UConn Hoops Back to the Big East?

According to multiple reports, the Big East is open to considering accepting UConn as a basketball-only member. From ESPN's Andy Katz: If UConn found a home for football, the Big East would seriously consider the Huskies for all other sports, according to a source with knowledge. The Big East would be a natural fit. So far the 10-team Big East only has all sports members, but doesn't offer Division I (FBS) football. UConn is in all sports in the AAC. If given the choice, the Huskies would want to be in the Big 12 in all sports. But the chances that offer ever comes is still too hard to...

Kenner League Recap: Tombs vs Clydes Player Analysis

Kenner League -€” June 16, 2016 Jonathan Mulmore: Did not play today, most likely a result from a hard fall he took last weekend. This guy is going to be special though, an aggressive point guard who is a natural passer with the speed to beat his man to the hole on the drive. Get excited. LJ Peak: Another solid performance for Peak as he scored in a variety of ways and was active on both ends of the floor. Fouling is still a problem, I love his energy and movement on defense, but he still makes bad fouls trying to make a play on defense. That being said he had a nice strip on Rodney...

Tyler Foster Decommits from Georgetown, World Reacts

A bit of interesting recruiting news this morning as Class of 2017 SG Tyler Foster has decommitted from Georgetown. Foster, a Maryland product who committed to the Hoyas over a year ago, had been recruited by VCU and is likely to garner interest among the usual smattering of DMV programs. Though anytime a recruit decommits might raise some eyebrows among the Hoya faithful, there are likely two reasons for his decision: 1) Foster may have been recruited by one of the recently departed assistant coaches and wanted to reopen his recruitment after the staff shakeup, or 2) Georgetown's court...

Kenner Is Coming: 2016 Kenner League Preview

Cheap snack and free basketball enthusiasts of the greater Washington, D.C. area, rejoice, for it is truly the most wonderful time of the offseason! The Nike Pro City/Jabbo Kenner League kicks off this weekend, and not a minute too late, as some among us were resigned to utter despair at the prospect of a weekend without the NBA Playoffs or Game of Thrones. We can't find rosters yet, nor a schedule for anything past the first two days — and for those of you new to Kenner League, this is typical of the overall operation. It's entirely possible that some of these players won't appear, due...

Class of '17 SF Antwan Walker Visits Georgetown

Class of 2017 small forward Antwan Walker visited Georgetown yesterday.  Walker, who plays for DC's HD Woodson High School and Team Loaded on the AAU Circuit, has been on Georgetown's radar for quite some time.  Currently rated a 2-star prospect by Verbal Commits, Walker's stock has risen in recent months and he seems to be the type of under the radar kid that JT3 and the staff loves to bring to the Hilltop and develop. Highlights below: Here is an exclusive sideways pic of Walker talking to Hall of Fame coach John Thompson during his visit yesterday.  The bathroom is apparently to...

Hoyas Invade NBA Summer League

Like Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons descending upon Westeros, a few of your Fighting Hoyas of Georgetown will be heading to Las Vegas for the 2016 NBA Summer League. Per @AlexKennedyNBA, Henry Sims will play summer league with the Nets, DaJuan Summers with the Knicks and Aaron Bowen with the Magic. #Hoyas — Hoyas247 (@Hoyas247) June 26, 2016 Of the above, Henry Sims is probably a safe bet to make the Nets after an impressive showing towards the end of last season.  Summers has played in the Summer League for the last few seasons but hasn't played in the NBA since 2013 with the...
