The Georgetown University Men's Basketball team (which, like all sports teams at Georgetown University, is named the Georgetown Hoyas) is a well-known basketball program in the NCAA Big East. Georgetown's first intercollegiate men's basketball team was formed in 1907. John Thompson III, son of the accomplished Hoyas coach John Thompson, is the current head coach. The Hoyas historically have been well regarded not only for their team success, but also for their ability to generate players that after graduation succeed both on the court (such as Patrick Ewing) and off (such as Henry Hyde).

The team has reached the NCAA Tournament Final Four 5 times, winning the National Championship in 1984. It has also won the Big East Men's Basketball Tournament 7 times, and has won the Big East regular season title 4 times. Its most recent trip to the Final Four was in 2007, where they lost to the Ohio State Buckeyes in the semi-final round.

The Hoyas currently employ their own variant of the Princeton offense, a slow, cerebral style of play that is very rare in the modern college game. The hallmark of the offense is the "backdoor" pass, where a player on the wing suddenly moves in towards the basket, receives a bounce pass from a guard on the perimeter, and (if done correctly) finds himself with no defenders between him and a layup. Coach Thompson learned the style while serving under then-Coach Pete Carril of the Princeton University Tigers. Georgetown has been lauded in the sports media for destroying the "warped stereotype" that "African American kids don't want discipline" as well as for proving that the typically brawny Georgetown team can excel by emphasizing offensive efficiency rather than defense (not that the defense is any less efficient).

History

The early years

The Georgetown men's basketball team played its first game February 9, 1907, defeating the University of Virginia by a score of 22–11. In its first 60-some years, the program displayed only sporadic success.[2] Until McDonough Gymnasium opened on campus for the 1950-51 season, the team moved its home court frequently, playing in McKinley Tech High School, Ryan Gymnasium, Uline Arena, and the National Guard Armory.[2] The team recruited its first All-American, Ed Hargaden, in 1931-32.[2] In 1942, a Hoya went pro for the first time, when three seniors, Buddy O'Grady, Al Lujack, and Don Martin played professionally upon graduation.[2] The next year the team, led by future congressman Henry Hyde, reached new heights by going all the way to the NCAA championship game. The team's coach, Elmer Ripley, would be inducted into the basketball hall of fame 30 years later.[2]

World War II suspended the program, however, and it was rarely successful over the next three decades, with only two postseason appearances (1952-53 and 1969-70).[2] Top players from that period include Tom O'Keefe, the first Hoya to reach 1,000 career points in 1949-50, and future NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue who would graduate #2 in Hoya career rebounds in 1962.[2]

The first Thompson era

The Esherick years

Craig Esherick coached the Georgetown Hoyas basketball squad from 1999 to 2004. Esherick was a four year player for the men's basketball team from 1974–78 and then the lead assistant coach under John Thompson Jr. from 1981–99. He was named head coach after Thompson abruptly resigned in 1999.

In Esherick's first season the team finished with a 15–15 record before losing to Princeton in the first round of the NIT tournament. They improved in 2000 going 19–15 and advanced to the second round of the NIT tournament. After winning the first round game in quadruple overtime over the University of Virginia, the Hoyas lost in the second round game to the University of California.

In 2001, led by a future top 10 NBA Draft pick in Michael Sweetney, they made the NCAA tournament after finishing 23–7 in the regular season. In the opening round of the NCAA tournament the 7th seeded Hoyas advanced past the 10 seed Arkansas on a game winning shot at the buzzer by Nat Burton. The Hoyas then beat Hampton University in the second round to set up a sweet sixteen match with local rival Maryland. They lost to the third seeded Terrapins 76–66 to end their season. The Hoyas were ranked 23rd in the final AP poll.[1]

In 2002, the Hoyas went 19–11, barely missing a NCAA tournament bid and then rejecting a NIT bid. In response to the controversy about that decision, both Esherick and NIT organizers claimed that Georgetown declined the bid because of travel issues associated with the players' ability to attend classes.[2][3]

In 2003, the Hoyas finished the regular season with a 19–15 record. They accepted a bid to the NIT and made it to the finals where they then lost to Big East rival St. John's. Sweetney was named a second team All American and was drafted with the number 9 pick in the NBA Draft by the New York Knicks.

