Default Joel Freeland

Here are a couple links and a recent picture of Joel Freeland:

TrueHoop reader John Donald assures me he is insane for British basketball, and has been attending games with a big pack of like-minded nuts. His dispatch from Great Britain's most recent game, against Bosnia: "The Bosnians, allegedly the weakest team in the group, had upset on their minds from the start and when they started firing in 3-pointers from everywhere, led by ex-Celtic JR Bremer. GB had a tough time holding onto the lead, but every time Bosnia got level GB would hit back through Luol Deng or Pops Mensah-Bonsu. The first half ended tied at 41, but the best was yet to come. After halftime was the first time we saw the real talent of Joel Freeland, as he and point guard Flinder Boyd set about locking down the Bosnian 3-point threat, while Deng, Bonsu and SG Nate Reinking dealt with the offense. The result was a 15-0 run that basically sealed the game, with GB eventually winning 82-74 after the Bosnians got a couple of garbage-time buckets. Freeland's stats of 19 minutes, five points, six rebounds, three assists and one steal may not jump out at you (especially alongside Deng's 29/8/5 or Mensah-Bonsu's 15/11 and three blocks), but he did a great job of shutting down the Bosnian big men in the second half, after they had been drifting outside (primarily to avoid Mensah-Bonsu's interior defence) and bombing away in the 1st. Oh and he also had a rather impressive dunk, which gives you some idea of the size of him now!"

FYI - only the first line of this posting, "Here are a couple links and a recent picture of Joel Freeland:" is mine - the rest is cut and paste.
