Recruiting Update: Meet Kobie Eubanks

RECRUITING TARGET: KOBIE EUBANKS Well, this is certainly interesting. A month into the academic year and less than three weeks removed from the season's first practice, Scout's Evan Daniels has reported that Georgetown is visiting Kobie Eubanks, a four-star wing who has recently reopened his recruitment and would be eligible to play in December. Eubanks originally committed to Baylor's 2014 recruiting class before losing his scholarship due to grade manipulation on his transcript from Florida's Plantation American Heritage School. After transferring to Our Savior New American School (Long...

Film Room: Isaac Copeland

@NationWideNolan on everything you need to know about Georgetown's rising sophomore. This is the guy. If Georgetown is to climb from the solid Top 25 caliber group of 2014-2015 and into a threat nationally that hovers around Top 10 territory and into 2-3 seed territory for March - it's with a major, yet reasonable jump from Isaac Copeland. Hailed as the jewel of a strong 2014 recruiting class, Copeland struggled out of the gate in three home openers against bottom-tier competition resulting in seeing him on the floor for a combined 7 minutes in the Bahamas vs Florida and Wisconsin....

Josh Smith Looking Svelte at Houston Rockets Media Day

Qasual Questions: Throwdown Thursday

It's been so long since last we met some QQs, so let's get to it! What did you have for dinner last night? Is the Pope's visit to the United States something you are following closely? If you could go on a date with one celebrity and actually had a chance to score with him or her, who would it be and why? Best Tom Cruise film? What should be the 'We Are Georgetown' t-shirt slogan for the upcoming season? (Note that if your offering is chosen you are going to win a Casual Prize)

Epic Documentation of Hoyas in Italy

Friend of the blog and noted Rich videographer, Evan Chvotkin was with the Hoyas in Italy and has all the documentation you could ever want. Real time documentation of the Hoyas in Italy was hard to come by (and almost set in motion a complete meltdown on The Global Phenomenon), but as we get closer to Midnight Madness (where I'm sure the documentation won't cause any issues here), Evan Chvotkin passed along a truly epic collection of photos from the Hoyas' trip to Italy. I've embedded a bunch below, but check out Evan's full collection on Flickr for enough documentation to last you until...

Film Room: Paul White

@NationWideNolan brings the noise on Georgetown's sophomore forward. Can he play in the back court? Should Marcus Derrickson start over him? Is he the jack of all trades 6th man? What is known about Paul White is that he offers a skilled game in a 6'8 frame. Known as a cerebral play-making forward, White also displayed better outside shooting touch than advertised coming out of high school playing for Whitney Young HS and the Chicago bred AAU Meanstreets program. The knocks on White's game - lack of physicality and assertiveness also showed as the season entered the doldrums of January and...

Recruiting Update: Meet Zach Norvell

The 4-Star recruit is visiting Georgetown this weekend. Potential Hoya: Zach Norvell After two consecutive years of bringing in premium frontcourt talent, John Thompson III and his staff are focusing on bringing in some high-quality guards in the Class of 2016. Georgetown already has one commitment from 6-foot-3 guard Jagan Mosely, but the team is not satisfied with just one guard in the class. In addition to Seventh Woods, Curtis Jones, and Bruce Brown, the team has been recruiting rising senior guard Zach Norvell of Simeon Career Academy in Chicago. Basic information: Height:...

Georgetown - Syracuse: The T-Shirt

OK, so as we all know the Hoyas are battling Syracuse again this season, and our guy Chris Grosse over at Georgetown is looking for ideas and concepts for a t-shirt that won't suck that can be given out at the game. Any ideas for a t-shirt design for the Cuse game? Has to be semi-appropriate ;) — Chris Grosse (@Chris_Grosse) September 14, 2015 Awesome artwork from @JimmyDonofrio! Going to be using this logo Cuse week for sure! #Hoyas pic.twitter.com/DEqy0CUy5O — Chris Grosse (@Chris_Grosse) September 16, 2015 Given how great we did in coming up with Georgetown's new...

Tuesday Morning (Links) Dump

Here is your Tuesday Morning (Links) Dump: Top 10: Teams outside of our No-Longer-Way-Too-Early Top 25 - Men's College Basketball Blog - ESPN2. Georgetown Hoyas: Losing Joshua Smith, Mikael Hopkins and Jabril Trawick this spring cost Georgetown its best post scorer, its best rebounder and back-line defender, and its undisputed senior leader, all at once. That's a lot to overcome. The Hoyas' prospects for doing so improved dramatically when D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera came back to school. Smith-Rivera's holdover gave John Thompson III at least some ballhandling continuity through which that...
