    Fredette is unbelievable. After losing to New Mexico the second time during the regular season, I thought things were going to be different for them in the NCAA tournament seedings. If they beat San Diego State or whoever else they are playing in their conference championship tomorrow night, do they have a shot at a #1. I'm thinking it will be tough, but you never know.....

    At least NM can say they slowed him down a bit in the 2nd half since he had 33 in the first half.

    It's going to be tough for BYU to get a #1 seed. I'm almost 100 percent certain that they won't. The winner of the Duke/North Carolina game(if goes as planned) should grab the last #1 seed. As for the game, it was just Jimmer time.

    If the Tarheels lose to Clemson and Duke would happen to lose tonight or in the ACC championship game, things could get interesting. However, I believe that it would be a tall order for both to lose.

    I know he doesn't always put up great assist numbers but does Jimmer remind any of the rest of you guys of Steve Nash? Every time I see him dribble into a deep three pointer I think his shot looks just like Nash's. I still think he could end up being a pretty decent NBA player if given the time.

    I see that. His ability to shoot off balance is impressive, very similar to Nash. I don't think Jimmer can be an all-league player in the NBA and he can't be required to be the man for an NBA team, but I can't help but think he could stick somewhere and be a good contributor.

    I'm kind of torn on him. I think he could be another Nash in a few years, but I would guess that its more likely that he's an average, contributing player in the league and there is nothing wrong with that. I think he could become a JJ Redick, who I think is actually really underrated in the league, because he seems like a bust because he was drafted so high. Of course his athleticism could completely run him out of the league after a few years. He's a tough one to call IMO, but I like his guile and I think that will help him out alot.

    I can see the Nash comparison and I think he's better off the dribble than JJ, the kid is a treat to watch for sure. I know you aren't suppose to jump while making passes but man he's pretty good at doing it.
