BYU basketball: Jimmer Fredette has stayed a part of Glens Falls
David Strader, a 1973 Glens Falls High School alumnus, will call the game for CBS College Sports. City leaders are using it as a chance to market Glens Falls through commercials to potential businesses.
But the spotlight definitely will be on Fredette, and he won't wilt under the pressure, said Mike Mender, assistant to the mayor, who has known Jimmer since he was a boy.
"He's played under a variety of situations," Mender said. If he's not hitting his shots, he's found other ways to contribute.
Regardless of whether Fredette scores five points, 50 or closer to his season average of 22.3, he will give fans a night they'll never forget — just as he has never forgotten them.
"He's a good young man ... who will always know and remember where he came from," Driscoll said. "When he's on a box of Wheaties, he will still have Glens Falls in his heart."
