News, Graduations, and Birthdays

By Hoya Hoops
  • It’s only May, but we already have the first bit of news regarding the 2011-12 season. The Hoyas will be traveling to play Alabama on December 1st as a part of the Big East/SEC Challenge. The last time the two teams met was in 2007 when Georgetown won 70-60 in that year’s interconference challenge.
  • Recent transfer Vee Sanford has announced where he will be playing basketball next season, as he’s committed to the University of Dayton.

    We at Hoya Hoops wish Vee the best as a Flyer, but we are a little upset with his decision, as it messes up our limerick.

    There once was a Hoya Vee Sanford
    But after two seasons he transferred.
    Had a great hi-top fade,
    In games, seldom played.
    And next year, he’s playing at Stanford Dayton.

  • Tomorrow is Commencement Day for the class of 2011, so we wanted to congratulate seniors Austin Freeman, Chris Wright, Julian Vaughn, and Ryan Dougherty as well as managers C.J. Ciarrocchi and Ray Moss. Have fun at Senior Ball tonight guys!

    [Update: GUHoyas.com has just posted an article with quotes from the seniors – Six Members of Men’s Basketball Program to Earn Degrees on Saturday

  • And today is the birthday of two Hoyas who have gone on to have careers in the NBA – Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje and Patrick Ewing, Jr. While Pat’s Hornets have been knocked out of the NBA Playoffs, Ruben is in the semi-finals of the Basketball Bundesliga in Germany, and his Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck trail the series 0-1 to Brose Baskets Bamberg.

Patrick Ewing Jr. Plays in the NBA

By Johnny

It’s been three years in the making, but Patrick Ewing Jr. finally made his first appearance in a regular season NBA game yesterday.

Pat in the NBA
After being called up from the D-League Saturday on a 10-day contract, Pat got to see his first minutes as a New Orleans Hornet last night in the 95-91 victory over the Trailblazers.

He only played 1 minute and 37 seconds near the end of the first half, and had 0 stats other than minutes, but he has now officially joined the ranks of his father, three of his Georgetown teammates, and 37 other Hoyas as an NBA player.


Patrick Ewing Jr. Signed by Hornets

By Johnny

Patrick Ewing Jr. has been signed to a 10-day contract by the New Orleans Hornets to fill the gap left by injured David West.

Who knows how much playing time Pat will see in the next ten days, but hopefully his performance with the Hornets in the upcoming weeks will earn him the shot he deserves.
