Frazier and Lucas Finalists for Senior CLASS Award

Basketball’s Tim Frazier and Maggie Lucas have been named finalists for the Senior CLASS Award. Frazier and Lucas are each one of ten finalists for the Men’s Basketball and Women’s Basketball categories for the annual award.

The award is given to a Division I senior who have remained committed to their university and excel in four categories: community, classroom, character, and competition. The award is an acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School. Finalists are selected by Division I coaches in each respective sport, the national media, and fans. Fans then vote for each finalist on the award’s website.

Frazier, a redshirt senior, is averaging 16.2 points per game in 24 games so far this season. The point guard recently became Penn State’s career-leader in assists with 602 in his five seasons. He is currently averaging 6 assists per game, which leads the Big Ten. Frazier was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection before finishing up his first degree in Supply Chain and Information Systems Management. Frazier is competing against the likes of Ohio State’s Aaron Craft, Syracuse’s C.J. Fair, and Creighton’s Doug McDermott for the award.

Lucas, a senior majoring in Recreation, Park, and Tourism Management, was the Big Ten Player of the Year last year. She is currently second in school history in scoring, with 2,322 and is averaging 21 points per game this season which is second in the Big Ten. Lucas was previously an Academic All-Big Ten selection in 2012. The Lady Lion is currently competing for the award against other finalists like Jordan Hooper of Nebraska, Stefanie Dolson of Connecticut, and Haley Peters of Duke.
