Letter: SU basketball icon among the best

The Southern University family has lost one of the best players to set foot on the ‘Bluff.

Former basketball player Andrew “Blue” Frazier died last Tuesday in his hometown of Tampa, Fla. Frazier played under the late Coach Carl E. Stewart in the early ’70s. He was a leader on a team that averaged 96 points a game during the 1973-74 season.

This team was the first to win the initial SWAC Tourament. Frazier was an All-SWAC first team selection and an Honorable Mention NAIA All-American.

“Blue,” as he was often called, will be missed by friends and family.
