Tim Frazier, the guard who led Penn State in just about every category last year, will miss the rest of this season.
A Penn State spokesman said Frazier ruptured his Achilles tendon and has been scheduled to have surgery. He sustained the injury Sunday in a game against Akron, and it originally was thought to be a minor ankle injury.
Frazier entered this season as a Wooden Award candidate and had led Penn State in scoring his first three games. Last year, Frazier averaged 18.8 points, 6.2 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 2.4 steals. He was the only returning player in the Big Ten who was featured on the All Big Ten first team last year.
