With Jazz star Deron Williams watching on the front row at the sold-out Marriott Center, Fredette had scored only eight points with less than 10 minutes remaining in the contest. Then Fredette exploded for 12 consecutive points to break a 48-48 tie and put the Cougars up, 60-48.
Fredette finished with a game-high 23 points while junior Charles Abouo poured in 22 points, including 17 in the first-half.
Utah's Will Clyburn scored 16 and Chris Kupets chipped in 14 off the bench.
