points in the second half, including 14 in the final 6-plus minutes of the game. The 25 points were the most scored by a LA Tech freshman since former Kodak All-American Tamicha Jackson scored 26 points against Auburn in March of 1997.

The 25 point half was the first time a Lady Techster had scored 25 or more in a single half since Sheila Ethridge accomplished the feat on March 9, 1991 when she scored 25 in the first half of a win over Lamar. Ethtridge and Frazier are the only two Techsters to ever accomplish the feat.

Frazier then added seven points and six rebounds in Tech's win at Idaho, before fouling out with 11 minutes to play in the game.
