BYU's Jimmer Fredette's 52 Points Ties NCAA Season-Best

If you're a college basketball fan, you know the name Jimmer Fredette. And, you probably know the BYU senior guard is the nation's leader scorer (27. 8 points per game). Well, on Friday night the 6-foot-2 guard matched his average and then sum by tying a NCAA-season best of 52 points in a 87-76 victory against the New Mexico Lobos in a Mountain West Conference semifinal game. Fredette netted the same amount of points as Providence Friars senior guard Marshon Brooks did on Feb. 23 in a 94-93 loss to Notre Dame.

On Jan. 11, Fredette netted 47 points against the Utah Utes in a 104-79 victory. The Cougars (30-3 and No. 8 in both college basketball polls) advance to play either UNLV or San Diego State in the Mountain West Conference finals.

Fredette shot 22-of-37 (59.4 percent) from the field and 7-of-14 (50.0) from behind the 3-point arc. Surprisingly, Fredette attempted just one free throw.

In Brooks' 52-points game he went: 20-of-28 (71.4) from the floor, 6-of-10 from the 3-point land and 6-of-10 from the free-throw line.

I'd say Brooks' performance was a bit more impressive considering it was against the top team in the nation's best conference, but what do you think?
