The senior will lead a Penn State team that returns four players that started at least 16 games last year and its top two scorers. Joining Frazier, who finished second in the Big Ten at 18.8 ppg, will be junior guard Jermaine Marshall (Etters, Pa.), who posted 10.8 ppg last year, and Southern Mississippi transfer D.J. Newbill (Philadelphia, Pa.), who sat out last season after posting 9.2 ppg and 6.2 rpg as a freshman for the Golden Eagles in 2010-11. Penn State will return 70 percent of its scoring, 60 percent of its rebounding and 78 percent of its assists from Chamber's first team.
