The nation’s leading scorer in college basketball grabs this week’s Eastbay Player of the Week honors. BYU guard Jimmer Fredette has carried the Cougars through their first two games of the tournament by raising the bar on his already impressive season by scoring average of 28.8 points per game.

Fredette scored 32 points in BYU’s first NCAA Tournament game against Wofford in which the Cougars won 74-66. He then followed it up with a 34-point performance in their 89-67 blowout of Gonzaga. Although the senior from Glen Falls, New York is known for his seemingly unstoppable ability to score, he’s been even more of a floor general than ever before in the NCAA Tournament, dishing out six assists against Wofford and seven assists against Gonzaga.

Will this year’s leading regular season scorer and NCAA Tournament leading scorer get the Cougars to the Final Four?
