Jimmer Fredette named Asia-Basket’s Asia Player of the Month

Former BYU guard and 2011 National Player of the Year, Jimmer Fredette has been named the Asia-Basket Asia Player of the Month for November after carrying the Shanghai Sharks to the top of the CBA standings.

The current leading scorer in the league, Fredette led the Sharks to a 10-1 record in November while averaging 38 points while shooting 40.7 percent from 3-point range and 91.2 percent from the free-throw line to go along with 8.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists.

One of his best efforts came in the huge win over now second place Guangdong when he dropped a professional career-high 51 points on 18 for 31 shooting from the floor, including 9 for 17 from beyond the arc while adding 10 rebounds, six assists and a pair of steals in 44 minutes.

Since his award-winning month, he has improved on his league-leading scoring average thanks to back-to-back 40+ point performances in hard-fought wins.

Fredette and the Sharks will be back on the floor on Wednesday as they face off against Stephon Marbury and the Beijing Ducks.
