Jimmer Fredette


BYU Basketball's Point Guard

BYU's Jimmer Fredette drives in the lane against a University of Utah playerIt is Jimmer Fredette's senior year and he is living it up! Jimmer has had a solid career at BYU but he has really lit it up this season! Jimmer currently is the nation's leading scorer averaging 26.7 points per game. He was voted on the pre-season all american team and even practiced with team USA this summer. Jimmer scored 49 points against Arizona last year and 37 against Florida in the first round of the NCAA tourney. This year Jimmer put up 33 up against Arizona again, 39 against a tough UNLV team in Vegas, 47 against arch rival Utah, and most recently put up 42 points against CSU!!

Jimmer who?

Jimmer Fredette Smiles at BYUYet he is still a humble guy from Glens Falls New York. Jimmer grew up playing against his brother, guys on the playground, and even inmates. Yeah thats right inmates! His Dad took him and his brother to play in the local prison. This might explain why he has unlimited shooting range and some pretty sick dribbling handles. His dream was to play in the NBA and his brother even made him sign a contract to work his hardest to get to the NBA. Lately he is getting a lot of buzz by the media and especially be ESPN. Yet Jimmer stays grounded and keeps a perspective on things and you will continue to see the same composed and smiling Jimmer on the court.

Big Game for Jimmer

This Wednesday will prove to be a tough test for ranked number 9 BYU as they host ranked no. 6 San Diego St. This might just be the biggest basketball game at BYU in the last 10 years! Yet there has been quite the controversy over the new rules for camping out for the students that hold the all sports pass. There is a lively discussion on this facebook page about the new procedures, check it out: Click Here
Update: Jimmer scored 43 points against SDSU!!!
