OREGON CITY -- Former Clackamas Cougar center Brian Freeman is continuing winning ways as a professional basketball player in Southern France.
This past season, the 6’10” Freeman averaged 19 points and 15 rebounds while leading his team to a 21-1 league championship season. He was named MVP of the league after leading the league in rebounding and blocked shots and also leading his team in assists.
“It was really an enjoyable season,” said Freeman. “The most fun I’ve had playing basketball since Clackamas. Because we won the league, we will get to move up a classification in competition and will have most of the team back intact. I have a really nice contract offer for the next two seasons and will take it. The town, the culture, the people: all have been a great experience.”
Freeman finished his career at CCC in spectacular fashion, leading the 2007 team on a 21 game win streak and undefeated Southern Region title; he was named region and NWAACC MVP when the Cougars captured the NWAACC title (29-4) and he set the all time tournament rebounding record.
Freeman went on to play at Long Beach State University and earn his bachelor’s degree in business. This season was his third year as a professional player in Europe.
