Fredette scores 49 against Arizona

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ken Pomeroy @ 12:51 am

Not unrelated to my previous post, BYU won 99-69 at Arizona Monday night which is only going to further damage the Pac-10’s reputation. It was the worst defeat ever suffered by the Wildcats in the McKale Center. In addition, the Cougars’ Jimmer Fredette tied the building record with 49 points. At least that’s the best I can tell in doing a few minutes of research. The player he tied? Brandon Jennings, who did it while he was in high school and whose decision to play a season in Europe was one of the first in an unfortunate chain of events that has culminated in the Wildcats’ current situation. At any rate, the 49 is a record by a collegian in the building (breaking a 45-point effort by Providence’s Eric Murdock in 1990) and also a BYU record.
