NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Melvin Frazier lit up nationally-ranked Wichita State to the tune of 22 points last week. These performances are becoming the norm for the Higgins alum, but that wasn't the case only two years ago.

"I heard guys questioning his ability. Last year we got in and started talking to him about the weaknesses in his game. What we needed to do to develop his game. Try to help him get to the next level," said Tulane Head Coach Mike Dunleavy.

Now Frazier is moving up NBA mock drafts under the tutelage of head coach Mike Dunleavy. Tulane's head man coached in the NBA for numerous years, so he knew how to fix Frazier's game.

"He wanted me to work on my shooting, and that's what I've been doing as you can see we just got shots. Keep getting reps and reps, and it's showing in the game. So just keeping working at it. That's what he wants me to do," said Melvin Frazier.

Frazier is only a junior, so he could return Uptown, or head to the riches of the NBA.

"I see it, but I'm just trying to finish up the season. Whatever goes on from there, just go with the flow," said Frazier.

"He had a lot of attention form the defensive end of the floor, and now he's showing on the offensive end of the floor as well. He's one of those guys you look as a two-way player. He's a guy that's a very safe bet for the next level," said Dunleavy.
