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...

Make Georgetown Kente Again: The Saga of Georgetown's Failed New Court Design Contest

One year ago, Georgetown asked for and received input from the fans for a new court design for the Hoyas court at the Verizon Center. But what happened to it?
