Crazy for Jimmer
The Fredette Frenzy is already full form this year. BYU guard Jimmer Fredette had an unreal performance last night, single-handedly giving unbeaten San Diego State their first loss of the season. The 9th ranked Cougars rolled to a 71-58 win, led by Jimmer’s 43 points. He’s the nation’s leading scorer, and without a doubt is the most unheralded player in college basketball:
The chant started up with about a minute left in the game, gathering timbre as the entire Marriott Center crowd took it up: “You got Jimmered!”…THAT’s when Jimmer Fredette graduated from folk hero to rock star.
“That was a little crazy,” said Fredette later. “I had never experienced that before. It was cool … but a little scary.”…”He’s a great player who knows how to get open shots,” said sophomore forward Brandon Davies. “When he’s hot like that all we do is crash the boards and get the ball to him.”
San Diego coach Steve Fisher said Fredette is “as good a player as I have ever coached against. He is just sensational and extremely hard to guard. Fredette scored every time he got the ball there for a stretch.”
