BIRMINGHAM, Ala. --- UAB junior guard Chad Frazier recently sat down with UABSports.com for a brief question and answer session. Frazier is one of six newcomers on this year's team who will wear the Green and Gold for the first time on Sunday against Milligan (Tenn.) College at 2 p.m.
Talk about your decision to come play basketball at UAB. How has the experience been so far?
"I made my decision off a great coaching staff here who recruited me. This is a great opportunity for me to come here and and kind of run the show for a great program with a lot of tradition."
How would you describe your style of play?
"I'm a 6-foot-4 point guard who can score in a lot of ways. I can post up, hit the mid-range and I can get everyone else involved."
Talk about your high school playing days at First Assembly Christian School in Concord, N.C.
"My high school was very competitive. Charlotte has a lot of good high school programs all around. I was a shooting guard all through high school, so I was used to scoring a lot. When I got to junior college I switched to point guard, and have been working on distributing the ball more."
What is something interesting about you that most people may not know?
"Before the game, I listen to Taylor Swift. Right now, my favorite song is either 22 or White Horse."
What is something you like to do outside of basketball?
"I'm a video game freak. My teammates always make fun of me because I play all types of games -- like shooting games, racing games or really any type of video game."
Point guards are sometimes known as the leaders of the team. How would you describe your leadership style?
"I'm a lead-by-example type of guy. I'm a quiet and laid back guy, but I am starting to be more vocal. During my sophomore year I really started to be vocal, so I am trying to build on that here at UAB."
