GEORGETOWN MEN’S BASKETBALL

WELCOME TO GEORGETOWn Combining the tradition of being the oldest Catholic institution of higher learning in the United States with an awareness of ever-changing educational needs, Georgetown University continues to challenge the minds of young men and women eager to learn. Founded in 1789 as Georgetown College, a small gathering of 12 students and a handful of professors, it has grown into a major international university that includes four undergraduate schools, respected graduate programs, a law school and a medical school. Georgetown’s 104-acre Main and Medical Center campus, located in a historic neighborhood of our nation’s capital and overlooking the Potomac River, houses 64 buildings including a hospital and hotel, athletic fields and student residences that can accommodate more than 6,000 students. Ranked among the nation’s most distinguished institutions of higher learning, the success of the University’s philosophy and endeavors is reflected in its enrollment and applicant pool. Its student

body, one of the most geographically diverse in the country, consists of individuals from all 50 states and 132 foreign countries, while only 21 percent of its applicants for the freshman class of 2011 were accepted. In the classroom, the University offers state-ofthe-art facilities, while holding less than an 8-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio. Today more than 13,000 students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs at Georgetown University, served by more than 1,200 full time and 450 part time faculty. 700 full-time and 350 part-time professors teach undergraduates on the main campus. Distinguished professors include former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former Director of the CIA George Tenet, best-selling author and linguist Deborah Tannen, former National Security Advisor Anthony Lake, and former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar. Recent visiting faculty include Grammy-winner Bobby McFerrin and acclaimed author Mario Vargas Llosa.

University Mission Statement Georgetown is a Catholic and Jesuit, student-centered research university. Established in 1789 in the spirit of the new republic, the University was founded on the principle that serious and sustained discourse among people of different faiths, cultures, and beliefs promotes intellectual, ethical and spiritual understanding. We embody this principle in the diversity of our students, faculty and staff, our commitment to justice and the common good, our intellectual openness and our international character. 2

An academic community dedicated to creating and communicating knowledge, Georgetown provides excellent undergraduate, graduate and professional education in the Jesuit tradition for the glory of God and the well-being of humankind. Georgetown educates women and men to be reflective lifelong learners, to be responsible and active participants in civic life, and to live generously in service to others.

GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY Athletics at Georgetown

Georgetown University’s varsity athletics programs are a major component of the undergraduate experience. Georgetown offers 29 varsity sports that compete at the Division I level, most of them in the nationally-recognized BIG EAST Conference. Georgetown’s 800-plus student-athletes are a major portion of the University’s enrollment, with more than one of every 10 undergraduates, competing on a team. Athletics at Georgetown enjoys a rich history dating back to the first documented athletic contest, a baseball game on May 10, 1870. Georgetown’s tradition includes a total of 17 team and 18 individual national championships, while boasting numerous Olympians, National Players of the Year and AllAmericans. The success continued for Georgetown athletics during the 2008-09 academic year. Twenty-seven student-athletes earned All-America honors, while an additional 65 earned all-conference recognition, including five major conference award winners, and 269 received academic acknowledgement. Highlights from this year include a regular season championship, NCAA Tournament berths and numerous individual honors. The women’s lacrosse squad had an outstanding year winning the regular season championship, advancing to the BIG EAST Tournament championship game and earning an at-large NCAA bid. Seven Hoyas were named All-BIG EAST and the team won three major awards including BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year for Head Coach Ricky Fried and his assistants. The track & field program had another strong season with the women finishing second at the Indoor BIG EAST Championship and the men placing third at the outdoor conference meet. Georgetown graduate student Maggie Infeld won the 1,500 meters and anchored the winning 4x800 meter relay team. Overall, the program had 16 All-Americans. This followed a successful fall that saw Andrew Bumbalough capture the BIG EAST Cross Country title. Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams qualified for the postseason. The men received a bid to the NIT led by BIG EAST Rookie of the Year Greg Monroe. The women advanced to the WNIT for the first time since 2003 playing late into March eventually falling in the tournament quarterfinals. Senior Karee Houlette was an All-BIG EAST performer. The men’s and women’s soccer squads both made the BIG EAST Tournament after successful seasons. After receiving a first-round bye, the women hosted their first BIG EAST quarterfinal in the program’s history. On the water, sophomore Charlie Buckingham was awarded the Everett B. Morris Trophy which

goes to the College Sailor of the Year. It marked the second year in a row a Hoya had received the honor and the third recognition in four years. A total of six GU sailors were named All-American following the close of the season. Also, women’s rowing head coach Glenn Putyrae and his staff were named the BIG EAST Rowing Coaching Staff of the Year after the Hoyas finished fourth at the BIG EAST Championships. Two famous firsts also occurred during the 200809 season as the Georgetown softball team set off on its maiden voyage in BIG EAST play, narrowly missing the conference tournament. The Georgetown women’s golf team also hosted the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship for the first time. The event was held at the Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Md., during the month of May.

History

For more than 215 years, Georgetown University has overlooked the banks of the Potomac River. Georgetown owes its existence to Father John Carroll, whose desire for an academy to educate the Catholic youth of the nation that gave root to the founding of Georgetown. Construction began on the first building in 1788, but the first student, William Gaston, arrived from North Carolina in 1791 before it was even completed. Two years later, Charles and George Dinnies, brothers from New York, were awarded the degree of Bachelor of Arts and became the College’s first graduates. By 1871, Georgetown had expanded to include two professional schools: medicine and law, and gradually moved towards establishing itself as a university. During this time, the school was guided by the efforts of Patrick F. Healy, S.J., who is often referred to as its second founder. The son of an Irish immigrant and a former slave, Father Healy became the first African-American to earn a Ph.D. and the first to head a predominantly white university. President from 1874 until 1882, he is credited with guiding Georgetown from a small liberal arts college to a modern university. Women began to study at Georgetown when the School of Nursing was founded in 1903. Their enrollment increased gradually through the first part of the century and by 1952 was admitted to all schools but the College of Arts and Sciences. At the end of the 1960’s, the University became fully coeducational, as women were admitted to the college. The 1980’s were highlighted by intense growth and prosperity through the leadership of its 46th President Timothy S. Healy, S.J. Its academic reputation improved, its endowment increased five-fold, minority enrollment grew and a host of building were constructed including Yates Field House, the Intercultural Center and the Leavey Center.

Diversity

Georgetown University’s commitment to diversity is manifested in its student body -- which includes people of many different ethnic and religious backgrounds -- and in its commitment to the recruitment of outstanding women and minorities to join its community of faculty and staff. Georgetown is an equal opportunity employer, and makes a concerted effort to achieve ethnic and gender diversity throughout its workforce. The January 2003 issue of Black Enterprise magazine ranked Georgetown third after Stanford and Columbia among non-historically black colleges and universities as a place where African American students feel that their aspirations are supported. In November 2003, the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education ranked Georgetown 19th out of the top 50 highest academically ranked universities in the nation for its percentage of black students. Georgetown University has long been a leader among America’s most selective institutions in promoting a diverse student body. Nearly 22 percent of Georgetown’s undergraduate population is from a minority ethnic background; the breakdown is as follows: African American, 6.7 percent; Asian American, 9.1 percent; Hispanic, 5.8 percent; and Native American, less than one percent.

