chase_fischer_wfAt Wake Forest he played in 62 games over two seasons and became a team captain as a sophomore (2012-13). Despite being a vocal leader on and off the court, Fischer’s playing time was diminished his sophomore season and he began to look for transfer opportunities. BYU joined Valparaiso, Florida Gulf Coast, Ball State, Ohio and Wofford in offering scholarships. Fischer signed with BYU, sitting out the 2013-14 seasons due to NCAA transfer rules.

Fischer started 27 of his 30 appearances for BYU during his Junior campaign (coming off the bench a few games following an early season concussion). During his Junior season BYU Fischer set the BYU record for 3-point field goals in a game, passing Jimmer Fredette with 10 threes against Chaminade. He is currently in the records books with the 3rd most three pointers in a season (89) behind Jackson Emery (92) and Jimmer Fredette (124).
