BYU's Jimmer Fredette won the John Wooden Award, beating out Kemba Walker, who won the National Championship. Maya Moore of UConn won for the women, her second straight. Fredette beat out Walker by more than 400 votes.

He received the award from Wooden's son, Jim.

"I definitely enjoyed the ride," he told reporters. "I had a great time being with my coaches and my teammates. It was the most fun I ever had in my life."

Fredette was the first player since Danny Ainge in 1981 to win the award for BYU.

Fredette broke several records in BYU, most in his last year, going on a scoring streak. He had 2,599 points that year.

"We had quite a ride with Jimmermania," said BYU coach Dave Rose.

Congrats to both players and hopefully both will continue this success into the pros!
