Gonzaga Gets Jimmered By BYU [VIDEO]
Just when you think that Glens Falls native and BYU star Jimmer Fredette was going to slow down in the NCAA Tournament, he dishes out yet another incredible performance.
Jimmer and the 3rd seeded BYU Cougars rolled over #11 Gonzaga by a score of 89-67 on Saturday evening in Denver. BYU advances to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1981 – back in the Danny Ainge era.
The Glens Falls High School graduate scored 34 points, 21 of those points from beyond the arc. He also had 6 assists and 2 rebounds to his scoring line. Jimmer shot 7 for 12 from 3-point range, 11 for 23 overall,
Fredette’s 34 points was the second most scored on Saturday, short of Kansas State’s Jacob Pullen who scored 38 points in the loss to Wisconsin.
So much for wilting under the pressure. That nation’s leading scorer has averaged 34.7 points in the month of March.
BYU will take on #2 Florida in the Sweet 16 on Thursday in New Orleans.
