Heading down the college basketball home stretch, Glens Falls native Jimmer Fredette is in a head-to-head battle with UConn’s Kemba Walker for the National Player of the Year award. 

After Walker dropped 33 points in the Huskies Big East Semifinal victory over Syracuse, it was Jimmer’s turn.

The Glens Falls native scored a career-high 52 points as #8 BYU cruised to a 87-76 win over New Mexico in the Mountain West Semifnals.  Jimmer’s previous career-high was 49 points vs. Arizona back in 2009.

Fredette set an all-time record for points in a Mountain West tournament game, tied the Division I single-game point mark for the year and became BYU’s career leading scorer – passing Danny Ainge (the former Boston Celtic).

The nation’s leading scorer went 22 of 37 from the field and had 33 points by halftime.  Jimmer broke his own tournament record of 45 points.  His 52 points were the most in a conference tournament game in the last 15 seasons.

The Glens Falls High School graduate, who led the Indians to the Class “A” State Title game in 2007, has now scored at least 20 points in 18 straight games.

Up next for the top-seeded Cougars – 6th ranked San Diego State in the Mountain West Conference Championship game on Saturday night.   The Aztecs beat UNLV in the other semifinal, 74-72.
