Georgetown's Austin Freeman Named Big East Player of the Week

Austin Freeman, the preseason Big East Player of the Year, won his first Player of the Week award this season, according to Adam Zagoria.  Freeman scored 28 points on 10-13 shooting against Seton Hall to bring home the honor.  Freeman is the first Hoya to be named Big East Player of the Week during conference play - Chris Wright won the award during nonconference play.

With the Hoyas climbing back into the thick of the Big East, sitting at 3-4 before Wednesday's showdown with St. John's, it is fair to wonder if Freeman is all the way back from the shooting struggles that plagued him during Georgetown's 1-4 start.

More thoughts after The Jump.

It is no secret that for the Hoyas to succeed, Freeman needs to be a lean, mean scoring efficiency machine for the rest of the year.  Georgetown built its 2010-2011 team around the assumption that Jason Clark, Chris Wright, and Freeman would be consistently excellent.  We saw what happened when all three were off, but with an eight day layoff and signs of improvement, are we headed for a Georgetown resurgence?  Pittsburgh is the clear favorite to win the Big East, but two games separate teams 3-12 in the rankings.

Considering Kemba Walker has already solidified his hold on Big East Player of the Year, this award is a step in the right direction for Freeman to make All Big East First Team.
