For the past few weeks, the most frequent question in my inbox goes something like this: "Why isn't BYU's Jimmer Fredette ranked higher on your Big Board?"

It's a good question. If you're a college basketball fan and don't know who Fredette is, you're missing something special. He's having a scintillating senior season, leading the NCAA in scoring with a 26. 1 ppg average while shooting 48 percent from the field and 41 percent from 3. He averages 4.4 assists per game, 3.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
