According to Tarik El-Bashir, Austin Freeman has been named the Big East's Preseason Player Of the Year.
G'town senior Austin Freeman named preseason BIG EAST player of the year. Hoyas picked fourth in coaches poll behind Pitt, 'Nova and 'Cuse.
Freeman averaged 16.5 points per game last year even while being diagnosed with Diabetes. Now that Greg Monroe has moved on to the NBA, Freeman should be the unquestioned focus of the Hoyas' attack.
According to Craig Stouffer Freeman joins Roy Hibbert, Alonzo Mourning and Patrick Ewing as Georgetown players to earn this distinction.
