Jimmer, BYU Onto 2nd Round

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.
