Fredette Wins Oscar Robertson Trophy, All-American

The United States Basketball Writer’s Association has awarded the Oscar Robertson Player of the Year Trophy to Jimmer Fredette. Fredette averaged 28.9 points a game and 4.3 assists for the BYU Cougars, and led them to the Sweet Sixteen before being eliminated in Overtime by Florida.

Robertson will present the award to Fredette on Friday, April 1st in Houston, as part of the Final Four festivities.

UPDATE: It was also announced today that Fredette was the leading vote getter (64 of 65 first team votes) to be among this year’s NCAA All-American First Team. Based on that vote tota, methinks the AP Player of the Year is coming next…

  1. Great. Now we’l never hear the end of Jimmermania from the insufferable Zoobies.

    Hopefully he’ll go the way of Ty Detmer – sooner rather than later.

  2. Agreed. Amazing season for him, but good in the MWC is a very different thing than good in the Association. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with him on Draft Day.
