Jared Sullinger, Greg Oden, and a team full of Ohio State alumni? No match for the firepower of Team Fredette.
Team Fredette picked up a pair of wins over the weekend to advance to the semifinals of The Basketball Tournament.
Super 16: Team Fredette 104, Fort Wayne Champs 91
Jimmer was sensational in Team Fredette’s Super 16 win, as he poured in 41 points to help Team Fredette overcome a 15-point deficit.
Jimmer also added a team high 8 rebounds to go along with 5 assists, while Brandon Davies chipped in 11 points and 7 boards. Charles Abouo added 2 points and 2 rebounds off the bench.
Quarterfinals: Team Fredette 100, Scarlet & Gray 78
The Ohio State squad was no match for Team Fredette, as Jimmer put up a “quiet” 28 points in the blowout win.
Jimmer put former NBA veteran Jared Sullinger on skates near the end of Team Fredette’s convincing win.
Team Fredette will travel to Baltimore to play in the semifinals Thursday night on ESPN. A win would put them in the finals Friday night.
The winning team of The Basketball Tournament will take home 2 million dollars.
