High School Coach Evaluation: While showing flashes early in his Woodside career, highlighted by a 30 point performance during his sophomore season, Quincey is primed for a breakout senior campaign. His speed and ability to play either guard spot fits perfectly into our up-tempo system on both ends of the floor. He has the ability to effectively score from all 3 levels. He is a very good catch and shoot 3 point shooter, has a great pull up and midrange game, and he can finish through contact at the rim. He has an aggressive and hard nosed style of play that will not back down from anyone on the defensive end, while also staying in constant attack mode and going at any defender while on offense. Quincey’s fearless play is evident as he rebounds incredibly well for his size. He is starting to finally receive significant interest from colleges at all different levels, and I anticipate that to only grow as he continues to step up and develop in his last go around at Woodside. – Coach Steve Jecewiz, Head Coach Woodside High School Varsity Basketball

Coach Frank says: He spent last season as the 6th or 7th man on a state semifinalist team but Quincey Freeman has now emerged as a key player, maybe the catalyst on a team that should once again find itself in the state title hunt. Quincey is an energy giver on both ends, he plays with great enthusiasm and intensity, doesn't mind doing the dirty work like getting on the floor for loose balls, getting in amongst the bigs and battling for rebounds or digging in defensively in his typical ball hawking lockdown defensive effort. Offensively his great athleticism and extreme quickness makes him a hard player to contain. Quincey can get to the rim using his explosive quickness and score or get to the line, he does a great job creating separation and knocks down the pull up jumper with good consistency. While Quincey can fill it up he is more of a pass first guard. He has excellent vision and is a sound passer even in traffic. Quincey's ability to hit the jumper or beat a defender with his quick first step makes him a serious offensive threat, especially given his high IQ, sound ball handling skills and great motor.
