Georgetown's Austin Freeman named preseason Big East player of the year

Georgetown senior guard Austin Freeman has been named the preseason Big East Conference player of the year and the Hoyas have been picked to finish fourth in the conference (behind Pittsburgh, Villanova and Syracuse) in the coaches' poll.

Freeman, who played at DeMatha, averaged 16.5 points per game and was the Big East leader among guards in field-goal percentage (52.5) last year. He was fourth in the league in free-throw shooting (85.6 percent).

Georgetown guard Chris Wright (St. John's High) was named to the second team.

Cindy, you are wrong about Freeman's 2009-2010 shooting percentage leading the Big East. Go to the link pasted below and you will see that Maryland native and Syracuse alum Arinze Onuaku led the Big East in field goal percentage during the 2009-2010 season.
