Alex Frazier has lived up to her preseason notion that she can be a dependable scorer for this East Carolina women’s basketball team.

The junior guard is on a scoring surge heading into tonight’s home game against American Athletic Conference last-place squad Memphis, having scored at least 12 points in four straight outings. She is at 6.9 points per game for the season, which is up from her marks the last two years (4.0 and 3.1), and from when it was at 5.1 in mid-December.

ECU (13-11, 5-6 American) is 4-2 in its last six games thanks in large part to the guard play by Frazier and Lashonda Monk, a freshman who has moved up as the Pirates’ leader in scoring during league action.

Monk started ECU’s previous four games, which led to scoring increases for her and Frazier. Even in an 88-47 defeat at South Florida last Wednesday night that stopped the Pirates’ three-game win streak, Frazier totaled a team-high 13 points and Monk had eight.

Memphis (7-17, 2-9) last won Jan. 13 at Tulsa, which was followed by seven straight losses heading into tonight.
