However, his 20-point shooting performance against the Prep boys' varsity basketball team last Saturday was no joke. In fact, Freeman - the boys' junior varsity basketball coach - helped the alumni defeat the varsity, 82-75, during the annual Alumni Sports Day. The school also hosted girls' varsity basketball, coed water polo and boys' varsity soccer games during the sports day.
