Blue roundup: Hartsock's little brother coming up big

Senior forward Noah Hartsock, a native of Bartlesville, Okla., is BYU's leading scorer. Back in Bartlesville, his younger brother, Jakob, is lighting up the scoreboard.

Jakob Hartsock poured in 31 points for Bartlesville High, knocking down 4-of-5 3-pointers on Tuesday in a game that was attended by BYU head coach Dave Rose, according to the Tulsa World. Noah Hartsock was the Tulsa World's 2006 state player of the year.

Watch Jakob Hartsock's highlights from a recent scrimmage. His style of play bears an uncanny resemblance to his brother's. Perhaps there is another Hartsock in the Cougars' future.

Former BYU star Jimmer Fredette started his second NBA game on Wednesday for the Sacramento Kings. The Kings won, but Fredette is going through a slump.

"Jimmer Fredette started in place of Marcus Thornton again, but struggled in 27 minutes of play," reports Cowbell Kingdom. "The heralded rookie scored 10 points, but shot only 2-for-7 from the field, finished with zero assists and turned the ball over twice. He had a nice moment in the third quarter, pulling up on a fast-break and burying a three, but he does not look comfortable on the court and it’s pretty obvious his teammates can sense it."
