March 28 (Bloomberg) -- Brigham Young University senior guard Jimmer Fredette was named college basketball’s National Player of the Year after leading the country in scoring.

Notre Dame’s Mike Brey won the Henry Iba Award as the national coach of the year, the U.S. Basketball Writers Association said in a statement.

With men’s college basketball’s semifinals and final still to be completed April 2 and April 4, Fredette leads the nation at 28.9 points per game. He averaged 32.7 points in three National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament contests before the Cougars were beaten by the University of Florida in overtime of the regional semifinal round.

Fredette won the Oscar Robertson Trophy, named for the Hall of Fame basketball player, in voting by the entire membership of the USBWA, which consists of more than 900 journalists.
