Rodney Pryor: The transfer’s long road to leadership ends on the Hilltop

Rodney Pryor: The transfer’s long road to leadership ends on the Hilltop

After posting a dismal 15-18 record in its 2015-16 campaign, the once-great Georgetown men’s basketball team entered its long offseason searching for answers. Who would the team turn to in a time of increased scrutiny and microscopic criticism? How would the Hoyas replace the production of their fourth all-time leading scorer, D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera, who graduated…

Women’s basketball season preview

No one involved with the Georgetown women’s basketball team wants to talk about last year. It’s hard to blame them. The Hoyas’ 2013-2014 season was marred by inconsistency. After an initial rocky start, the Blue and Gray worked their way to a 6-3 record, picking up key wins against Yale, George Washington, and Princeton. But…

Men’s starting five lineups

With the Hoyas’ opening contest against St. Francis right around the corner, Head Coach John Thompson III has some difficult roster decisions to make. With five freshmen hungry to compete for playing time this season, choosing his starting rotation will be no easy task. Will the experienced upperclassmen be given the chance to bring the…

Meet the freshmen

Isaac Copeland: Forward, 6-9, 220 lbs, Raleigh, NC The most highly-touted of the incoming freshmen is Copeland. It is hard not to envision him as the next in a line of lanky bigs to find success for Georgetown.  At 6-foot-9, 220 pounds, no one is calling him Jeff Green or Otto Porter just yet, those proclamations can…

The Big East Team-By-Team Breakdown

The last few years have seen a dramatic change in the outlook for the Big East. Long the undisputed powerhouse of NCAA basketball, the famous conference had been the spiritual home of many of college basketball’s best rivalries. Nowadays, with the breakup of the old Big East, the days of yore have passed. Villanova and…

Player Profile: Jabril Trawick

Georgetown senior guard Jabril Trawick is no stranger to adversity. From the Hoyas’ recent postseason disappointments, to the reformation of the Big East, the departures of Otto Porter Jr. and Greg Whittington, and his own jaw injury last season, the Philadelphia native has seen his fair share of struggles. But despite all these past difficulties,…

Player Profile: Mikael Hopkins

Senior Forward Mikael Hopkins is a simple man. He doesn’t feel the need to enter Midnight Madness wearing a cape, rapping his own song lyrics like fellow senior Jabril Trawick. Nor does he maintain a major Twitter presence like teammates junior D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera or freshman L.J. Peak. During the madness of basketball media day, Hopkins…

Player Profile: Joshua Smith

Senior center Joshua Smith returns this year after a summer at home, looking leaner, meaner, and ready to go. After sitting out his junior spring due to academic issues, Smith appears to have turned over a new leaf both on and off the court. The 6-10, 350 pound behemoth feels he is much more mature….

Player Profile: D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera

Last year, the Hoyas needed then-sophomore shooting guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera to keep them from hitting the bottom of the Georgetown basketballing barrel. In 2014-2015, the team is looking to the 6-foot-3 junior to lead a redemption the likes of which hasn’t been seen since Head Coach John Thompson III took control of the team. Expectations…
