AP All-America Team: Kemba Walker, Jimmer Fredette On First Team

Glens Falls, N.Y. native Jimmer Fredette, the nation's leading scorer, has been named to The Associated Press All-America Team. Kemba Walker of UConn, who has led the Huskies into this weekend's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Final Four, is also on the first team. They are joined by Nolan Smith of Duke, JaJuan Johnson of Purdue and Jared Sullinger of Ohio State.

BYU's Fredette led the country with an average of 28.5 points per game. In voting done before the NCAA Tournament, he received all but one vote from the 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.

Question, fans of the New Jersey Nets and New York Knicks. Would you want Fredette on your team? I don't think he is a fit with the Knicks at all. The Knicks might benefit from Fredette's incredible range, but between Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire there are so many shots to go around. Fredette needs the ball, and New York is not a place where he would get it. I think he might be a fit in New Jersey as a compliment to point guard Deron Williams and center Brook Lopez. I have no idea how good of a pro Fredette will be, but he has great range and he can create shots from difficult angles. The Nets could use those skills.

Walker 23.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists and was the leader of one of the youngest teams in the country. He has led the Huskies on an incredible run, winning five games to earn the Big East Conference title and getting Connecticut to the Final Four.