Volunteerism & Service

At Georgetown, community service and volunteerism have long been defining characteristics of students’ education and the University’s mission. Georgetown embraces and lives out the Catholic, Jesuit ideal of service in its undergraduate, graduate, law and medical schools. Georgetown currently sponsors more than 100 community service initiatives that involve countless students, faculty, staff and alumni, and range from teaching children to offering pro bono legal services and providing health care for the medically underserved. As a Catholic, Jesuit university, Georgetown undergraduates have historically chosen service careers in high numbers after graduation; in 2003, according to a voluntary survey of graduating seniors, more than 139 chose jobs in the public sector -- non-profit institutions, volunteer service, education, government service, Jesuit Volunteer Corps and other organizations in addition to the Peace Corps. In 2005, Georgetown University produced the second highest number of Peace Corps volunteers among all private universities in the country, with 67 Georgetown alumni joining the Peace Corps.

The $1 billion capital campaign benefited Georgetown’s Main, Medical, and Law Center campuses to secure endowment funds for curriculum and faculty support, increase student financial aid, and build and renovate facilities. In 2002-2003, Dr. DeGioia oversaw the largest expansion of campus facilities, with the Southwest Quadrangle - a one million square-foot complex of student housing; study, seminar and music rooms; and a new Jesuit Community - at the forefront. Dr. DeGioia addresses broader issues in higher education as a board member of the American Council on Education, the Association of American Colleges and Universities, and the Campus Compact, and as an executive committee member of the Council on Competitiveness.

To prepare young people for leadership roles in the global community, Dr. DeGioia has expanded opportunities for intercultural and interreligious dialogue, welcomed world

He is a member of the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO and Chair of its Education Committee and he represents Georgetown at the World Economic Forum and on the Council on Foreign Relations. Dr. DeGioia has enhanced Georgetown’s relationship with the many political, cultural, corporate, and economic resources of Washington, D.C. He serves on the Greater Washington Board of Trade and the Federal City Council. Dr. DeGioia is also a strong supporter of Georgetown’s social justice initiatives that seek to improve opportunities for Washington’s underserved neighborhoods. As the first lay president of a Jesuit university, Dr. DeGioia places special emphasis on sustaining and strengthening Georgetown’s Catholic and Jesuit identity and its responsibility to serve as a voice and an instrument for justice. He has also been a strong advocate for inter-religious dialogue. He is a member of the Order of Malta, a lay religious order of the Roman Catholic Church dedicated to serving the sick and the poor. Dr. DeGioia is a Professorial Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy. He earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Georgetown University in 1979 and his PhD in Philosophy from the University in 1995. He has most recently taught “Ethics and Global Development,” “Human Rights: A Culture in Crisis,” and a seminar on “Ways of Knowing.” Prior to his appointment as president, Dr. DeGioia held a variety of senior administrative positions at Georgetown, including senior vice president, responsible for universitywide operations, and dean of student affairs. In 2004, he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Academia from the Sons of Italy.

eorgetown University President John J. DeGioia named Daniel R. Porterfield, Ph.D. (C’83) Interim Athletics Director at the university in June 2009. Dr. Porterfield currently serves as Senior Vice President for Strategic Development. Porterfield has played an oversight role with Athletics for the past five years. He chaired the senior coordinating group that assisted the last interim Athletics Director in 2004-05. He participated in the search that brought Muir to the Francis X. Rienzo Chair of Athletics at Georgetown and provided week-to-week supervision for the Athletics Director on behalf of the President during the past year. In addition, he was a member of the Board of Directors ad hoc committee on Athletics in 2006-07 and has participated heavily in the development of budget parameters for the Department and a conceptual model for a new training facility. Porterfield has worked closely with head coaches John Thompson III and Terri Williams-Flournoy to maximize opportunities for the men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as with Vice President of Student Affairs Todd Olson to enhance academic services and leadership development for student-athletes. “I’m looking forward to providing interim leadership while President DeGioia recruits a new leader for the department,” Porterfield said. “My priorities will be to provide effective management, ensure a smooth transition for our permanent Athletics Director, meet and listen to coaches and alumni, and engage deeply with students so I can understand still better the nature and future potential of the student-athlete experience at Georgetown. This interim role combines nicely with my pre-existing work at Georgetown, which is to help foster academic excellence, on-campus continuity, service to the city and new initiatives.” Porterfield, who is also an assistant professor of English and teaches literature courses dealing with human rights, education and social justice, has served as a senior leader at Georgetown for more than 12 years.

Obama Praises Mutombo for Humanitarian Work By Lauren Burgoon

President Obama served as a surprise guest at the eighth annual “Let Freedom Ring!” event celebrating the life and legacy of the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and honoring NBA great and philanthropist Dikembe Mutombo (I’91). Obama entered the center’s concert hall to deafening cheers and praised Mutombo for his efforts to bring health care and education to his native Democratic Republic of the Congo. Georgetown and the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts hosted the celebration on Monday, Jan. 19. The president said Mutombo is attacking poverty in Africa “with the same ferocity that he used to block shots in the NBA.” The philanthropist received the John Thompson Jr. Legacy of a Dream Award for embodying King’s spirit and work through the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation. “Our philosophy is to help people so they can help them selves,” Mutombo said. The humanitarian credited his father, who earned about $37 a month as a school superintendent, with instilling in him an appreciation for education. Mutombo brought those lessons with him to Georgetown, where he found a mentor and friend in Thompson, Georgetown’s former men’s basketball coach between 1972 and1999. Mutombo, who retired last year after 18 years of professional basketball, called winning an award named for Thompson the “equivalent of an NBA championship.” He lauded his former head coach for pushing players to achieve beyond their expectations, especially off the basketball court. “You never know what direction life will take you or what road you will travel,” Mutombo said. “But your chances of success are certainly greater with an education than without one.” Georgetown President John J. DeGioia also commended Mutombo’s work in the Congo, telling a capacity audience how the foundation’s Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital and Research Center, which opened in 2007, is the country’s first new medical facility in almost 40 years.

“It is a testament to Dikembe’s respect for the dignity of his sisters and brothers of Kinshasa [Congo],” DeGioia said. “Dikembe embodies the values we celebrate when we gather together on this day.” Ryan Wilson (C’12) introduced the Legacy of the Dream Award, saying he felt honored to be on stage with Obama, Mutombo, Thompson and DeGioia. “I think the event was a tremendous opportunity for the Georgetown and D.C. communities to honor such important leaders,” said Wilson, who hails from King’s birthplace, Atlanta. “The added appearance by the president, roughly a year after his inauguration, made for a memorable night.” In celebrating his first Martin Luther King Jr. Day in office, Obama acknowledged that the nation still struggles to fully realize King’s visions. He urged Americans to draw from the civil rights leader’s example of unshakeable convictions. “Despite the bitterness of the past, despite the difficulties of the present and despite the uncertainty of the future, Dr. King held fast to his dream,” Obama said.

