BYU Vs. San Diego State Final Score: Jimmer Scores 43, Cougars Pull Away Late For 71-58 Win

BYU scored 71 points on Wednesday night. Jimmer Fredette scored 43 of them. If you weren’t already convinced he is the most valuable player in the nation, you can’t deny it any longer.

Even Kevin Durant knows it…


The Cougars pulled away late thanks to their supporting cast and, of course, Jimmer, to have the No. 4 San Diego State Aztecs their first loss of the season, 71-58.

Brandon Davies added 14 points in the win and the Cougars (20-1, 6-0 Mountain West Conference) remained undefeated since taking their only loss of the season December 18 to UCLA. The win was BYU’s 10th-straight

Kawhi Leonard scored 22 points with 15 rebounds to lead the Aztecs (20-1, 5-0).

San Diego State Vs. BYU: Jimmer Fredette And Kawhi Leonard Trading Scores, Aztecs Up 31-30 At Half

The match-up of Mountain West heavyweights is living up to the hype so far. With one half down, BYU’s Jimmer Fredette has 20 points and San Deigo State’s Kawhi Leonard has 13 in a 31-30 battle currently led by the Aztecs.

No other player has scored in double-digits. BYU’s Brandon Davies is closest with eight points.

The game itself has been a back-and-forth affair with no team leading by more than four points at any time.

The story is still Jimmer Fredette, though. He’s 8-of-12 from the field, including 3-for-3 from beyond the arc. Whoever wasn’t aware of Jimmer before tonight certainly is now.

However if the Cougars want to outlast the Aztecs, someone else is going to have to step up from time to time. It remains to be seen if anyone will.
