Legendary basketball coach discusses the end of his career.
Besides his responsibilities as the coordinator for all the Huskies’ travel and practice schedules at home and on the road, Freeman serves as the liaison between the men’s basketball program and the university administration, as well as the campus community.
Freeman, a former UConn captain and second in the history of the program in games played (140), came back to Storrs in 2011-12 after playing 11 seasons of professional basketball in Italy, Australia, Greece, South Korea, China, Puerto Rico, Spain and Venezuela.
Freeman, a native of Springfield, Mass., was an all-state performer at Paterson (N.J.) Catholic High School before his outstanding career at UConn.
While at UConn, he was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 1999 Big East Championship and selected to the 1999 NCAA West Regional All-Tournament Team as an invaluable starter on UConn’s first National Championship team.
During Freeman’s career, the Huskies compiled an impressive 109-32 record, and made three NCAA appearances, reaching the Elite Eight in 1998 and winning the NCAA crown in 1999.
At the start of the 2016-17 season, he still ranked No. 19 on UConn’s all-time scoring list with 1,476 points, and No. 8 on the all-time rebounding list with 913. He earned his degree in 2006.
Born March 3, 1978, Freeman and his wife Nicole are the parents of a daughter, Kekoa, and two sons, Sire and Legend.