In Esherick's final season, the 2003-04 season, the Hoyas struggled to a 13–15 overall record and a dismal 4–12 Big East record. The 13 wins was the team's fewest since the 1973-74 season and Esherick was fired 5 days after an opening round Big East Tournament loss to Boston College. One of the few positive notes Esherick left on was off the court, where his Hoyas' team had the highest graduation rate amongst Big East teams.[4]

Georgetown began a national search [3] for a new coach after Esherick's firing that resulted in the hiring of John Thompson III.

Another Thompson takes the helm

John Thompson III took over coaching duties in April 2004.

On April 21, 2004, John Thompson III was selected as the head coach of the Hoyas. The son of the legendary Hoyas coach, JT3 as he became known to many fans, took over the position after over a decade at Princeton University. Thompson III was a player for the Tigers from 1984-88, was an assistant coach at Princeton from 1995-2004 and took over as head coach until his move to the Hoyas. JT3's head coaching stint at Princeton was marked with success as he led the Tigers to 3 Ivy League Titles, 2 NCAA tournament appearances and one NIT appearance.[4]

Thompson III brought with him an adaptation of the Princeton offense as an offensive philosophy to Georgetown. He had learned it under the tutelage of legendary coach Pete Carril at Princeton and began to adjust the strategy to the more athletic players he would be coaching at Georgetown. Thompson III also immediately brought two new assistant coaches to Georgetown in Robert Burke and Kevin Broadus

Recent seasons

2004-05 season

The opening season for the Hoyas with JT3 at the helm was characterized by low expectations. The Hoyas had been picked to finish 11th in the Big East at Big East Media Day and the stability of the program had been hurt by the coaching and player turnover of the previous year. JT3 did inherit three players that Esherick had recruited in Jeff Green, Roy Hibbert, and Tyler Crawford. He also brought with him a former Princeton recruit, Jonathan Wallace and saw the return of two major contributors from the previous Georgetown team in Brandon Bowman and Ashanti Cook.

Behind the play of returnees like Bowman, Cook and Darrel Owens and contributions from Green, Wallace and Hibbert the Hoyas jumped out to a surprising 16-6 start in the regular season. However, after a 1-6 finish down the stretch the Hoyas ended the regular season with a 17-12 record. Still, the Hoyas had exceeded expectations with their 8th place Big East finish and accepted an invitation to the NIT. In the NIT, the Hoyas blew out their first two opponents, Boston University and Cal State Fullerton, but eventually went down in the Quarterfinals to the eventual NIT Champion South Carolina Gamecocks.

The Hoyas ended the season with a 19-13 record and with high expectations for the next year. The optimism was a mainly because Bowman and Owens were to remain at Georgetown for the following year along with return of the teams' now rising sophomores, led by Big East co-Rookie of the Year, Jeff Green. The teams' improvement also translated to their recruiting as the Hoyas secured the commitment of two highly touted players in Dajuan Summers and McDonald's All American Vernon Macklin.

2005-06 season

The 2005-06 Hoyas were picked to finish 6th in the Big East at the conference media day. The team raced out to an 11-4 record including an 8-2 mark in out of conference play. John Thompson III's first notable win with the team took place on January 21, 2006 in the 16th game of the season when unranked Georgetown upset No. 1 Duke University. This was Georgetown's first win over a No. 1 ranked team in 21 years. An interesting item of trivia is that the last time the Hoyas beat a number one ranked team, John Thompson Jr. was coaching and Patrick Ewing was playing. In their win against Duke, John Thompson III was coaching and Patrick Ewing, Jr. was sitting on the bench (as a redshirt transfer sophomore).[5]

2006-07 season

The 2006-07 Hoyas were led by juniors, forward Jeff Green, center Roy Hibbert, and point guard Jonathan Wallace. The team's freshmen were DaJuan Summers (Owings Mills, Md./McDonogh), Vernon Macklin (Hargrave Military Academy), and Jeremiah Rivers (Winter Park, Fla.). Other regular players are Tyler Crawford, Jessie Sapp, and Patrick Ewing, Jr.

