Lazy Part 2

Austin starts out on Dom Cheek. (Right corner)

After this, just watch how Cheek rotates out to the top of the key. There are no X and O’s. No scheme, no nothing. Just pure laziness and carelessness. No two ways about it.

Thankfully, Cheek missed and Henry Sims got the board. Again, the gift and curse of Austin Freeman is that he came up huge down the stretch with a jumper, assist and two FT’s late to ice the game.

Some will say Georgetown will have a drop off losing their best offensive players. And while they will have growing pains on that end, I would say there is some optimism for this year. There is simply no possible way they can defend any worse.

I do not mean to bash on Austin; as I go through more footage of last years game..I am bound to find mistakes on the defensive end from all. But this just pure laziness and it is inexcusable effort.


Austin Freeman’s Defense

In pictures..

Austin contests a Preston Knowles jump shot.

It’s a miss and Louisville is able to get the offensive rebound. (Defensive rebounding is a different subject)

Jason Clark went for the rebound and is able to recover to his man (Siva). Austin is…? I’m not sure, but at this point he has lost his man.

Siva drives, and Austin makes a (lazy) swipe at the ball. At this point, Austin has left his man and forces freshman, Nate Lubick, to pick between staying home on his man (Kyle Kuric) or taking away Siva’s passing lane to Knowles. Either way, these are the two best outside shooters on Louisville and only one defender is left for Georgetown on the weak-side.

Nate chooses to go out on Knowles leaving Kuric in the corner. Siva recognizes it and makes the pass to Kuric who promptly squares up and drains it.

Of course, on the next trip down court Austin Freeman makes a jump shot. Thus the gift and the curse of his game.
