Georgetown's Austin Freeman Named to BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll

Feb. 1, 2010

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University junior guard Austin Freeman (Mitchellville, Md./DeMatha) was named to the BIG EAST Conference Weekly Honor Roll on Monday after his performance in a pair of games last week. It is the sixth-straight week a Georgetown player has been recognized by the league on its honor roll.

The Hoyas improved to 16-4 overall on Saturday, Jan. 30 with a thrilling 89-77 win over then-No. 8 Duke in front of a capacity crowd of more than 20,000 at Verizon Center, including President of the United States Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

Georgetown, 16-4 overall and 6-3 in the BIG EAST Conference, was ranked No. 7 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll for the second-straight week and moved up to No. 8 in the country in the ESPN/USA Today Top 25 Coaches' poll.

Freeman averaged 21.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals while shooting 58.6 percent from the floor and 60.0 percent from three-point land during a 1-1 week for Georgetown. Freeman scored 20 points, grabbed three boards and had five assists, one block and one steal in Georgetown's 89-77 win over the Blue Devils on Saturday. He connected on 8-of-11 shots from the field and 2-of-3 from three-point land.

In a loss at Syracuse earlier in the week, he scored a game-high 23 points, had six rebounds and two steals.

Freeman leads the team with 16.2 points per game and is shooting 53.4 percent from the floor.

Georgetown players have earned nine honors from the BIG EAST this season. Freeman has been named to the Honor Roll twice, while sophomore center Greg Monroe (New Orleans, La./Helen Cox) was named the league's player of the week on Dec. 14 and has been selected to the Honor Roll three times (Dec. 7, Jan. 18, Jan. 25). Junior guard Chris Wright (Bowie, Md./St. John's College HS) has been named to the Honor Roll twice (Dec. 28 and Jan. 4) and freshman guard Hollis Thompson (Los Angeles, Calif./Loyola) was named Rookie of the Week on Nov. 30.

 

 

Georgetown remains at home this week, hosting BIG EAST Conference rival South Florida at Verizon Center on Wednesday, Feb. 3. Tipoff at The Phonebooth is slated for 7 p.m. The game will be shown live on MASN, with Quint Kessenich and Dave Kaplan calling the action. Rich Chvotkin will provide the radio play-by-play on ESPN 980 AM.
