REMINDER: Austin & Chris on the Duece tonight

Freeman and Wright square off against each other in the 2007 Jordan Brand All-American Classic tonight at 9:00 p.m. on ESPN2. Hopefully, they will get some serious burn and become comfortable with playing in MSG--the site of many more Hoya wins in the next four years!
Here are their write-ups from the Jordan website:

Height: 6-1 · Weight: 190 · Position: Point Guard · St. John’s College Prep· Washington, DC · Hometown: Washington DC · College: Georgetown

Chris Wright has the entire package; perimeter stroke, toughness, versatility, academics, and compactly built. Wright plays low to the ground with the ball with his greatest strength being is ability to score. He uses his quickness and strength on the defensive side of the ball to amount numerous steals. Wright is a strong defender who is able to keep his man out of the lane and can apply a nasty full-court press. Wright is an excellent teammate who goes about his business and loves to play the game. His range is deep and he's confident with both his outside and mid-range jumper. For all his physical attributes, what really gives Wright his edge is his mental toughness. This season he has led St. John’s to a 26-8 record and a No. 4 ranking in the Washington DC Metropolitan area.

Height: 6-4 · Weight: 185 · Position: Wing Guard · DeMatha Catholic High School · Hyattsville, MD · Hometown: Washington, D.C · College: Georgetown

Nicknamed “A Free” Austin Freeman has deceptive explosiveness, a pure shooting stroke and point guard handles. He is a strong wing player that is capable of doing a lot of things on the court. Freeman can score in bunches, has tons of composure and his body gets him places inside. He has outstanding talent and is a big time producer, even with his left hand. He also has a patented hop back three-pointer that is unstoppable. As good as Freeman is offensively, he distributes the ball just as well. He has excellent body control and enjoys shooting the mid-range pull up jumper. Freeman led DeMatha to a 28-6 record this season, a No. 1 ranking in the Washington Post and a WCAC title. He will attend Georgetown University in the fall with fellow Jordan All-American Chris Wright.
