Fredette Seeks To Regain Mental Edge
Jimmer Fredette is working to better define his role after a disappointing rookie season.
"I tried to change my game," Fredette admitted, "and they (the Kings) don't want me to do that. I was an aggressive scoring point guard in college. I've got to get back to that. When I'm aggressive, it opens everything up for everyone else. It's all mental."
Fredette was the consensus national player of the year as a senior at BYU.
"Jimmer has a gift (shooting)," coach Keith Smart said. "but he has to be himself. He took 20 shots in college and made nine of them.
"We need him to do more of that. I just told him to be aggressive when he has the ball and when he doesn't have the ball. The rest of it will come."