GEORGETOWN MEN’S BASKETBALL

VERIZON CENTER Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., Verizon Center has been home to Georgetown’s men’s basketball team since 1997. Located just a few blocks from Capitol Hill at 7th and F Streets NW, Verizon Center sits in the middle of a restaurant/shopping district known as Gallery Place. The excitement and energy can easily be felt on gameday as more than half the student body are season ticket holders. As the students wear their “We Are Georgetown” t-shirts to create a sea of gray behind each baseline, the atmosphere certainly gives the Hoyas an undeniable home court advantage.

JOHN THOMPSON III HEAD COACH | SIXTH SEASON

116-51 At Georgetown |184-93 Overall

ntering his sixth season as the head coach, John Thompson III has added new chapters to the rich history of Georgetown men’s basketball. Since arriving on the Hilltop, the Hoyas have advanced to one Final Four (2007), won a BIG EAST Tournament title (2007), won back-toback BIG EAST Regular Season titles (200607, 2007-08), reached three-straight NCAA Tournaments (2006-08) and been invited to the National Invitation Tournament twice (2005, 2009). During that time, Georgetown has been ranked among the top-25 teams in the country for 38-straight weeks and is among the winningest programs in the BIG EAST Conference. In addition, over the last three years, more Georgetown players (4) have been selected in the NBA Draft than any other school in the BIG EAST Conference. Thompson is a two-time winner of the Black Coaches Association (BCA) Male Coach of the Year Award (2007, 2008) and was named the 2007 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Coach of the Year. In his first five years at Georgetown, Thompson has guided the Hoyas to a 116-51 overall record (.695 win percentage) and to a 51-30 record in conference play. Overall in nine years as a head coach, including four at his alma mater, Princeton, Thompson has compiled a 184-93 overall record, with a 98-42 record in conference play (BIG EAST and Ivy League combined), won five league championships and guided his teams to eight postseason appearances Last season, Georgetown made its fifthstraight postseason appearance under Thompson, advancing to the NIT where the team lost to eventual runner-up Baylor. The Hoyas finished the season with a 16-15 overall record and were 7-11 in the conference, finishing 12th in the BIG EAST Conference, which was arguably the toughest in the country last year. Georgetown finished the season ranked No. 12 in the country in strength of schedule, posted four wins over top-25 teams, beat two teams that advanced to the Final Four (UConn

E

16

and Villanova) as well as two that advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament (Memphis, Syracuse). Freshman center Greg Monroe was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year, becoming the sixth player in Georgetown history to earn the award. The Hoyas made their third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance during the 2007-08 season, tabbed as the No. 2 seed before losing in the second round. Thompson’s team earned a 28-6 (82.3 win percentage) mark, going 15-3 in BIG EAST play to garner its second-consecutive regular season championship, a feat previously unmatched in Hoya history. His team appeared in the national polls all 20 weeks of the season, never dropping lower than 12th and senior Patrick Ewing Jr. earned the inaugural BIG EAST Sixth Man of the Year Award. During Thompson’s third season as Georgetown’s head coach, in 2006-07, JTIII and the Hoyas won the BIG EAST Regular Season Championship, the BIG EAST Tournament Championship and the NCAA East Regional Championship while compiling a 30-7 record en route to the Final Four. The Hoyas appeared in the national polls 18 times, defeated seven nationally-ranked opponents and compiled a conference record of 13-3. Thompson saw junior Jeff Green named BIG EAST Player of the Year, MVP of the BIG EAST Tournament and MVP of the NCAA East Regional. Green was the fifth player selected in the 2007 NBA Draft. Thompson garnered his second-consecutive BCA Fritz Pollard Coach of the Year Award as well as being named Coach of the Year by the NABC. In his second season at the helm, Thompson’s Hoyas made their presence felt with a thrilling run to the Sweet 16. This was his fifth trip to the post-season in six years as a head coach. A first-round victory over Northern Iowa and a second-round defeat of Ohio State advanced Georgetown to its first Regional Semifinal since 2001. The Hoyas, who fell just three points shy of a victory over the eventual national champion Florida Gators, ended the year with a 23-10 overall record, earning Thompson the Black Coaches Association’s Fritz Pollard Male Coach of the Year Award. In his inaugural season as the Hoyas’ head coach, Thompson’s approach took a giant leap when he became one of only three coaches in BIG EAST history to defeat a nationally ranked team in the conference opener. The Hoyas ended up winning 19 games and advanced to the NIT Quarterfinals. Arriving on the Hilltop in 2004, Thompson became the 17th head coach in program history and the second named John Thompson.

of another, JTIII has added a Princeton touch to Georgetown’s rich basketball history, creating a new system he describes as the Georgetown Offense: “The `system’ is more about how you see the game than about plays. It’s about adjusting and adapting to your own skills and strengths, and the skills and strengths of your opponent. If you look at the Sacramento Kings, Washington Wizards, Northwestern, Richmond or Princeton, they obviously aren’t the exact same style of ball. But the principles they play are the same – movement, reads, sharing patience and precision. You take the skills and personality of your team and tweak the system accordingly.” Prior to coaching at Georgetown, Thompson guided Princeton to three Ivy League Championships, two NCAA tournaments and an NIT appearance over his four years as head coach. He amassed a 68-42 record as Princeton’s head coach after serving as an assistant coach at Princeton from 1995- 2000. As assistant coach, he helped lead the team to a top-10 national ranking and five-consecutive postseason appearances. Princeton not only made the postseason eight of nine years during Thompson’s tenure, but he helped recruit and coach three All-Americans, three Ivy League Players of the Year, two Ivy League Rookies of the Year and 12 First Team All-Ivy League players. Thompson also played basketball as an undergraduate for the Tigers while majoring in politics. As a forward, he ranks third on Princeton’s all-time assist leader list with 358. Playing for legendary coach Pete Carril, Thompson produced with amazing proficiency with 103 assists and just 34 turnovers as a senior. He was co-captain of the 1988 team and shared the B.F. Bunn trophy that year as one of the Tigers’ Most Valuable Players. Thompson, 43, grew up in Washington, D.C., and graduated from Gonzaga College High School. As a high school senior, he was named first team All-Metro by the Washington Post. With his wife, Monica, the couple created the John Thompson III Foundation, which annually holds events to support non-profits in the D.C. Metropolitan area that work with severe at-risk children and families. John and Monica, also a Princeton grad (Class of ‘89), have three children: Morgan, age 11; John Wallace, age 8; and Matthew, age 6.

JOHN THOMPSON III FOUNDATION The John Thompson III Foundation was established in 2007. The mission of the John Thompson III Foundation is to foster community-based charities that serve at-risk children and families. The primary focus is education and healthcare. The Foundation partners primarily, but not exclusively, with non-profits in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region which specialize in programs targeted to underserved children and families.

