Jimmer Fredette is the nation’s leading scorer and one of the most exciting players in college basketball. The senior from Glens Falls, New York has become a fan favorite thanks to his ability to put up unreal point totals.

In addition to creating that song, T.J. has been able to perform at games. As I learned from ESPN reporter Diamond Leung, the elder Fredette brother was able to entertain the crowd at the Marriott Center before BYU’s huge game against San Diego State.
