Scouting Report on Austin Freemanby Jerry Meyer - 06/19/2006
Freeman has deceptive explosiveness, a pure shooting stroke and point guard handles. With impeccable body control, Freeman is a master at improvising in the mid-range and making difficult finishes, even with his left hand. He also has a patented hop back three-pointer. As good as Freeman is offensively, the one concern about his game is his lateral quickness defensively.
