Florida knows BYU is more than just Fredette

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Just like everyone else in college basketball, Florida is quite familiar with Jimmer-mania.

Jimmer Fredette's production - 28.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.3
assists per game - is impossible to ignore. If anything, BYU's
senior guard is getting stronger, scoring at least 30 points in six
of his last seven games.

But second-seeded Florida doesn't buy that third-seeded BYU will
be a one-man team when they meet in the NCAA Tournament regional semifinals Thursday night in New Orleans.

The Gators know from experience.

BYU beat Florida 99-92 in double overtime in the first round of
the NCAA Tournament last season. Fredette scored 37 points, yet
what really hurt was a career game from reserve guard Michael Loyd
Jr., who poured in 26 points.
