Many of you have probably never heard of a young man named Tyler Foster. He is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who plays for the Gilman School in Baltimore, and his favorite team is the Georgetown Hoyas. Foster loves them so much that he committed to the program yesterday, as was reported by Matt Bracken of the Baltimore Sun.
It should also be mentioned that Foster has yet to even begin...
The Georgetown Hoyas used social media to have fans enter a design contest that would determine the new look for the team’s basketball court during the upcoming season.

Georgetown announced the winning design on Tuesday afternoon.
Here is the winner of...
The Georgetown Hoyas athletics have announced the winning home-court design for the upcoming 2015-16 season from their fan contest. The winning submission was by Kevin Rieffel (C’06) from Philadelphia, Pa — a former member of Georgetown’s swimming and diving team.

The Georgetown Hoyas and Maryland Terrapins have not played in men’s basketball since 2008, when the two teams met in the Old Spice Classic in Orlando. There were talks of renewing the rivalry as recently as 2012, but as ESPN’s Andy Katz wrote then, things broke down when things became public.
Anderson’s original comment to The Washington Post was that “if we’re going...
St. John’s made the hire of alum Chris Mullin as head basketball coach official minutes ago. The former Red Storm and NBA star is taking over the reins for Steve Lavin and has already hired Iowa State assistant coach Matt Abdelmassih to be a part of his staff.
When Mullin suited up for St. John’s during the 1980s, the program’s top rivals were Syracuse and Georgetown. The three...
WASHINGTON -- Former Georgetown coach John Thompson Jr. had intestinal surgery less than two weeks ago, and the school says he is recovering "beautifully."
Georgetown said in a statement Sunday the 74-year-old Hall of Famer who led the Hoyas to the 1984 national title had corrective surgery for a benign twisted intestine.
The school adds that Thompson is "unfortunately unable to...

Tyler Adams had a lot of promise coming in to Georgetown, but four games in to his career with the Hoyas he had to stop playing. A heart condition put an early end to his time on the court. He remained on the team as a student-coach of sorts, but playing always had to be in the back of his mind. Saturday, after the team secured a waiver from the NCAA, he was able to do just that...

The official cheer and college yell of the Georgetown Hoyas at sporting events, with one group of fans starting the volley yelling "Hoya!" and another group returning a "Saxa!

Georgetown men’s basketball team could be set to face two local big-time programs in the 2015-16 season.
According to ESPN’s Andy Katz, Hoyas head coach John Thompson III discussed with him the possibility of the Hoyas playing Virginia in the 2015 BB&T Classic held annually at the Verizon Center in D.C. And Georgetown could renew its rivalry...
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.
''Right in the middle of the season, you almost have...

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.
