Bleacher Report - Is Fredette the Next Nash?

+

One skill that almost always translates well from college to the NBA is pure shooting. No one can argue that Jimmer Fredette doesn't possess that skill. The knock against him from many scouts are the same ones leveled at most white, American guards. Jimmer has been said to lack the athleticism and point guard skills such as passing and dribbling that would allow him to be successful at the next level. In response to such criticism, I'd like to remind everyone that last year was Jimmer's first as a point guard, and he steadily improved throughout the season. He's been working on his ball handling and passing over the offseason, which will help him continue to improve. As for the knock on his athleticism, I would say, look at Steve Nash. If one were to rate the NBA's current point guards based solely on athleticism, Nash would probably be outside the top 20. But if that same person were to rate all the league's point guards while taking everything into consideration, he'd be crazy to have Nash outside the top five. Fredette would be wise to study the way Steve Nash plays. Perhaps he should even try to emulate certain aspects of Nash's game (while still maintaining his own unique basketball style or personality).

Sports Illustrated - BYU Backcourt Among Nation's Finest

+

Fredette, who averaged 22.1 points and 4.7 assists as a junior, and pulled out of the NBA Draft this spring, is among the early front-runners for national player of the year honors. Emery isn't well-known outside the Mountain West, but he's a deadeye shooter (43.1 percent on threes) and had the fifth-highest steals percentage (5.0) in the country last season.

Sports Illustrated - Emery Among Nation's Top Defenders

+

On a team where all the national attention is on his backcourt mate, All-America candidate Jimmer Fredette, Jackson Emery deserves recognition for being one of the country's best backcourt defenders. He was a member of the Mountain West's all-defensive team last season after posting a steal percentage of 5.0 -- the fifth-best in the nation. He was a huge reason why the Cougars had the most-efficient defense in the MWC.

Deseret News: Vai Sikahema on Reader's Response to Post on O'Neill Chambers

1

"Personally, I don't "tend to view almost everything through our unique and rather narrow/specific LDS worldview or filter..." No, I COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY view the world through the prism of my LDS faith. Simple as that. I do so because it's what SHAPES my views, my opinions, my buying habits, what I watch, what I read, what I wear, my relationship with colleagues, neighbors, friends and of course my family; in total, my whole life is shaped by my views as a Latter-day Saint. More so than my culture, heritage, education, up-bringing, socio-economics, standing in my community, life experience - though clearly, all those are factors, but by far the greatest influence in how I personally view the world, is my LDS faith." ... "Most of my NFL teammates were not LDS and the majority of them wouldn't have come to BYU for obvious reasons. But you might be surprised at some of the NFL greats who I think would've thrived at BYU. Not that they would have come in the first place, but if they did, a few I personally know would have thrived. May not shock you, but try these on for size... Reggie White. Brian Dawkins. Brian Westbrook. All-Americans. All Pros. All African American. All non-LDS. All self-disciplined. All devout in their faith. You know why I think they would've loved BYU?"

Game Preview: BYU vs. Nevada

The BYU QB Conundrum

+

The Brigham Young Cougars quarterback situation has evolved from being undecided after fall camp to a dilemma after game one, and to a controversy after game two. After game three, the QB situation is now a conundrum. Neither Riley Nelson nor Jake Heaps has outplayed the other and made an overwhelming case to be the one, as Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall has said he was waiting for.
