Tim Frazier, Maggie Lucas Nominated for Senior CLASS Award

Tim Frazier and Maggie Lucas will almost certainly receive accolades for their performances on the basketball court this year, but the two hoops stars are already receiving nominations for excellence in being a student-athlete.

The two are nominated for the 2013-14 Senior CLASS Award in men’s and women’s basketball. The award honors senior athletes in multiple sports across four categories: Classroom, Character, Community, and Competition. The two join women’s soccer forward Maya Hayes and women’s volleyball right side Ariel Scott.

Frazier is arguably one of the best players in the Big Ten, despite being sidelined with an Achilles injury four games into the 2012-13 season. As a junior in 2011-12, Frazier averaged 18.8 points, 6.2 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.4 steals per game for the Nittany Lions, leading the team in every category en route to a first-team All-Big Ten selection. Frazier is also a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection, and is praised for his involvement in THON and Special Olympics.

Lucas is arguably one of the best players in America. Last season, Lucas was 15th in the country with 20.1 points per game, shooting 44.1 percent from the field, 46.2 percent from three, and 90 percent from the free throw line en route to being named PremierPlayers.com’s National Player of the Year. Lucas is also involved with several charities in the State College area and was an Academic All-Big Ten selection last year.

According to its website, “…the Senior CLASS Award honors the attributes of NCAA Division I senior student-athletes in four areas: community, classroom, character and competition. The award program is designed exclusively for college seniors who are utilizing their complete athletic eligibility, remaining committed to their university and pursuing the many rewards a senior season can bring.”
