It’s Official: Frazier Will Be Back For 2013-2014 Season

The Penn State Basketball community took a collective sigh of relief this afternoon when the news was released that Tim Frazier was officially granted his medical redshirt. His Medical Hardship Waiver, granted by the NCAA, will give him one more season of eligibility for the Nittany Lions.

Frazier was injured on November 18 when he ruptured his Achilles and was forced to sit out for the rest of the season. Two weeks ago, he went on his first run, and just this week, according to his Twitter account, he was jumping for the first time since his injury.

In the 2011-2012 season, Frazier was first in the conference in assists, and second in scoring and steals.

The waiver gives the team an opportunity to come back from 10-21 season with Frazier, an All Big-Ten 2012 First Team member, and 4 of its top 5 scorers from the 2012-2013 season.

Things are starting to look up for the Nittany Lions and, as Head Coach Pat Chambers has noted, Frazier’s partnership with D.J. Newbill just might give the team the “best backcourt in the country.”
