Jimmer Fredette, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Glen Falls High School in Glen Falls, N.Y., has been a big part of the Albany City Rocks AAU program over the past couple of years. So it's no surprise that Albany City Rocks program director Jim Hart has plenty to say about this point-producing guard.
Fredette, who is committed to BYU, has had some great AAU tournaments for the Albany City Rocks. "He could always shoot the basketball," Hart said. "As his body matured, he became more consistent."
Jimmer is having a great senior year too, according to Hart, who monitors all of his players. "He had a Reggie Miller moment this season," said Hart. "He scored seven points in seven seconds to help win a game."
Hart is making the comparison to what Miller, then an Indiana Pacer, did to the New York Knicks. Miller scorched the Knicks with several points in the final seconds of a game to stun the New York NBA team.
"He seems to get 30 or more points every game," Hart said. "He's consistent. He has a great stroke. He's going to be a very good college player."
If Fredette can make himself a consistent threat by taking his dribble to the rim, he should be able to produce plenty of points on the college level. "He works hard," Hart said. "He improved every year we had him."
