Senior guard Ed Freeman

There's a mantra that goes with attending an NCAA Division II institution. The athletic capability is as high as most top tier programs at the next level, but the publicity that surrounds most DII programs is hardly noticeable. Most student-athletes attend the smaller, less known colleges and universities for different reasons. Although the reasons may all be different, that NCAA mantra is loud and clear... "I Chose Division II".

Wilmington University men's basketball senior guard Ed Freeman expressed his views on his reasons on choosing a Division II program and playing basketball at Wilmington, among other things, for the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference feature "Faces of the CACC".

Name: Ed Freeman
Year: Senior
Major: Business Management
Sport: Men's Basketball
Hometown: Washington, D.C.

Why did you choose to attend Wilmington University and play athletics at the Division II level? “I chose Division II because of the talent level and the competition is still high. I chose Wilmington because of the small class sizes and the one-on-one interaction I can have with professors to help academically.”

What is your favorite aspect of life at Wilmington? “I like that Wilmington is more of a family. The teachers, the coaches, and even the staff are willing to help you even if they are not directly involved with something you do. One advantage at Wilmington is the class scheduling. I can schedule classes with a great deal of flexibility, leaving me plenty of time practice and handle my school work.” 

What are your plans after you graduate? “I want to get into human resources. I also want to go back and get my Masters, and hopefully one day own my own business.”
