The Hoyas missed the NCAA tournament for the first time in five years last season. Georgetown finished the 2013-2014 season with a record of 18-15 which was good enough for the NIT tournament. Last season’s Hoyas were led by Markel Starks and D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera. Starks has graduated but Smith Rivera will be back in D.C. for his third season. Georgetown enters the 2014-2015 season with an extremely quality recruiting class. The three top 100 recruits (Isaac Copeland, L.J. Peak, and Paul White) should help the Hoyas reach the familiar territory that is the NCAA tournament.
The Hoyas are coached by John Thompson III who runs the Princeton offense. The Princeton offense is a very patient offense with a lot of cutting a slashing, but Thompson III has mastered it and tweaked it to fit the athletic ability of his Hoyas. The Hoyas have had many great players come through their program and went on to have great NBA careers. Some of these players include: Patrick Ewing, Dikembe Mutombo, Allen Iverson, Greg Monroe, Jeff Green, and Roy Hibbert.
