Georgetown Hoyas Player Profiles: Tre Campbell

How much impact will the only true point guard on the roster have in his freshman season? Next up in our series of player profiles is freshman point guard Tre Campbell. A local product, Campbell attended nearby St. John's College High School, where he led his team to a highly successful season as a senior.  He arrives on the hilltop as a three-star recruit, and should have an opportunity to make an immediate impact as a new member of the Hoyas. High School Senior-year statistics: 12.6 PPG, 56 3-pointers made Recruiting Profile: three-star, #126 Rivals, #182 247Sports, #90 Scout Campbell...

Georgetown Hoyas Player Profiles: Trey Mourning

What will the son of Zo give us in year one? After a quick look at the walk-ons, our player profiles series turns to the scholarship Hoyas.  First up is freshman who is no stranger to the Hilltop.  Like his coach, Trey Mourning arrives at Georgetown bearing one of the most famous names in Hoya hoops history. But with plenty of front-court competition, the younger Mourning may be a year or more away from forging his own legacy on the court. High school Senior-year statistics: 29 ppg, 10 rpg Recruiting profile: three-star Mourning dominated relatively meek competition at Ransom Everglades...

Hoya Madness: The Student Perspective

The much-anticipated 2014-15 edition of the Georgetown Hoyas was finally unveiled Friday night in McDonough Gymnasium, along with a flood of optimism and hope for a rebound season from last year's disappointing campaign.  An excellent play-by-play recap of last night's festivities with pictures and video clips can be found here, but I thought I would offer my more informal observations from a student perspective. Isaac Copeland and L.J. Peak can fly.  Not only can they jump high, but they also get off the ground quickly and effortlessly.  These two are going to provide a lot of...

Otto Porter gets paid and then has a huge game

The Wizards exercised their third-year option on Otto Porter and then he went out and had a great preseason game against Maccabi Haifa. On Tuesday, the Washington Wizards exercised their third-year contract option on Otto Porter. The option will pay Porter $4.6 million next season. On Wednesday, the Wizards played Maccabi Haifa at Verizon Center and Porter had one of his best games in a Wizards uniform (albeit in a preseason game against a non-NBA opponent). The Wizards beat Maccabi Haifa 101-95 and Otto racked up 19 points, 8 rebounds, 4 steals, 4 assists and 1 very loud...

Georgetown Hoyas Season Preview: The Roster

Georgetown Hoyas Season Preview: The Roster

With three departed seniors and five new pieces, how do these Hoyas compare to last year? The weather's getting chilly, the sun is lower in the sky, and midnight madness is just around the corner. We're just five weeks and ticking until Georgetown plays a real, live basketball game.  And yet we don't know much about this year's team. Three seniors are gone, including last season's offensive focal point and a four-year starter. The arrival of five freshmen and reintroduction of one massive piece means that even the returning Hoyas may find themselves in different roles. So what do we...
