TUCSON - Former University of Arizona Wildcat women's basketball player Ashley Frazier will participate in commencement activities this weekend.
"We are very proud of Ashley and her accomplishments," head coach Niya Butts said. "A college degree is something no one can take away from you and is the key to a successful life after basketball. She was an excellent contributor for us on the court during her playing days and she is an academic role model for our current players."
Frazier, a 5-6 guard from Dallas, Texas, earned her degree in communications. She was a two-year letterwinner for the Wildcats after transferring from South Plains College in Levelland, Texas prior to the 2008-09 season. She started and played in all 62 games of her career and averaged 34.1 minutes per game.
She was an integral part of the 2009-10 squad when the Wildcats finished the season with 14 wins, their most victories in a season since 2005. In their historic win over Oregon on January 16, Arizona scored a school-record 119 points. The Cats won the Iona College Tip-Off Tournament to start the season before advancing to the Pac-10 Tournament Quarterfinals for the second-straight season at its conclusion.
