CBKB: Georgetown’s leading scorer Freeman has diabetes

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Georgetown’s leading scorer Austin Freeman has been diagnosed with diabetes. His status for the team’s upcoming games is uncertain.

Freeman disclosed his condition in an interview with The Washington Post. He and coach John Thompson III told the Post that the junior guard’s long-term playing career should not be affected, but Thompson wouldn’t say whether Freeman will be able to play in Saturday’s regular season finale against Cincinnati or in next week’s Big East tournament.
Freeman missed Monday night’s loss to West Virginia and was limited in Saturday’s loss to Notre Dame. He was thought to have a stomach virus.
Freeman is averaging 17 points per game for the No. 19 Hoyas, who have lost four of their last five.
