Jimmer Fredette is quite the aficionado of New York high school basketball, growing up five blocks from the Glens Falls Civic Center — site of the state tournament.
As a youngster, the upstate point guard spent entire days watching the best of New York scholastic hoops.
“I think [Lincoln’s Sebastian] Telfair was the most exciting for us to watch,’’ said Fredette, the Kings’ rookie lottery pick. “He was unbelievable in high school, how fast he was, so quick. He made guys fall on a regular basis. He was amazing in high school.’’
