Trey Freeman Leaves Campbell for Old Dominion

New, 2 comments

The Camels are left searching for a new point guard and a primary scoring option as Trey Freeman has decided to return to his native Virginia to play for Old Dominion.

The cupboard was pretty bare for new head coach Kevin McGheehan when he took the job at Campbell University in April and now it's virtually empty. Campbell's starting point guard, and best, player Trey Freeman has decided to leave the program for Old Dominion University.

Freeman was the Camels leader in points, minutes, assists, free throw percentage, three point field goal percentage, and steals this year as he made the All-Big South Second Team. All in all Freeman averaged 37 minutes, 14 points, 6 assists, and 3 rebounds.

The Virginia Beach native will be returning home when he joins Jeff Jones' squad at ODU. He will likely not be eligible until 2014-15 because of NCAA transfer rules.

This is a crushing blow to the Camels as they'll now rely on senior Darian Hooker who averaged 10 points last year but strayed away from ball handling duties (Ed. Note: According to sources, Hooker is also transferring, which means...) McGheehan may also have to rely on Freshman Quinton Ray, who was the Camels first signing of the new coaching administration.

McGheehan, a former Richmond assistant, is expected to install a similar offense with a Princeton signature that coach Mooney plays at Richmond.
