Jimmer Fredette: The BYU Star's Top 10 Games This Season
Jimmer Fredette has all of a sudden been the hottest name on the college basketball scene. The 6'2" senior from BYU has put on show after show this season.
He is leading all of Division I basketball in scoring, averaging over 27 points per game. Fredette is the leader of a BYU team that is 20-1 and ranked ninth in the country. That No. 9 ranking is also about to change after beating conference rival San Diego State this past week.
