Carroll separated his right (non-shooting) shoulder during practice. … UMass coach Steve Lappas is adamant that junior forward Rashaun Freeman (15.4 ppg, 8.5 rpg) will be a stud this season in the A-10. … Georgetown scrimmaged at La Salle and will host Virginia Tech in a similar event. … George Washington scrimmaged Villanova over the weekend.
