Fredette about it!

I've never been much of a sports fan; but lately, college basketball is one of my favorites. Specifically, BYU. Jimmer Fredette is freakishly phenomenal on the basketball court. He drops three-pointers like most of us walk across a room, and he's a total blast to watch. Last night, he lead the offense with 32 points in the first half. That's as many points at halftime solely scored by Jimmer as the Wisconsin team did in its entire game on Saturday. He finished the game with a career-high of 52 points. Anyone who's watched him play is not surprised he won MWC Player of the Year. He's a likely candidate for NCAA Player of the Year as well. He has such a dedicated following that his first name has become a common verb...and if you've been "jimmered", you've pretty much been knocked on your bootie. A current rap song that's growing in popularity says "Teach Me How to Jimmer". My favorite line is "Jimmer Fredette; nothing but net" and it's so true! That kid never hits the rim. The BYU testing center had a sign that read, "I hope you jimmer your exam." There's no question what it means. If you "jimmer" it, you blow it out of the water.

  1. Jimmer Fredette is an amazing player! As long as he stays hot, I still think BYU has a legitimate shot of advancing to at least the Elite Eight despite the fact Brandon Davies is suspended. It will be up to Fredette and Jackson Emery to lead the team to success!
