Technically, BYU's non-conference game against Vermont was a road game. You'd think so when you consider the fact that the Cougars had to travel well over 2,000 miles to play it.
Playing on the "road" turned out to be a huge advantage for BYU.
Jimmer Fredette scored 26 points on 9-for-19 shooting as the Cougars topped Vermont, 86-58, in front of a sellout crowd at the Glens Falls Civic Center.
Yes, Glens Falls. Home of the New York State high school basketball championships.
Fredette is a Glens Falls native. So the crowd was cleary in his favor.
"You remember all the days that you went through with your friends and family to be in this situation," the senior guard told the AP. "I really love it here and it's always been close to my heart."
Fredette led Glens Falls to the NYSPHSAA Class A state final in 2007, where it fell to Peekskill, 58-48.
