Tony Freeland to Transfer From DePaul
Jan. 19, 2012
CHICAGO – Junior forward Tony Freeland has decided to transfer from DePaul due to a family illness in Los Angeles. Freeland played in 57 games for the Blue Demons over two seasons and has been sidelined for the 2011-12 campaign following shoulder surgery on Nov. 2.
“We support his decision to be closer to home and near his family,” said head coach Oliver Purnell.
The Los Angeles native made 15 career starts in his 57 games and registered 15 games in double-figures. He averaged 6.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game over his two seasons that included 9.6 scoring and 5.0 rebounding averages during his sophomore season.
“I’m going home to help my ill grandmother,” said Freeland. “I want to finish school and the only way to pay for it is to play basketball at another institution.”
