The SEC league office rewarded J.J. Frazier for his efforts in two Georgia wins by naming him the conference's Player of the Week Monday.
Frazier scored 28 points in a 60-55 win over Alabama last Thursday, which was followed by a 29-point performance in an 82-80 win over LSU. The latter came while Frazier dealt with flu-like symptoms as his day began with a trip to a local hospital's urgent care clinic, since the campus health center was closed.
Against Alabama, Frazier scored nine of Georgia's final 12 points, which included multiple buckets and a trip to the free-throw line that extended one-point leads to three.
Against LSU, Frazier went 9-of-18 from the field for 29 points but also dished out eight assists. Frazier's biggest play came with Georgia trailing 80-79 with 6.7 seconds left to go. Frazier weaved through traffic and drew a foul under the basket with only 1.6 seconds remaining.

Frazier then calmly hit both free throws, which not only ultimately gave Georgia a win, but kept its NCAA Tournament hopes alive.
Frazier has scored 28 points or more in four of his past five games. The senior 5-foot-8 point guard had these games last week without Georgia forward Yante Maten, who is out for the rest of the regular season with a right knee sprain.
