He came. He shot. He scored. Loved it!

What a game! I loved watching it. Some of the other players looked a little nervous but Jimmer was ready. Jimmer is always ready! Go Cougars!

Chuck Norris couldn't stop Jimmer Fredette!

Great article, thanks.

Jimmer shoots his way into legendary status.

Much like LeBron during his Decision, Twitter timelines slowed to a crawl as users tossed out 140 characters of love, disbelief and sheer delight. He turned everyone into Fredette fans:

Arizonas Derrick Williams: "The only way your stopping Jimmer is when the game ends."

Ohio States Jared Sullinger: "Yooo Jimmer is going off right now. Pure scorer."

Washingtons John Wall: "Jimmer Fredette is cold!

Kevin Durant (who had 47 himself on Wednesday) gushed about Fredette: "Jimmer is the best scorer in the world!!"

One of the greatest games I have ever been to.

The crowd, the teams, the win, the national attention, the Jimmer show.

More to come ...

Wow amazing game!!! I may be overly optimistic but I am very excited about this team for various reasons.

1. Jimer out did himself again. This boy is amazing.
He may well be one of the best scorers of all time. He will probably be picked in the top five of the NBA draft and if he is not picked first it will be due to the bias most of the nation has against my Cougs.

Considering the NBA games last much longer than a College game, I can see him scoring in the 30's each game as a Pro. It was just classic at the end of the game when everyone chanted "you got Jimered!!!" (I think pretty creative and intelligent fans!!!)

2. All of the other players on the Cougs would be super stars on any other major college team. We are very lucky to have a great group.

3. Looks like we will be getting a number one seat. If we play our cards right we may not only have a College Football Championship.

Thanks for the memories.

Go Cougs!!!

I have been reading all the comments from this posting and the prior articles written and I like a good spirited debtate between Utah fans and BYU fans...What I don't get is this...BYU is a legitimate top 10 team, Jimmer Fredette is probably a lottery pick at this point and Utah fans still act like BYU is overhyped..First, Leonard for SDSU played incredible..He may have been sick before, but he didn't play like it..Second, go read the "Tweets" from players like Kevin Durant, John Wall, and prior players Fredette has played against and see they hype they are giving him...
While I love to read comments from people like Chris B and other Utah fans who hate BYU, pick a year to do this where they are actually overrated like Utah football was this year! Utah fans are still feeling the 47 points Jimmer dropped on you at home..
Over and out!

Jimmer is phenomenal, but the rest of the team was terrible when it came to offense. It seemed like no one could shoot the ball besides Jimmer. That won't win tournaments. It's always nice to have someone who can drop 40+ points on the #4 team in the nation, but if the cougs expect to do anything after the regular season, the rest of the team better get on board, and start lighting it up. Teams are going to figure how to frustrate Jimmer (UCLA already did). Great defense Cougs!

We were so happy to have been there. The atmosphere at this game was electric! I loved the chant, "You got Jimmered!" at the end. All 22,700 in attendance joined to add to the sweetness of this win. Stunning, to say the least! Thanks to Dave Rose and BYU's great coaches and players for this outstanding event and win.

Thanks, Dick Harmon, for another colorful, masterful article on BYU basketball and Jimmermania.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, there is a lot of season left. Regardless of the end however this season has been an excellent one.

Harmon says, "In the past three Aztec games, Fredette has scored 33, 26 and 43. That's an average of 34 points per game. And BYU won. That is simply insane. SDSU plays defense, manly defense."

My father (a professional baseball manager) used to say, "The best defense is a great offense" (not original with him, I'm sure).

Jimmer proves the point.

And it stands to reason: Offense is proactive and defense by definition is reactive.

Defense waits till the game comes to it; offense takes what it wants.

Way to go Jimmer and the Cougars!

P.S. Jerry Sloan will NEVER win an NBA championship.

I bet if he went by his real first name (James), the national spotlight would not be quite as intense as it is now.

Face it, there is something cool about the way "Jimmer" rolls off the tongue!

Jimmered!

CTguy, UCLA didn't frsutrate Jimmer, Creighton did that (held him to 15 points). Regardless, I agree that the rest of the team needs to improve to a point. Davies and Anderson were fantastic down low. Emery could not make a shot...but his defense of Gay made up for that. I think this group definitely rivals the glory years of the 80's or the U's glory years of the 90's.

This is the first game the team has not shot well in support of Jimmer. They will bounce back just fine!

Come in Dick. I thought atleast you could read between the lines on Durant's tweet!

He had just put up 47 in an NBA game! It was a total smack in the face! LOL

Again, that being said, I have to give the kid his due. He is an amazing college scorer. 0 assists (which means none of his team mates were helping him out), 4 turnovers and he rolled up SDSU.

Enjoy it while you have this kid cougs.

Comment above about the rest of the team's offense -- excluding Davies, I think, who certainly did his part -- is true. But their team defense was phenomenal. They completely stifled SDSU: below season average in rebounds and 15 points below their average points per game! Ouch! Agreed, others beside Jimmer need to score, but you can't fault the cougs defense.
