Kevin Durant Loves Jimmer Fredette
With no disrespect towards Kemba Walker, the best scoring guard in college basketball’s Q-rating is soaring to “off-the-charts” levels as more and more people gain exposure of Jimmer Fredette’s sweet-shooting ways. Fredette, while leading his BYU Cougars — currently 20-1 thanks the beatdown of San Diego State — is taking the nation by storm
, albeit, it’s slow-burning one.
Some of us knew about him before this season, but I digress.
Leading the way for the Cougars against previously-undefeated San Diego State was, of course, Fredette, who scored 43 points, thanks to an efficient 14-24 from the field, including 5-8 from behind the arc. Oh, and he was 10-11 from the free throw line, emphasizing just how good a shooter he really is. If that doesn’t do the trick, perhaps his NCAA-leading 27.4 points per game average will.

Much like the NBA/Marvel Comics
(the NHL, too) collaboration, the folks over at DC Comics have jumped in on the fun, partnering with Sports Illustrated to bring us their rendition of popular college basketball players. Thanks to Bryan Graham’s Twitpic account
, we have a preview of DC is offering.
The first three comics focus on Kansas State’s Jacob Pullen (Beardman), Villanova’s Corey Fisher (Streetball Legend) and BYU’s Jimmer Fredette (Jimmertime), and they all feature a super hero origin story/introduction to the featured player.
Check it out. Pullen’s at the top: After the jump >>
It’s about that time, so I’m leaving this post here for the first group of Thursday games, including BYU stud, Jimmer Fredette. BYU plays Florida (I’m picking BYU) and Old Dominion plays Notre Dame (feeling ODU here). This post will be a mish-mash of thoughts and observations from the initial session.
