Busy Summer

Jun 13, 2011 - Posted by Kyle Chilton at 4:42 pm | Permalink

Summer is in full swing and BYU men's basketball is as busy as ever. Former associate head coach Dave Rice took the head job at UNLV and Dave Rose replaced him with Mark Pope, a national champion at Kentucky (1996) and NBA veteran. Pope comes to BYU from Wake Forest where he was an assistant to Jeff Bzdelik. Camps started last week and nearly 500 kids came out to learn from Rose's staff. Current players are working hard to get ready for next season. Coaches have been and will be recruiting to keep the current string of success rolling.

Coming up will be the 2011 NBA Draft where a Cougar is expected to be selected for the first time since Rafael Araujo was picked eighth by the Toronto Raptors in 2004. You may have heard of the expected draftee, a guy named Jimmer Fredette, a winner of every national player of the year award and the nation's leading scorer. He's worked out for Indiana, New York, Sacramento and Phoenix and has his final workout scheduled for Wednesday with Utah. With draft day 10 days away, the excitement continues to build. Thanks for the great senior season Jimmer. You'll have Cougarnation supporting you as you make the jump into the League.

Finally, Jimmer and Jackson Emery, the 2011 MWC Defensive Player of the Year, teamed up and held a camp in Lehi earlier this month. It was a great chance for kids to see how the dynamic duo trains to become the best. Here is a nice read in the Daily Herald about the camp.
