Frasor Ready for 'Late Night'

Bobby Frasor's life is fairly simple these days – but he's hoping that will change this weekend.

Frasor and fellow North Carolina commits Marcus Ginyard and Danny Green will join recruit Andrew Bynum and sophomore sensation Eric Wallace in Chapel Hill for Midnight Madness.

"It's going to be awesome," said the 6-3, 180-pound Brother Rice (Ill.) senior combo guard. "I don't know what to expect and that's part of what makes it so exciting. I don't know what I'm going to be doing."

"I'm looking forward to having a good time," he added. "Meeting people and seeing how it is and the lifestyle. I just want to get a chance to hang out with the players."

For Frasor, who made his decision after taking an unofficial visit to North Carolina, this will be his chance to visit his future school on an official trip.

"I'd really like to get a chance to meet Coach (Dean) Smith," Frasor said. "If he's there."

Frasor's parents will also make the trek to Chapel Hill.

Frasor, who will as usual man the point guard position for his high school team this season, realizes that he'll need to become more aggressive offensively – now that some of the top shooters have departed.

"We have three starters back," Frasor said. "We're not overly athletic, but we're smart."

Frasor said his left knee is starting to feel better after suffering from a bout of tendonitis which began to bother him at the start of the summer.

"That's why I wore a brace most of the summer," he added. "I went to the doctor and am doing stretches now and it's feeling much better."

Frasor has been working out, but Brother Rice won't have its first practice until Nov. 8 – and will have its first game two weeks later on Nov. 22 against Thornwood High.

Unfortunately, for Frasor and his teammates, coach Pat Richardson has elected not to play in any big-time high school tournaments.

"It would have been nice, but I'm not going to complain," Frasor said.

Frasor played against Green in the ABCD All-Star Game, but he's never seen UNC-bound big man Tyler Hansbrough in person.

"I know he plays hard," Frasor said. "That's what everyone says about him. Danny Green is a solid and smart player and it should be fun to play with him, also."

While Frasor isn't one of those guys who became a recruiter after committing to North Carolina, he is hopeful of one thing.

"Maybe we can get a commitment from Andrew Bynum while we're there," Frasor said.
