Austin Freeman, Georgetown
The 21st-ranked Hoyas’ game plan was simple on Saturday at No. 8 Villanova: “On offense, it was get the ball to Austin,” Georgetown guard Chris Wright said. Such a tactic seemed to work, as Freeman scored 30 points in the Hoyas’ 69-66 win over the Wildcats, Georgetown’s fourth straight win. Freeman’s third 30-point game of the year included a clutch jumper late in the game that allowed the Hoyas to hold their slim edge. “I’m glad number 15 is on our team,” Georgetown Coach John Thompson III said.
