Fischer surprisingly received way less minutes this past season (14.2 MPG) as compared to his freshman year (26.1 MPG). With that much of a decline in playing time, you can’t really blame Fischer from wanting to transfer.
Fischer scored 4.5 points per game this year, while shooting 39.5 percent from the field and an impressive 42.2 percent from behind the arc. His 35 threes on the season were pretty high, considering the little amount of time that he saw the court. In about 12 minutes less of playing time, Fischer did not score the ball that much less.
BYU finished this past season with a 24-12 record and had to settle for a trip to the NIT. Fischer should make an impact right off the bat, when he is actually eligible to play for the Cougars. With the way he shot the ball from behind the arc this past season, he could very easily be one of the better three-point shooters in college basketball. However, we have yet to see what kind of role Fischer will play at BYU and he won’t be taking the court anytime soon, thanks to that whole having to sit and wait a year because of transferring rule.
He definitely has the talent to do some good things in college hoops, he just needs to be given the green light more, and a bigger role for BYU would definitely help towards that. Fischer is the latest BYU Cougar and he should be a good one.
