The Georgetown Hoyas are set to tip off their 2012-2013 college basketball season. 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. Last season the Hoyas went a respectable 24-9, placed 4th in the Big East, and received a 3 seed in the tourney due to their great non-conference play and big wins over big opponents. The Hoyas looked promising, but had an early exit in the Round of 32 to an up and coming N.C. State team. This year, N.C. State looks to be one of the best in the country. This season Thompson III too believes that his team can be one of the best in the nation. They bring in a great recruit in G D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera from the prestigious Oak Hill Academy. Smith-Rivera already knows what its like to play on the big state, a quality a lot of guys do not have coming into college basketball. However, he will need to pick it up because the Hoyas lose leading scorer Jason Clark to graduation. Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action as the Hoyas look to top the Big East this season.