The John Thompson III Foundation intends to aid those organizations working within Washington, D.C. to address the community’s more dire conditions, including: • The 2005 estimated poverty rate was 19.8 percent of all residents, or 98,069 persons, living below the federal poverty level • 36 percent of all children and 42 percent of all African-American children were living below the federal poverty level in 2005. • While the District ranks second highest in per capita personal income among the states, it also ranks third highest in overall poverty rates and highest in poverty rates for children. • More than 40% of youth in the District do NOT complete high school. • Nearly 49% of the youth that are enrolled in the majority of the District’s high schools are truant. • In 2005-06, only 27 percent of all DCPS and public charter school students tested at a proficient or advanced level in math. • Cancer is the second leading cause of death among District residents (22% of all deaths are due to cancer alone). Cancer is 27 percent more prevalent among blacks (512.8 22

cases per 100,000 population) than whites (404.5 cases per 100,000 population). In the District of Columbia, the percentage of women who receive prenatal care varies from 70 percent among blacks to 90 percent among whites. • District of Columbia has higher rates of heart disease, stroke and all cancers on average than the rest of the United States. • The Infant Mortality Rate for the District of Columbia has decreased from 11.9 per 1,000 live births in 2000 to 10.6 per 1,000 live births in 2001. The rate has declined by 42 percent over a 10-year period since 1992. But is still almost double the national average. • The January 2006 homeless count included 3,485 homeless adults and children in families. The Third Annual Foundation Weekend was held on Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19 at multiple sites in the District of Columbia. All of the proceeds from this year’s events benefitted the Washington Jesuit Academy. This was the first year the John Thompson III Foundation partnered exclusively with the Washington Jesuit Academy (WJA), an allmale middle school in Northeast D.C. Since opening its doors in 2001, the students of WJA have consistently improved their proficiency in math and reading, outperforming their peers in D.C. public schools by close to 30 percentage points. In addition, 100 percent of WJA graduates are enrolled in or have completed high school. This September the first group of WJA graduates will enter college. The John Thompson III Foundation is committed to helping WJA achieve its goal of raising $10 million for its Opening Doors to the Future campaign, which Coach Thompson and his wife, Monica, serve as Honorary CoChairs. All proceeds raised from the benefit dinner supported this campaign. Sheila C. Johnson, CEO of Salamander Hospitality and President & Manager of the Washington

Mystics was the Honorary Chair for the dinner. Leon Harris of WJLA-TV served as the Master of Ceremonies. The JTIII Community Fest was held on Saturday, September 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Turkey Thicket Recreation Center, located at 1100 Michigan Ave. NE in Washington, D.C. Community partners include Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, YMCA, D.C. Department of Parks & Recreation and WJA. As in the past, the community fest will be a fun-filled event for children and adults, with food, fun, entertainment and information on education, health and well being and health screenings.

HOYA TRADITION

FOR OVER 100 YEARS, THE GEORGETOWN BASKETBALL PROGRAM HAS BEEN HIGHLIGHTED BY RICH TRADITION ... Historical records show us the accomplishments of future Congressman Henry Hyde and his team in the 1940s. Professional achievement tells us of the academic rigor and athletic pursuits of the 1960s that helped shape Paul Tagliabue, former Commissioner of the NFL and current Director of the Board of Trustees at Georgetown. Trophies, awards and championships are evidence of the success John Thompson Jr. compiled in the 1970s, 80s and 90s and John Thompson III in the 2000s.

TOP GAMES IN HOYA HISTORY 1943 NCAA Semifinals

“Believe it or Not … By Ripley” Facing basketball legend George Mikan and his veteran DePaul squad, an inexperienced team of Hoyas approaches its second ever game in the NCAA tournament. The Hoyas are 3-to-1 underdogs and opposing coaches claim that “DePaul will name its own score!” against the younger Hoyas. Playing before a crowd of 14,085 on March 25, 1943, at Madison Square Garden, The Hoyas trail throughout the opening frame and are down by seven as the half winds down until a 50-foot shot at the buzzer by Georgetown’s Lloyd Potolicchio narrows the DePaul lead to 28-23. The Hoyas storm back in the second half, building a 40-36 lead with 10 minutes remaining when GU’s John Mahnken, who had been neutralizing Mikan, fouls out. At this point, all appeared lost, as Georgetown has no one tall enough to stay with Mikan. Against all expectations Coach Elmer Ripley brings 6-3 Henry Hyde off the bench to contain DePaul’s 6-10 big man, which Hyde does through the conclusion of regulation. The Hoyas win a 53-49 decision, prompting a Hoya fan to shout out the quote of the tournament: “Believe it or not … by Ripley!”

81-74 with 3:08 to play, the Hoya defense went to work, and LSU would not score another field goal the rest of the game. A pair of Georgetown goals narrowed the count to 81-78 with under a minute to play, and as Maravich looked to dribble out the clock, he was fouled. With the game on the line, Maravich missed the front end of the one-and-one, and the Hoyas were still alive. Coming down the court, Art White sank two of his team-high 28 points to narrow the score to 81-80 with 0:17 left. Maravich was quickly fouled again to stop the clock. He later told the New York Daily News that “I remembered the way my dad (LSU coach Press Maravich) got on me for missing the other one, so I figured I’d better make it.” Despite the cries of every Hoya fan in the building, Maravich sank both free throws, and a final Hoya score closed out the 83-82 LSU win.

1970 NIT

Never Underestimate the Power of a Hoya Senior guard Mike Laska drew the unenviable and seemingly impossible task of containing LSU’s basketball legend “Pistol” Pete Maravich when the Hoyas faced the Tigers in the 1970 NIT. To everyone’s disbelief, Laska played the defensive game of a lifetime. In the first ten minutes of the game, the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer had but one field goal. For the game, Maravich shot 6 for 16 from the field and had 20 points overall, a performance he called “pitiful”. To Hoya fans, it was something else entirely. With Maravich under wraps, LSU’s front line of 6-8 Danny Hester, 6-8 Al Sanders, and 6-9 Bill Newton took advantage of its height. With the ball going inside, the Tiger trio combined for 56 points and 43 rebounds, and three Hoyas (Adrion, Laughna, and senior Paul Favorite) fouled out in the process. Still, the Blue and Gray would not quit. Trailing 66

1975 ECAC-South Final

Georgetown defeats West Virginia at the Morgantown Coliseum, 3/18/75 Down one with under 10 seconds left, freshman Derrick Jackson connected on an 18 foot shot with two seconds remaining. The basket gave the Hoyas an improbable 62-61 win over West Virginia at the Morgantown Coliseum in front of 14,000 hostile Mountaineers. The win in the ECAC-South final entitled the Hoyas to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1943.

The Shot Everybody Saw

Georgetown defeats George Washington at McDonough Gymnasium, 2/22/78 With time running out (0:02) and the Hoyas down by two, Craig Esherick hoists a 35 footer which ties the game as regulation expires. The Hoyas go on to defeat the Colonials 78-77 in overtime. The Hoyas’ third one-point victory in six days, prompts GW Coach Bob Talent’s analysis; “God is smiling on them this year.” After GW’s Les Anderson hits a 12 foot fadeaway jump shot in the closing seconds, the Hoyas call a timeout. Steve Martin then inbounds the ball to Esherick, standing on just the other side of the half court stripe. Closely guarded by Anderson, Esherick pivots to his right and launches a shot which draws nothing but net. “The shot was designed for Derrick Jackson. He’s our number one clutch shooter,” said Esherick. “But during the timeout Mr. Thompson told me to look for the ball too. I had a perfect look at the basket.” Asked about his feelings, Esherick calmly replies, “Every time I shoot it, I expect it to go in.” Years later Esherick, then Georgetown University’s 16th head men’s basketball coach, wondered about the game, “I know how big McDonough is and I remember how many people I thought were in the building, but I just can’t explain it ... I’ve had so many people tell me they saw that shot, I found myself wondering if the game was somehow in a gym that seated 25,000 people.”

