Freeman disclosed his condition in an interview with The Washington Post. According to Freeman and Thompson III, the junior guard's long-term playing career should not be affected. Freeman is averaging 17 ppg for the No. 19 Hoyas, who have lost four of their last five.

A Big Relief
Cuban lefty Aroldis Chapman will make his exhibition debut in relief for the Cincinnati Reds Monday against the Kansas City Royals. The Reds landed Chapman with a six-year, $30.25 million deal in January. Manager Dusty Baker said he wants the 22-year-old Chapman to focus on getting hitters out. Chapman is competing to make a Reds' starting rotation that appears to have four spots solidified by Aaron Harang, Bronson Arroyo, Johnny Cueto and Homer Bailey, all right-handers.
