Jimmer Fredette Earns All-American Honors, Another Player Of The Year Award

The awards keep coming in for Jimmer Fredette as he won the 2011 Oscar Robertson Player of the Year Award which is given out by from the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. Other player of the year awards that Fredette has won are from CBS Sports, Sports Illustrated, the Sporting News, and Basketball Times.

Fredette was also named as an unanimous first-team pick from the Associated Press. He earned 64 of 65 votes, not to be that guy but who was the one AP writer that did not vote for Fredette. The last time BYU had an All-American was Danny Ainge who won the award back in 1981 when he led the Cougars to the Elite Eight.

The rest of the All-American team consisted of UConn's Kemba Walker, Duke's Nolan Smith, Purdue's JuJuan Johnson and Ohio State's Jared Sullinger.
