The Glens Falls native showed his scoring prowess once again yesterday, pouring in 75 points for the Shanghai Sharks in a 137-136 defeat to the Beikong Fly Dragons in a Chinese Basketball Association contest.

Jimmer went for 62 in the second half including an astonishing 40 points in the final period.  He shot 24 of 34 from the floor including 7 of 10 from deep, and 20 of 21 from the free throw line.  Fredette scored with :07 remaining on an acrobatic drive giving the Sharks the lead before the Dragons won it at the buzzer.
