Last night I wasn’t sure what to watch. I knew the San Diego State-BYU game would be entertaining, but I wasn’t sure how long I’d be able to stick with it, plus it didn’t start until 10 p.m. here. Luckily, women’s tennis kept me interested for once.
Watching 20-year-old Danish sensation Caroline Wozniacki lose in the semifinals of the Australian Open kept me busy for a while. And no, it’s not because she’s easy on the eyes. Frankly, it’s because I couldn’t believe how short her dress was. If you can even call it a dress.
If that thing were any shorter she could have pulled it off as a long t-shirt. Trust me, when it comes to fashion, I’m the last guy to ask about anything, but I mean, wow. I’m not complaining mind you, it just kind of shocked me a bit. After all, this was the ridiculously uptight world of professional tennis. This has been an issue before with Wozniacki. Maybe she is just trying to distract her opponents, but I mean this isn’t the LPGA, right?
Then I had to start flipping back and forth between Wozniacki’s continuous flashing of the crowd, to Jimmer Fredette’s ridiculous 43 point effort against No. 4 San Diego State in No. 9 BYU’s 71-58 upset win.
Fredette, much like Wozniacki’s outfit, was awesome. The dude brought it in the biggest game of his career. He hit shots from everywhere. His patented hangers in the lane were on point, and he hit 5-of-8 from 3-point range. He was 14-of-24 from the field and 10-of-11 from the free throw line on the night and those 43 point include a cold spell he hit towards the end of the second half. Fredette scored BYU’s final 15 points of the first half and had 20 at the break. After a run at the beginning of the second half he had 34 with 12:35 left. It was an insane performance.
It was one of those instant classic things where you have to have seen it to understand what really happened. The fact that no one was even mentioning the fact that SDSU’s Kawhi Leonard finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds tells you how great Fredette was.
Thanks to him and Ms. Wozniacki’s fashion choices, I thoroughly enjoyed my Wednesday night.
