Women's Hoop Brings Frame into the Fold

DURHAM, N.H. – Head coach Maureen Magarity and her staff announced Wednesday that Morgan Frame (Waterville, Maine) will join the women's basketball program and attend the University of New Hampshire this spring after transferring from Saint Anselm College. She will sit out the rest of this season and the first half of the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer regulations and will be a sophomore when she begins playing in 2011-12.

"We are excited about Morgan joining our team and feel she will be a great fit in our program. Her athleticism, size and mobility will bring us depth at the post position," said Magarity. "Morgan's work ethic and competitiveness will bring a new level to practice immediately."

Last season Frame played in 20 games including three starts for the Hawks as a freshman, averaging 6.1 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. She finished the 2009-10 campaign shooting a solid 46.3 percent (50-108) from the floor, while leading the team in scoring in two games and leading the team in rebounds in three contests. In addition, she also tallied 18 assists, six blocks, and seven steals.

Prior to her arrival at Saint Anselm, Frame was a 1,000-point scorer at Waterville Senior High School where she was a four-sport athlete playing basketball, soccer, cross-country and track and field. She was named the Gatorade Player of The Year in Maine and was also tabbed Miss Maine Basketball as a senior.

Frame, who earned high honors all four years at Waterville Senior, was named the Portland Herald Player of the Year during her junior and senior seasons. Additionally, she was a Bangor Daily Tournament MVP as a sophomore, junior and senior.

The Wildcats return to action Wednesday, Jan. 26 (7 p.m.) when they face off against Maine at Alfond Arena.
