The Niagara Purple Eagles basketball team has signed guard Dom Fragala, a record-setting scorer from Virginia.
Fragala averaged 36.9 points a game this season for Champe High School in Aldie, Va. Fragala scored 922 points as a senior, third most on Virginia's all-time season list. He was 27 points shy of the record held by Hall-of-Famer Allen Iverson, who scored 948 points for Bethel High in 1993. Fragala made 91 three-point shots in 25 games.
"Dom is a great addition to our program,” said Niagara coach Chris Casey. “He shoots the ball at a high level and has the ability to pass and make plays for his teammates. His scoring prowess showed in his senior year and that will translate to the MAAC throughout his career."
Lack of height contributed to Fragala being lightly recruited. He also had an offer from Mississippi Valley State. His recruitment figures to position Niagara to replace Kahlil Dukes, who is entering his final season for the Purple Eagles. Dukes averaged 15.6 points a game last season as Niagara's top shooting guard.
Fragala scored 63 and 52 points in back-to-back games this season. He scored 28 of the 63 points from the free-throw line, which was a single game state record. He averaged 12.4 free-throws made per game.