Last Game at Manley

“Manley Field House is officially closed.” … GU Defeats No. 2 Syracuse, 2/13/80 Despite shooting only 21 percent from the field in the opening half and trailing 16-30 at intermission, the Hoyas rally to defeat the No. 2 ranked Orangemen 52-50 in the final game in Manley Field House. Led by the inside play of Craig “Big Sky” Shelton, and Ed “Postman” Spriggs as well as the clutch free throws of Eric “Sleepy” Floyd, the Hoyas ended the nation’s longest Division I home court winning streak at 57. Down by 15 with 14 minutes remaining, the

GEORGETOWN MEN’S BASKETBALL Hoyas heard the Syracuse fans begin a chorus of Auld Lang Syne, but refused to give up. Maintaining defensive pressure, the Hoyas pounded the ball down low and chipped away at their deficit. The Orangemen, struggling from the stripe, found their key scorer, Roosevelt Bouie, neutralized. Syracuse’s attempt to protect their lead in the final 10 minutes proved unsuccessful. Floyd, Shelton and Spriggs scored from the field, answered only by a single free throw by Bouie, making the score 49-44 with 2:10 remaining. Shelton hit two free-throws at the 1:15 mark to bring the score to 48-46. Marty Headd of Syracuse was fouled and made a free throw for the final Orangemen points with 34 seconds remaining. Spriggs and Floyd closed out the scoring for Georgetown, paving the way for Coach Thompson’s famous quote: “Manley Field House is officially closed.”

1982 NCAA Finals Thompson vs. Smith

In a matchup which pitted friends against each other, coach John Thompson Jr.’s Hoyas faced Dean Smith’s Tarheels in the NCAA Finals on March 29, 1982 at the Superdome in New Orleans. 61,612 fans in attendance saw the Hoyas surge to an early 12-6 lead, the biggest of the game. At intermission Georgetown held a one-point edge, 32-31 in spite of Patrick Ewing being whistled for five goaltending calls in the opening minutes. Freshman guard Michael Jordan swished a 16-foot jumper from the left side with 16 seconds remaining to provide the title game’s final points as North Carolina edged Georgetown, 63-62. Georgetown guard Fred Brown’s errant pass directly to Tar Heels forward James Worthy prevented the Hoyas from attempting a potential game-winning shot in the closing seconds. Patrick Ewing paced the Hoyas with a doubledouble, scoring 23 points and grabbing a game leading 11 boards. “Sleepy” Floyd contributed 18 points while Eric Smith added 14 tallies. For UNC, Worthy scored 28, Jordan had 16 points and nine boards while Sam Perkins poured in 10 points. One of the most enduring images from that game is the video of John Thompson wrapping Fred Brown in a bear hug after the game. “I told him not to worry, that he had won more games than he lost,” Thompson said later, “I didn’t think about it, I just felt he needed it”. Two years later the hug would be repeated for an entirely different reason.

Battle of the Big Men

Ewing vs. Sampson, 12/11/82 The Dec. 11, 1982 matchup of giant centers, 6-11 sophomore Patrick Ewing and 7-4 senior Ralph Sampson, was also a battle between the No. 3-ranked Hoyas and the No. 1-ranked Cavaliers. The sellout crowd of 19,035 at the Capital Centre saw a game which was decided in the final four minutes of play. At intermission the Cavaliers enjoyed a

68

10-point bulge, 33-23. Virginia led by as many as 14 (41-27) early in the second half, but the Hoyas continued to apply defensive pressure while improving their shot selection and put together a 10-2 streak to move the score to 43-37 with 13:41 left to play. With 3:47 remaining, freshman David Wingate hit a 20 footer, knotting the score at 59. Four seconds later UVA’s Craig Robinson made a pair from the stripe putting Virginia back up by two, 61-59. At the 3:15 mark Anthony Jones’ 18 footer evened the score at 61. Eleven seconds later Othell Wilson’s work from the stripe put the Cavaliers back up by two. Although Virginia was held scoreless from the field in the final 5:50, three key whistles against the Hoyas in the final 95 seconds (travel, charge and shooting foul) gave UVA the chance to win the game from the stripe, which they did. The Hoyas outrebounded their opponents 42-38 and Patrick Ewing led Georgetown with 16 points, eight rebounds and five blocks. David Wingate added 12 tallies and Anthony Jones scored 10 points while leading the Hoyas’ rebounding with nine boards. Sampson had a double-double for Virginia with 23 points, 16 rebounds and seven blocks.

Houston succumbed to the pressure. Five Hoyas scored in double figures in the 84-75 victory. Reggie Williams scored 19, David Wingate added 16, Michael Graham had 14, Michael Jackson contributed 11 and Patrick Ewing dropped in 10 points and led the team in rebounding with nine boards. For the Cougars, Alvin Franklin scored 21, Olajuwon had 15 points and nine boards and Michael Young added 18 tallies. The impact of winning the National Championship can never be fully assessed. It is not only a pinnacle of college basketball that only a handful of schools has reached, but it is also a vindication of all of the suffering and sacrifice that preceeds it as well. For Georgetown that image is indelibly marked by the hug that Thompson Jr. gave Fred Brown after the victory, this time in celebration rather than consolation.

The Sweater Game 1985 vs. St. John’s

In a much heralded rematch of No. 1 vs. No. 2, Madison Square Garden was the scene of the Hoyas’ revenge on St. John’s head coach Lou Carnesecca’s Redmen. Earlier in the season the John Thompson Jr. inchampions the defending national had been upset “sweater game” by the Chris Mullin-led Redmen at the USAir Arena, 66-65, costing Georgetown its top position in the national polls. With a national television audience on CBS and a sold out Madison Square Garden, the late February contest had all the excitement of the NCAA Finals. Carnesecca, whose team was 24-1 coming into the contest had explained his team’s good fortune with a “lucky sweater” which he wore on the sidelines. The New York media had adopted this piece of superstition and hyped the sweater’s powers to mythic proportions. When coach John Thompson Jr. came out during warm-ups and opened his jacket to expose a replica of the sweater, the sophisticated New York crowd roared with delight. The roars quieted as the game went on and

1984 NCAA Finals National Champions

Georgetown’s Patrick Ewing and Houston’s Hakeem Olajuwon, the nation’s two most celebrated centers, faced off against each other as the Hoyas and Cougars fought in the Seattle Kingdome for the national title. “Phi Slama Jamma” had missed their opportunity the year previously, falling to NC State by two points on a buzzer beating put-back, while the Hoyas had been downed by a single point two years earlier when North Carolina’s James Worthy caught Fred Brown’s errant pass. Each team resolved there would be no flukes in this contest. Co-captain and defensive catalyst Gene Smith, sidelined by a foot injury sustained in the semifinal victory over Kentucky, watched his team take a lead with 32 minutes to play which they would never relinquish. Making extensive use of his team’s depth, coach John Thompson Jr. kept sending in waves of fresh Hoyas until

the No. 2 Hoyas beat the No. 1 Redmen, 85-69. After tying the game at 22 and 26 in the first half, the Redmen fell to the Hoyas pressure defense, trailing by nine at intermission 50-41. St. John’s opened the second half with a jumper which eased the deficit to seven, but then the Hoyas went on a run, putting the margin into double digits, effectively putting the contest out of

For the Redmen, Chris Mullin scored 21 points and Walter Berry had 16 points and 10 rebounds.

