PROVO (GaeaTimes.com)- Jimmer Fredette was probably the biggest attraction in yesterday’s basketball match between the Brigham Young, whose ranking was at number 9 and San Diego State, who ranked number 4. It was because of this player that Brigham Young made its opponent witness its first defeat of the season with a finishing score of 71-58.
Jimmer Fredette scored 43 points for his team after the match. At the end of the first half, he scored 15 points. From the three point range, he was five-for-eight with 14-24 overall. It was because of him that BYU was active all through out the first half of the game. He was not only a three pointer in the match, but was also never allowed the opponent off the dribble to score. On the other hand, the main player of the San Diego state was Kawhi Leonard, who ended with only 22 points and 15 rebounds. They managed only nine-of-fifteen from the line, however that was not before the second half. With this win, BYU stands at a score of 20-1 and 6-0 overall, while San Diego stands at 20-1 and 5-1 overall, in the play league of Mountain West play.
Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant was full of appreciation for Jimmer Fredette and said that he is the best scored in the world. However, the player was too humble to accept that as he said in an interview that right now it is none other than Kevin Durant who is the best scorer in the world. Jared Sullinger, a player of the year candidate from Ohio said that Jimmer Fredette is going off right now. NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski, said that this player is a normal question about size and athletics. ESPN analyst Chad Ford is under the impression that if Jimmer Fredette can score against San Diego, then he can definitely score well in NBA.
