BYU guard Jimmer Fredette captivated the nation during the recently completed basketball season. Now, we may get to see him in a different way.
Fredette has signed with a New York-based production company, Tupelo-Honey Productions, to film his life as he prepares for the NBA Draft on June 23, according to Street and Smith's Sports Business Journal. Fredette agreed to let the production company, owned by Real Salt Lake owner Dave Checketts, shoot more than 100 hours of footage over 30 days. The plan is "to sell online and mobile vignettes and packaged 30-minute TV shows."
Here's ESPN.com's take on Jimmer's show.
Monday night, the Mountain West Conference announced penalties stemming from a postgame brawl that broke out after BYU's 1-0 baseball victory over New Mexico Saturday at Miller Park. Neil Warner of The Provo Daily Herald, who covered the game, explains what happened. Five Cougar players and six Lobos were punished and BYU coach Vance Law received a public reprimand. Watch a portion of the brawl on YouTube.
