Add another award to Jimmer Fredette’s mantle.

Today, the Glens Falls native was named the Associated Press college basketball player of the year.

It’s the 7th post-season honor for Fredette.  He also won the player of the year awards from the Basketball Times, CBSSports.com, SI.com, The Sporting News as well as winning the Adolph Rupp and Oscar Robertson trophies.

The nation’s leading scorer led BYU to a 32-5 record and a trip to the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16.  Fredette averaged 28.5 points per game.

The Cougars spent much of the year ranked in the top 10, won the Mountain West Conference regular season title and lost to San Diego State in the league’s championship game.

Fredette received 48 votes from the 65-member national media panel. Kemba Walker of Connecticut was second with 11 votes followed by Nolan Smith of Duke and Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger.

Fredette is the first BYU player to win the award and the first from the Mountain West since Andrew Bogut of Utah in 2005.