2001 NCAA Tournament “Just the way we planned it”

Nathaniel Burton’s lay-up at the buzzer gave the Hoyas (24-7) a 63-61 victory against Arkansas (20-11) in the First Round of the NCAA West Regional in Boise, Idaho. With the score knotted at 61, the Hoyas held for the last shot with Burton dribbling at the top of the key. With leading scorer Kevin Braswell covered, Burton drove to his left by a Razorback defender and released the ball as the clock expired to give GU its first NCAA Tournament victory since the 1995-96 season. Kevin Braswell led GU with 12 points and four assists. Mike Sweetney had his fifth doubledouble of the season with 10 points and 12 rebounds, pacing the Hoyas in the rebounding category. Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje had nine rebounds, and Anthony Perry came off the bench to record 10 points, rounding out a trio of Hoyas in double figures. Georgetown trailed by as many as seven points with 11:12 remaining in the contest and its hopes of advancing suffered a blow when co-captain Kevin Braswell picked up his fourth foul with 10:36 to play. After Braswell’s foul, the Hoyas rallied to score the next seven points to tie the game at 52-52. GU’s defense held Arkansas scoreless for almost four minutes during the run. “Yes,” head coach Craig Esherick confirmed in the post game press conference, “the play went just the way we planned it.” His pointed look at Mike Sweetney vs. Notre Dame

Nathaniel and the snickers from the players did nothing to wipe the look of innocence from the senior forward’s face.

Battle of Attrition

Quadruple OT vs. Notre Dame, 2/9/02 In the longest game in Georgetown history, the Hoyas fell in quadruple overtime to Notre Dame by a score of 111-116. Mike Sweetney set career highs in scoring and rebounding as he led all scorers with 35 and all rebounders with 20 boards. He also had six assists, one turnover, six blocks and one steal in his 13th double-double of the season. Wesley Wilson also set a career high in scoring with 26 points. Wesley had seven boards and five blocks. Kevin Braswell scored a different double-double with 12 points and 10 assists. Drew Hall contributed 10 points and set a career high in rebounds with eight. The Irish were scorching hot in the first frame, shooting 58% from the field and leading the Hoyas by as many as 12 points with 1:52 remaining. The Hoyas, however, revealed the tone of the game in the half’s waning seconds as they ran off seven unanswered to trail by five, 43-48. The second half saw the Hoyas outshoot the Irish, 44% to 40%. Notre Dame proved however, that they were no more willing to let the game slip away than the Hoyas were. When Graves missed a trey in the final two minutes, Sweetney answered with a deuce in the paint. Carroll replied with a two of his own and Georgetown could not find a good shot in the final five seconds of regulation. The first overtime saw only four points scored by each team as both squads demonstrated their defensive determination. Once again the Hoyas put themselves in good position with the ball in hand and the score tied with 17 seconds remaining, but Braswell’s trey hit rim, glass, rim and jumped out. The second overtime marked the departures for excessive fouls of Timmerman and Swanigan for ND, and Wesley Wilson for GU. Courtland Freeman also made his way to the bench after falling on his back after a hard foul. The battle of the closing seconds was intense as Humphrey rebounded a Braswell miss only to have the ball stolen by Drew Hall. Braswell’s three with just five seconds remaining on the clock did not go and a third overtime was required. In the third overtime Notre Dame led by as many as five before the Hoyas were able to pull even. Like the preceding periods, the Hoyas had the ball with the score tied, but Riley’s floater at the buzzer lofted across the rim, necessitating a BIG EAST record fourth overtime. Riley, Sweetney and Braswell fouled out in the fourth overtime and ND’s two-point lead proved insurmountable. The final was 116-111.

Down Goes Duke

Hoyas top nation’s No. 1, 1/21/06 Georgetown senior Brandon Bowman scored 23 points to lead five players in double figures as the Hoyas upset No. 1-ranked Duke

70

in front of a sold-out crowd of 20,035 at Verizon Center. It was the first win for a Georgetown team over a team ranked No. 1 in the country since beating St. John’s on February 27, 1985. The Hoyas hit four of six free throws in the final 39 seconds and forced a turnover from Duke freshman guard Greg Paulus with four seconds left to seal the win. Georgetown led by 14 points at halftime and maintained that lead through the first eight minutes of the second half. Duke narrowed the gap to eight points, 66-58, on a layup from J.J. Redick — who scored a game-high 41 points — with 8:58 to play in the game. The Hoyas bumped the lead back up to nine points, 68-59, on a pair of free throws by sophomore guard Jonathan Wallace and the lead was again nine points, 70-61, after senior guard Ashanti Cook hit a pair of free throws with 6:15 to play. Redick hit a three and a jumper, Jamal Boykin had a putback and Shelden Williams added a layup in a 34-second stretch to pull the Blue Devils within two points, 74-72, with 4:05 to play. However, the Hoyas forced two turnovers and got a layup from Wallace and a fast-break dunk from senior guard Darrel Owens as the lead grew back to six points with 2:09 to play. Sophomore forward Jeff Green hit one of two free throws with 1:44 to play to make it seven points, 79-72. A dunk by Bowman with 1:15 to play gave the Hoyas an eight-point lead, 82-74, and the lead was at seven points (85-78) after Bowman hit two free throws. Sean Dockery hit a fast break layup and Paulus got a steal and a layup to pull within three points, 85-82, with 22 seconds to play, but Bowman and Wallace hit one of two from the line before forcing the final turnover as Georgetown hung on for the thrilling win.

2007 NCAA Elite Eight

Georgetown puts away top-seeded North Carolina in OT; Earns first trip to Final Four since 1985 In an NCAA tournament full of incredible rallies, it was the Hoyas’ turn against North Carolina. The Hoyas overcame an 11-point deficit in the second half, then ripped off 14-straight points in overtime to beat top-seeded Carolina 96-84 in the East Regional Final for their first trip to the Final Four since 1985.

GEORGETOWN MEN’S BASKETBALL throws pushed the lead back to five points, 77-72, but Wallace hit a pair from the line and Ewing connected on a layup to make it a one-point game, 77-76. The Tar Heels responded and extended the lead back to three points on two occasions in the final two-plus minutes, but a missed jumper by Hansbrough with 45 seconds left gave the Hoyas a chance. Wallace calmly sank his three-pointer from the wing with 31 seconds left, sending the game to overtime.

