Penn State Basketball: Frazier Named Finalist for 2014 Senior CLASS Award
Penn State graduate guard Tim Frazier has been selected as one of 10 finalists for the 2013-14 Senior CLASS Award according to a release. The award is presented to the NCAA Division I senior student-athlete with notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
Frazier is a two-time Dean’s List honoree who holds a bachelor's degree in supply chain and information systems management from the Smeal College of Business and currently is pursuing a second degree in communications. He graduated with over a 3.1 grade-point average and became Penn State's 10th three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.
On the court, Frazier is Penn State's all-time career assists leader and hit the game-winning shot to upend Indiana 66-65 on Wednesday night. His 16.2 points per game are second on the team, while his 6.0 assists per contest have stood atop the Big Ten all season.
Fans can vote for Frazier on the Senior Class Award website (http://www.seniorclassaward.com/vote) through March 24. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner. Fan votes will be combined with media and Division I head coaches’ votes to determine the winners.
The Senior CLASS Award winner will be announced during the 2014 NCAA Final Four.
Penn State football's John Urschel won the same award for his work in the classroom and on the football field in late 2013.
