In the Wildcats 76-73 win over the Beavers, Frye led the Cats in scoring and rebounds and did both when they needed him most. Because of suspensions to Will Bynum and Isaiah Fox as well as foul trouble to Dennis Latimore, Frye was forced to play a career high 38 minutes.
During his time on the court Frye was a monster on the boards, ripping down 16, including eight offensive rebounds. Frye's rebounding was absolutely critical as he accounted for over 50% of the team's rebounds in a game where the Wildcats were outrebounded 34-29.
Frye was steady from the field, hitting 4-of-8 shots, but he was perfect from the line where he converted all ten of his free throw attempts.
The true freshman from Phoenix had only one block following a six-block performance against Michigan State, but he added two steals and an assist to his stat line.
For his efforts, Channing Frye is named the Performance Fitness Systems Player of the Game.