2008

Back-to-Back BIG EAST Regular Season Champions

Georgetown put the clamps on North Carolina in the game’s final 15 minutes, limiting the Tar Heels to only one made field goal in 23 attempts, including their first 12 in overtime. After Georgetown’s Jonathan Wallace hit a three that tied it at 81 with 31 seconds left in regulation, the Tar Heels had a chance to win it, but freshman Wayne Ellington missed an open jumper from the wing right before the buzzer and Patrick Ewing grabbed the rebound. In overtime, it was over in a hurry. Wallace scored inside, freshman DaJuan Summers dunked a minute later, and Jeff Green added a layup to make it 87-81. In that span, the Tar Heels missed their first five shots and the Hoyas went inside and got fouled - Summers made four free throws and Jessie Sapp added a pair. Summers’ dunk extended the lead to 95-81 before Ty Lawson broke the scoreless streak with a three in the closing seconds. The Tar Heels jumped on top early in the game, opening up a 10-point lead in the first half on the Hoyas after a three-point play from Brandan Wright. A run late in the first half, capped by a jumper from Wallace, pulled GU to within six points, 50-44 at the break. The teams battled back and forth in the opening minutes of the second half and Georgetown was able to pull within three points, 59-56, on a three-pointer from Sapp with just over 15 minutes left. That’s when North Carolina went on a 10-2 run over a span of 2:44, taking a 69-58 lead with 12:22 to play. The Tar Heels maintained that lead, taking a 75-65 advantage on free throws from Marcus Ginyard with 7:19 remaining. That’s when Georgetown took over. A foul shot by Green, a layup by Sapp, another layup by Green and a dunk by Roy Hibbert, and it was 75-72 — a 7-0 spurt in 2:57. A pair of Wright free 72

In a punch and counter-punch game worthy of its billing, Georgetown (25-4, 15-3) survived Louisville’s relentless defense and made just enough plays en route to a 55-53 in the regular season finale at Verizon Center on March 3, giving the Hoyas back-to-back BIG EAST Regular Season titles for the first time in school history. “It feels the same, man,” Thompson III said. “Winning the regular season is something that is truly special in any league.” And, just as he did last year on the first Saturday in March, the coach got to joke that he would sneak back into the Verizon Center late at night with his wife to cut the nets down - with no apologies for the run of success. “It’s my job to be greedy,” he said. “I’m going to stay greedy as far as that goes. But you’ve got to be fortunate. This league is a monster.” The Cardinals (24-7, 14-4) matched a season high with 14 steals, but they were undone by 4-for-18 shooting from 3-point range, 10-for-18 shooting from the free-throw line, and a failure rotate the zone to cover DaJuan Summers in the final minute. Summers’ wide-open 3-pointer with 40 seconds to play, his only shot in the second half, was the winning basket. The assist came from Jonathan Wallace, the senior point guard whose other big Senior Day play was a double-clutch short jumper among the trees in the final two minutes. Freshman Austin Freeman had 15 points for the Hoyas, who have won five straight, 12 of 14 and earned the No. 1 seed in the BIG EAST Tournament for the second-straight year. Georgetown, which shot 65 percent in the second half, won its 22nd-straight home game and improved to 6-0 in games decided by five points or fewer. Roy Hibbert had 12 points, six rebounds and four blocks in his final home game. After Summers’ three-pointer, the Cardinals had three chances to tie, but Georgetown held off Louisville to capture its 22nd-straight home win and improved to 6-0 in games decided by five points or fewer. The game marked only the second time the BIG EAST Regular Season Title was decided in a game between teams tied for first entering the

final day. After the game, Summers carried around the BIG EAST trophy, and his superstitious coach was thankful that Georgetown’s odd decision to unveil new uniforms on Senior Day didn’t jinx the outcome. Then he started to look ahead. For a team that is seeking to return to the Final Four, a regular season title is just one step. “We’re still sitting at the table,” Thompson said. “The game’s still going on. Cards are still being played. The dice is still in someone’s hand. So we can’t pick ourselves up and start to feel good right now. We’ve got to keep playing.”

2008

Young Hoyas Topple UConn in BIG EAST Opener Junior forward DaJuan Summers scored 18

points to lead four players in double figures as Georgetown opened up a 15-1 lead and never looked back, beating No. 2 Connecticut, 74-63, in front of 16,294 fans at the XL Center in the BIG EAST Conference opener on December 29. It was the seventh-straight win for the Hoyas, who improved to 10-1 overall and 1-0 in the BIG EAST, while UConn fell to 11-1 overall and 0-1 in the league. It was Georgetown’s secondstraight win over the Huskies and the first time the Hoyas had beaten UConn on the road since the 1996-97 season. The Hoyas scored 15 of the first 16 points in the game, held a 36-27 advantage at the break and led from start to finish. Twice the Huskies pulled back to within three points, but each time Georgetown responded. After Stanley Robinson free throws made it 44-41, sophomore guard Austin Freeman hit a pair of free throws to make it 46-41. After Jeff Adrien hit a layup, Freeman responded with a conventional three-point play, pushing the lead to 49-43. The lead was four points, 49-45 after an Adrien layup, but Freeman hit two free throws and senior guard Jessie Sapp hit a three from the top of the key, pushing GU’s lead up to nine points, 54-45. From that point, the Hoyas used the free throw line. After missing their only two attempts in the first half, Georgetown hit 18-of-19 in the second half, including 10 in a row late in the game - with Summers hitting four and freshman center Greg Monroe, freshman guard Jason Clark and sophomore guard Chris Wright each hitting two - as the lead grew to 13 points, 6249. Georgetown took its biggest lead, 70-53, on a dunk from Summers with 4:04 to play in the game. Summers scored 18 points, grabbed four rebounds and had three assists to lead the way, while Monroe added 16 points, four assists and three rebounds, Wright scored 16 points and had two assists and three steals and Freeman chipped in 13 points with six boards. Sapp added five points and five rebounds. The Hoyas shot 47.2 percent from the floor (25-of-53), hit 46.2 percent of their three-pointers (6-of-13) and were 85.7 percent from the free throw line (18-of-21).

A SENSE OF

HISTORY By Mike “Mex” Carey Sports Information Director

G

reg Monroe has a sense of history. A native of New Orleans, he’s aware of some of the players from his hometown who had success at Georgetown, like Dwayne Bryant, Duane Spencer and Jaren Jackson. A 6-11, 247-pound center, he knows the names of the some of the great big men to have played at Georgetown and their accomplishments (Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo). A sophomore who was named the 2009 BIG EAST Rookie of the Year, he knows the names of some of the other Georgetown players who won that award and what they did during their careers (Ewing, Mourning, Allen Iverson, Jeff Green). But if you ask Monroe, he’s not ready yet to put himself in the same sentence with those names. Still, Monroe made a big impact during his first year on the Hilltop, finishing second on the team in scoring (12.7 points per game), led the team in rebounding (6.5), blocked shots (1.45) and steals (1.8) while finishing among the top 10 in the league in field goal percentage. He has continued that this season, ranking third on the team in scoring with 14.0 points per game and leading the team with 9.7 rebounds per game, a figure that ranks third in the BIG EAST Conference. Monroe has also registered five double-doubles and seven games with at least 10 rebounds. “It makes me feel good being in company with those players, but they all left a legacy here,” Monroe said. “They have real legacies. They went on to be great players in the

