Baylor's Freeman to miss 6-7 weeks with hand injury
Baylor freshman guard Allerik Freeman will likely miss the start of the 2013-14 season.
The 6-3, 205-pound shooting guard Freeman was a consensus Top 100 recruit coming of high school (Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada) and is expected to immediately enhance Baylor's perimeter scoring.
The timetable for the injury casts doubt on Freeman's availability for an opening stretch including games against Colorado (Nov. 8), South Carolina (Nov. 12), Louisiana-Lafayette (Nov. 17) and Charleston Southern (Nov. 20). The Bears subsequently open the Maui Invitational on Nov. 25, facing Chaminade in the first round.
The Bears (23-14, 9-9 in Big 12 in 2012-13) were picked a unanimous third in the Big 12 preseason predictions by all of CBSSports.com's experts, behind Kansas and Oklahoma State.
