Career highlights and awards

Zambolist "Zam" Fredrick, Sr. (born August 17, 1959) is a retired American professional basketball player. He spent his professional career playing in Italy from 1981 to 1987 after graduating college from the University of South Carolina in 1981. Although Fredrick played in Europe, he is best known in the United States for leading NCAA Division I in scoring as a senior in 1980–81 with a 28.9 points per game average.

Fredrick grew up in South Carolina. He played college basketball at USC under head coaches Frank McGuire and Bill Foster between 1977 and 1981. The 781 total points he scored during his senior season is second all-time in school history to Grady Wallace's 906, who, coincidentally, also led the nation in scoring in 1956–57.

Despite being selected by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1981 NBA Draft (third round, 51st overall), Fredrick never played in the league. After his decade-long professional career in Europe, he came back and coached high school basketball at Calhoun County High School (CCHS) in St. Matthews, South Carolina. During one seven-year stretch, Fredrick led CCHS to five state championships and a winning streak of 81 games. His son, Zam Fredrick, Jr., was a member of three of those. His son also scored a South Carolina state record 3,481 points and had played on the varsity team since 8th grade. Fredrick, Sr. is still a coach at CCHS to this day.
