Austin Freeman Injury Not Enough To Take Him Out Against Marquette

It was not a pleasant sight if you are a Georgetown Hoyas fan. In the first half against Marquette, senior guard Austin Freeman fought for a loose ball, and looked to suffer an ankle injury. He was helped off the court, as he was walkign very gingerly into the locker room, with his status for the rest of the game very much in doubt.

But at the start of the second half, Freeman came jogging out of the tunnel, indicating he was good to go. After waiting a few minutes into the second half, Freeman came back onto the court to a standing ovation from the Hoya faithful. 

It was clear that simply having Freeman back on the court was a lift for both the home crowd and the team itself. But Freeman provided his team with a tangible boost as well. He added 8 points during a critical Hoya run in the second half that put Georgetown ahead for good to clinch their eighth straight conference win.

When asked about Freeman's status after the game, coach John Thompson III said it was a simply a 'sprained ankle', and that Freeman should be fine for their upcoming matchup against Connecticut.
