High School Career

Marquette Career

Frazier assumed the starting forward position later in the 1971-72 season when Jim Chones left for the ABA. He averaged 5.8 points per game during the 1971-72 season but averaged 9.5 points per game as a starter.

During the 1972-73 season, Frazier averaged 10.9 points per game.

He was known as a very quick player with good moves around the basket and a good rebounder despite his size. Unfortunately, his career was troubled with numerous nagging injuries.


Jim Chones on George Frazier's buzzer beater against Memphis:

The first thing you need to know is that George Frazier was the most athletic guy I have ever played basketball with…that includes the pros. He was 6-5, 220 lbs, and had a forty inch vertical. He could handle the ball against anyone but the only thing he did not have was a jumper. That is the only thing that prevented him from playing professionally. The game was nationally televised. They were triple teaming me so the last shot was supposed to go to Allie McGuire or Bob Lackey. George got it and shot a mid ranger and the damn thing goes in. We were so surprised, the guy had never made a jumper and people now wanted to know who he was. We were a young team who played in a hostile place in the South and we didn’t get a call that entire game. George made a big shot; there is no doubt about it.