86

League, so I’m just trying to do the things they did. Jeff Green went to a Final Four. I’m trying to do that. Whatever happens after that, we’ll see, but I’m trying to win like they did when they were here.” Monroe came in with high expectations after being rated one of the top players in the country as a scholastic senior at Helen Cox High School just outside of New Orleans. The comfort level he felt on his official visit reminded him of his home and that made his decision to come to Georgetown that much easier. “It’s a very tight-knit city and a lot of people in the area are my family,” he said of his hometown. “Everyone knows everyone. Most of my family live in the area. It definitely translated into Georgetown. “One of the things that is great about Georgetown is that it’s a small campus. The people here are kind of tight-knit and I like that a lot. The familiarity ... you get a chance to be comfortable with people and get to know people on campus and fit in.” As a freshman last year, Monroe was a starter for every game, but he still wasn’t much different from classmates like Jason Clark or Henry Sims, having to make an adjustment. “Coming in and being able to play (as a freshman), I was definitely nervous,” Monroe said. “This program has a long history. There’s no need to say any names. Coming in and being able to play in the same gym and wear the jersey they wore, it definitely made me nervous. I couldn’t shake the comparison (to Ewing, etc.), so that made me even more nervous. It was fun, but I guarantee any other freshman in my

situation would have been nervous.” The nerves did not show too much. In his first game, he scored 14 points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked five shots against Jacksonville. He helped guide the Hoyas to a 10-1 start, including a big win to open BIG EAST play at Connecticut. The remainder of the season did not go as he and his teammates planned, but after a summer of hard work - including a chance to work out with Alonzo Mourning when the Georgetown Hall of Famer was on campus, and playing in the Kenner League with NBA stars such as Green, Kevin Durant and Michael Beasley - Monroe is ready to start again. “Coming in this year, knowing the system, knowing how to handle things off the court, I’m definitely

more prepared,” he said. “Last year we didn’t have as good a season as we wanted, but we need to learn from our mistakes and know what we have to do to win some games, to close out games and get big stops.” Monroe has helped the Hoyas do that this year. He scored the game-winning basket against Temple - scoring 11 points and grabbing nine rebounds in that game - and has come up big in some of the preconference tests. Against Butler during the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden, he scored 24 points and grabbed a then-career-high 15 rebounds. He followed that up with 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals against Washington at the John Wooden Classic. “Using everything from last year, everyone was itching to play this season,” Monroe said. “We’ve put that season behind us and we want to make this one of the best years in Georgetown history.”

MASN to Televise Nine Georgetown Basketball Games Georgetown Hoops Tip Off on MASN November 28 vs. Layfayette

(Washington D.C.) - MASN, the local leader in live sports entertainment and the official network of the Georgetown Hoyas, will televise nine Georgetown men’s basketball games this season. The first televised game will feature the Hoyas as they host Lafayette at the Verizon Center live at 12:00 p.m. on November 28th. Throughout the season, MASN will televise Georgetown match-ups with local schools like Mount St. Mary’s, Old Dominion and Rutgers - as well as nationally-ranked teams like Big East powerhouse Villanova. Led by head coach John Thompson III, the Hoyas are ranked 20th in the Associated Press pre-season poll. Additionally, stand-out star and last season’s Rookie of the Year Greg Monroe was recently named to Naismith’s preseason watch list. “MASN has been a tremendous partner to us over the past few years, expanding our presence throughout the region and helping us reach even more fans, alumni and potential recruits,” said Thompson. “We are looking forward to playing on MASN again this season.” MASN is in its fourth year of a partnership with Georgetown University, which allows fans, parents, alumni and recruits to enjoy the Hoyas on 23 different cable and satellite systems throughout MASN’s seven-state territory. “Georgetown is one of the most storied basketball programs in the nation and a natural partner for the network,” said MASN spokesman Todd Webster. “MASN is proud of our commitment to local, live sports action and our extensive NCAA basketball package.” The official cable network of George Mason University, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and the Big South Conference, MASN features over 200 NCAA basketball games in at least 13 different conferences each season. With over 80 Big East games, MASN is also home to the Big East Game of the Week. Additionally, MASN televises the annual BB&T Classic each December.

GEORGETOWN MEN’S BASKETBALL

hoyas & USA BASKETBALL Not only has Georgetown Basketball made an impact in the BIG EAST and at the NCAA Division I level, but Hoyas have been a major part of USA Basketball. Georgetown Hoyas have been part of our nation’s effort in six of the last eight Olympic Games. In 1976, Hoya coach John Thompson Jr. served as an assistant coach as the United States went 7-0 en route to a gold medal in Montreal, Quebec. When basketball made its first Olympic appearance on native soil in Los Angeles in 1984, the United States captured gold and Patrick Ewing was the tournament’s leading shot blocker with 18. Thompson Jr. returned to Olympic competition as the head coach in 1988 in Seoul, Korea, along with Mary Fenlon. Charles E. Smith was second in assists on that 1988 team and helped the U.S. win bronze. After FIBA opened Olympic competition to include NBA players, Patrick Ewing was named to the 1992 “Dream Team” and led the U.S. in blocked shots on its way to gold in Barcelona, Spain. Alonzo Mourning also led his Olympic team in blocked shots in 2000, as the team won gold in Sydney, Australia. In the summer of 2004, Allen Iverson and the United States won bronze, while he led the team in scoring. Former Hoya DaJuan Summers was a finalist for the 2006 USA Men’s U-18 National Team. Prior to his senior year, Roy Hibbert was a member of the United States team that participated in the Pan Am Games in 2007 and current Head Coach John Thompson III was an assistant coach for the 2008 U-18 team that competed in the FIBA Americas Championship. Former Hoya Jeff Green was invited to participate in Team USA’s National MiniCamp in July 2009, and current Hoya, sophomore Greg Monroe, was a member of the 2007 USA Basketball Men’s Youth Development Festival. The Georgetown reach has also extended to native homelands as former Georgetown player Joe Touomou is serving as the head coach for the Cameroon National Team, his native country.

GEORGETOWN MEN’S BASKETBALL

GEORGETOWN F IGHT SONG It’s been so long since last we met, Lie down forever, lie down; Or have you any money to bet, Lie down forever, lie down. There goes old... Georgetown, Straight for a... rebound, See how they... gain ground, Lie down forever, lie down, Lie down forever, lie down. Rah! Rah! Rah! Hurrah for Georgetown, Cheer for victory today. ‘Ere the sun has sunk to rest, In the cradle of the West, In the clouds will proudly float The Blue and Gray. We’ve heard those loyal fellows up at Yale Brag and boast about their Boola-Boola. We’ve heard the Navy yell, We’ve listened to Cornell; We’ve heard the sons of Harvard tell How Crimson lines could hold them. Choo Choo, Rah Rah, dear old Holy Cross; The proud old Princeton tiger Is never at a loss. But the yell of all the yells, The yell that wins the day, Is the “HOYA, HOYA SAXA!” For the dear old Blue and Gray.
