Freeman made 14 three-pointers all of last season. The Aukland, New Zealand native went 3 of 5 from behind the arc Saturday and is 12 for 23 this season. The Sooners shot 10 of 25 from three against the Shockers, right at their season average of 39 percent from deep. Freeman, a junior, averaged just over nine minutes per game last season. He’s played 16 and 22 minutes in the last two games with McNeace out. “He’s done great defensively, too,” James said. “He changes the perspective when you put him in the game.” Though he’s more comfortable on the perimeter, Freeman has given OU valuable minutes at power forward and center in the last two games. “I think his confidence level was probably boosted quite a bit from this week,” Kruger said. Tournament team? Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall knows what an NCAA Tournament team looks like. He’s coached the Shockers to seven consecutive Big Dance appearances.
