Jimmer’s All-Stars is a hit

Jimmer Fredette and a group of rookies put on a show Thursday night in Provo, Utah on the campus of BYU.  Although team Fredette lost 140-126 to team Leonard, the former Cougar got an incredible send off from more than 11,000 enthusiastic fans.  As opposed to most of the other summer league events, Fredette and his Octagon management team, landed a first class facility complete with a free live streaming website and a television deal with the BYU channel.  So that means that thousands of folks all over the country got to catch a glimpse of some high flying, fun loving, no defense playing hoops. Coach Steve Fisher came out to coach his former San Diego State star Kawhi Leonard who teamed with the Bucks' first rounder Tobias Harris to lead team Leonard with 24 points apiece.  Kemba Walker chipped in 23 points, six rebounds and four assists to drive the offense from the point, while big man Vernon Macklin anchored the post with 18 points on 8/11 shooting and six rebounds.  Team Leonard took an 18 point lead into the half, outscoring team Fredette 36-19 in the second quarter and never looked back.
