BYU basketball: Could Nick Emery be the next Jimmer?

NBCsports.com asks that question after Emery's performance last weekend at the Hoop Group Jamfest in Philadelphia.

Emery, the younger brother of former Cougar star Jackson Emery — who played in the same backcourt with Fredette — scored 34 points, including seven 3-pointers, and had 12 rebounds in the first game of the Jamfest last Friday.

Nick Emery will be a senior next season, then plans on enrolling at BYU. He downplayed comparisons to Fredette, but clearly loves Fredette's game.

“I like the way Jimmer plays," he said. "I make my game like his. He’s crafty. I like that style and I mimick that a lot.”
