Renaissance High’s Siyeh Frazier had it all working in a 74-47 victory against Pershing to open the Detroit Public School League girls’ basketball season.
Frazier, a 5-8 sophomore guard, scored a career-high 30 points with seven rebounds, six steals and five assists in an all-around performance that earned her the nod as the PSL Proud Strong Learner of the Week.
“That truly was a breakout game for her,’’ Lady Phoenix coach Kiwan Ward said. “Siyeh worked really hard in the offseason to improve her defense and jump shot. She is a true scorer. When she’s on top of her game, nobody in the league can stop her.”
Ironically, Frazier’s breakout game came against Pershing, the alma mater of both her mother and father. “They’re both very supportive in everything I do,’’ she said.
In signaling her arrival as one of the PSL’s top players, Frazier is already gaining attention from college recruiters.
“She has a beautiful future ahead of her,” Ward said. “She’s taking care of business in the classroom with a 3.2 grade point average and she’s getting better as a player every day. I guarantee you’ll see her shining at the next level.”
The Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learner of the Week award is representative of the league’s top boys and girls athletes. The award is presented by the DPS Office of Athletics and sponsored for the fourth year in a row by Detroit-area McDonald’s owner-operators.
