La'Keshia Frett (born June 12, 1975 in Carmel, California, U.S.) is a former collegiate and professional basketball player. She is currently an assistant coach for the women's basketball team at the University of Georgia.
University of Georgia
After being named the 1993 National Prep Player of the Year at Phoebus High School in Hampton, Virginia, Frett attended the University of Georgia and played for their women's basketball team, averaging 15.2 points and 6.9 rebounds during her collegiate career from 1993 to 1997.
She was a three–time All-Southeastern Conference (SEC) first team selection, and was named the 1993-94 "SEC Freshman of the Year".
By the time she graduated, she had scored 242 points in 15 NCAA tournament appearances, ranking third time all-time among scorers in the university's history.
She was also a member of the silver medal-winning basketball team at the 1995 World University Games, and led the team in scoring, averaging 18.0 points per game.
ABL and WNBA
After the 2000 season ended, the Sparks traded Frett to the Sacramento Monarchs in exchange for Latasha Byears. Frett played for the Monarchs for the next three seasons before signing a free agent contract with the Charlotte Sting. However, the Sting waived her halfway through the 2004 season.
A week after being waived, she signed with the New York Liberty and played for them during the remainder of the season, as well as the following 2005 season.
Shortly after the 2005 WNBA season ended, Frett returned to her alma mater, the University of Georgia, after being hired as an assistant coach for the women's basketball team for the 2005-06 season.
On April 2006, Frett announced her retirement from the WNBA to devote herself full-time to her collegiate coaching position.
