The NCAA Tournament Edition of the "Jimmer Show" premiered in Denver on Thursday night and opening night was quite entertaining.

Fredette scored 32 points to lead 3rd seeded BYU to a 74-66 win over #14 Wofford in the Southeast Region.

The Glens Falls native was double and even triple-teamed most of the game, but still managed to score over 30 points for the 5th time in the last 6 games.  Fredette came into the Tournament as the nation's leading scorer - averaging 28.5 points per game.

Wofford actually shut down and frustrated Fredette for much of the first half and led 25-21 with 5 minutes left. But Fredette made two free throws and a 3-pointer during a 9-0 run and BYU (31-4) never trailed again.

Fredette, , who led Glens Falls High School to the New York State Class "A" Championship game back in 2007, went just 10 of 25 from the field and 2 of 9 from three-point range.  But when the Cougars needed him most, "The Jimmer" came through with baskets on two straight possessions to give BYU a 49-41 lead in the 2nd half.

Jimmer also added 4 rebounds and a team-high 8 assists.

BYU (31-4) will next play the winner of the St. John's and Gonzaga game on Saturday in Denver.  I honestly think the Cougars can do some damage in this tournament but Jimmer has to score more than 32 points on 25 shots.