The 2006-07 season marked the centennial of Hoya hoops, which was celebrated by honoring some of the team's most famous alumni at the Georgetown-Marquette game on February 10 (Georgetown won, 76-58).

On March 3, 2007, the Hoyas completed their first regular-season Big East Championship since 1989. On March 10, 2007, the Hoyas defeated the Pittsburgh Panthers (65-42) to win the 2007 Big East Tournament Championship for the first time since 1989. Jeff Green was named the Big East Player of the year and the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

The Hoyas advanced to the 2007 Final Four before losing to an Ohio State team led by Greg Oden. In the NCAA tournament's first weekend, the Hoyas defeated Belmont (1st rd) and Boston College (2nd rd). The Hoyas' games in the second weekend were some of the closest and most-watched contests of the tournament -- the Hoyas defeated Vanderbilt on a last-second bank shot by Jeff Green, then beat North Carolina in the Regional Final when their defense caused North Carolina to suffer an improbable collapse in which UNC missed 22 of their final 23 field goal attempts.[5]

After the season, Assistant Coach Sydney Johnson left to become the head coach at Princeton University and Assistant Coach Kevin Broadus left to become the head coach at SUNY-Binghamton.[6] Jeff Green also left the team, entering the NBA draft. Green was drafted fifth by the Boston Celtics but was ultimately traded to the Seattle SuperSonics. [7]

2007-08 season

The 2007-08 Hoyas finished with a regular season record of 27-5, winning the regular season title on March 8, 2008.[8] They lost to the University of Pittsburgh in the conference championship game. This placed them as a number two seed in the 2008 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, where they lost their second round game.

2008-09 season

After the 2007-8 season, Roy Hibbert, Jonathan Wallace, and Patrick Ewing, Jr. all graduated, while Vernon Macklin and Jeremiah Rivers both transferred from the school.[9] Nevertheless, the Hoyas began the year ranked #22 AP/#18 ESPN, based equally on the reputations of their two upperclassmen, DaJuan Summers and Jessie Sapp, and their recruiting class, led by Greg Monroe.[10] The Hoyas were highly successful in non-conference games (9-2) and saw their ranking rise as high as #9. However, college basketball's toughest strength of schedule eventually wore down a team that was also one of the youngest.[11] The Hoyas were 7-11 in Big East play for a 12th-place finish, followed by a first-round loss in the Big East tournament, the worst record in Thomson's five years at the helm.

Results

The men's basketball team is the most successful and well-known sports program at the university. They won the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship in 1984 (over the University of Houston) under coach John Thompson, Jr. The Hoyas also reached and lost the Championship game in 1943 (to Wyoming), 1982 (to North Carolina), and 1985 (to Big East rival Villanova). The Hoyas also recently made it to the Final Four in 2007.

The team has been very successful in the Big East: it won or tied for the regular-season titles in 1980, 1984, 1987, 1989, 1992, 2007, and 2008. The team was even more dominant in the Big East Men's Basketball Tournament: it won in 1980, 1982, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1989, and 2007.[12]

Alumni

In the NBA

The Hoyas have an excellent history of preparing players for the NBA. Two Hoyas were the NBA first overall draft picks: Patrick Ewing in 1985 and Allen Iverson in 1996. Other Hoyas to make the NBA include Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje, Sleepy Floyd, Jeff Green, Othella Harrington, Roy Hibbert, Jaren Jackson, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo, Don Reid, Charles Smith, Michael Sweetney, Jahidi White, Jerome Williams, Reggie Williams, and David Wingate.[14] Victor Page, who led the Big East in scoring during the 1996–97 season, played in the CBA and NBDL. Page was one of the greatest players in Sioux Falls Skyforce history.
