GEORGETOWN RUMORS & GOSSIP
George Washington got snubbed when it comes to this official NCAA Tournament shirt.As of Monday afternoon, this shirt was available for sale on the NCAA's official website, but it fails to include George Washington, the No. 9 seed in the East Region.You'll notice that the Georgetown Hoyas mistakenly had their logo placed on the back of the shirt, instead. The main problem...
Since the beginning of last month, when the Georgetown men’s basketball team began to dig itself out of a five-game losing streak, Hoyas Coach John Thompson III has spoken repeatedly about his team’s scant margin for error in order to secure an NCAA tournament berth. Winning, he said, was the only guarantee of removing all doubt whether Georgetown belongs in the field of 68....
It seemed appropriate that John Thompson III was fiddling with a stopwatch as he stood in the lobby of Georgetown's on-campus gym, speaking about a Hoyas team that has ventured far off-script. Time is running out in a season in which ''start,'' ''stop'' and ''reset'' became more than just buttons to press during a practice drill...

The four players committed early to Georgetown, so there was no drama on signing day – just a tremendous top-10 caliber class. Face up […]
Georgetown senior center Moses Ayegba will miss the Hoyas' game against Villanova, the result of a one-game suspension handed down by the NCAA just hours before Monday evening's tip-off.
The suspension "stems from his pre-enrollment reconciliation," Georgetown athletic director Lee Reed said in a statement. In 2010, the NCAA suspended Ayegba nine games for accepting...
Jabril Trawick is back for Georgetown after missing five games with a broken jaw.
The Hoyas said the junior guard was cleared to play Monday and would suit up for that night's game against No. 9 Villanova.
However, the Hoyas had to face the Wildcats without senior center Moses Ayegba, who was serving a one-game NCAA suspension.
Trawick had started all 14 games and was averaging...

Georgetown starting center Joshua Smith is academically ineligible and will miss the remainder of the season.
Coach John Thompson III made the announcement on Friday. Smith was third in scoring at 11.5 points for the Hoyas (11-7, 3-3 Big East), despite missing five games because of grades. He shot 65 percent from the field in his first season after transferring from UCLA.

Georgetown has gotten pretty creative with its basketball giveaway. The Hoyas will be handing out fake tattoo sleeves before tonight's game.
Tomorrow night at the Verizon Center, the Georgetown Hoyas will take on the St. John’s Red Storm for the 100th time in school history as they look to remain undefeated in Big East play. The matchup is also Georgetown’s ‘Men Against Breast Cancer’ game, so the team will be rocking special Jordan brand sneakers:
These are the special @Jumpman23 shoes we are wearing tomorrow...

Tweet The No. 15 seed Florida Golf Coast Eagles stunned the second-seeded Georgetown Hoyas 78-68 Friday to advance to the round of 32 in this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. The game will forever be remembered around the Fort Myers, FL campus and gave us yet another reason why March Madness is fantastic. Sherwood [...]
Otto Porter Jr. did not play a particularly great game on Thursday.
This is not at all to say that the Big East Player of the Year played poorly during top-seeded Georgetown's 62-43 smothering of Cincinnati in the Hoyas first Big East tournament game. Otto Porter does pretty much anything he's asked - run the fast break, play physical in the paint, harass the opponent with...
The story of last nights game was not the fact that Villanova upset the #5 Georgetown Hoyas. It was not the fact that Villanova shot 42 free throws compared to Georgetown’s 8. The best part of last nights game was the nerdy white boys going absolutely nuts at the end of the bench.
Look at these guys just yucking it up after a Nova three pointer. One guy seems to be using an invisible...
