Kemba Walker couldn’t hold off Jimmer Mania any longer.
According to the latest poll results conducted by AnnArbor.com’s Michael Rothstein, Jimmer Fredette overtook Connecticut’s guard in the National Player of the Year race,
Fredette was the only player named on all 590 ballots submitted, and he took 37 first-place votes, more than twice as many as Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger, who’s in second. (A scoring slump has landed Walker in third.)
Might be tough to displace Fredette atop this list, too.
What do you think?
True Story: Fredette was “held” to 25 points in the Cougars’ 90-52 win against Air Force, but as a cultural phenomenon he’s gonna be tough to beat. Jimmer is currently the nation’s leading scorer (27.2 points per game) – can you believe that 25 points per game was considered an “off night” for him?
