Frazier Transfers to Lewis-Clark State
LEWISTON, ID--Lewis-Clark State College menís basketball coach George Pfeifer announced, Thursday, April 25, the transfer of Ricky Frazier (Seattle, WA/Shoreline Community College/Rainier Beach HS). He will be a junior at LCSC and have two years of eligibility.
"There is no doubt in my mind when we added Ricky Frazier to our team, we will now have the quickest player on the floor, or at least there wonít be anyone quicker night in and night out in any gym we play in," said Pfeifer. "The one thing he does is get the ball from the defensive end of the floor to the offensive end of the floor in a hurry. He is able to defend to defend the ball full-court and anticipates as well as anyone to get steals. He has proven himself to be a winner at every level. I feel very confident that he will be exciting for our fans to watch. I believe this, players will have to really get out and run the lanes hard on our team to stay up with how quickly he advances the ball up. I really believe Warrior basketball got a lot better when Ricky committed to us."
Frazier, a 5-10 guard, helped lead Shoreline CC to the North Division title, earning Division MVP and first-team North Division honors. He averaged 16.0 points per game, and was second in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) in assists per game with 6.7.

As a freshman, Frazier was the second leading scorer on the team, averaging 17.5 ppg. He averaged 5.1 apg and made 36% of his 3-point field goals. Frazier was also a second-team All-North Division selection.
Frazier graduated from Washington high school powerhouse, Rainier Beach, in 2000. A three-year starter, he helped lead the Vikings to the State 3A Tournament all three years, including a third place finish at the 2000 tournament. Frazier was selected to the All-Metro team as a senior and was a second-team All-State 3A Tournament selection.
