Jimmer mania

Wednesday night will be one of the most unique non-conference basketball game in recent memory.

Brigham Young University will take on the University of Vermont at the Glens Falls Civic Center.

The game will be aired nationally on CBS College Sports.

This game will take place for one reason - Jimmer Fredette.

The Cougars senior guard grew up in Glens Falls and this game will be called Hometown Classic.

Fredette was selected as a preseason All-American and has helped BYU reach the NCAA Tournament last season and defeat Florida in double overtime.

Fredette also is Section II's all-time leading scorer.
Fredette is in the Top 10 of BYU's all-time scoring list.

The 2006-07 Glens Falls Indians team went 25-2 and reached the Class A New York State title game, which was played in the Glens Falls Civic Center.
