BB&T Doubleheader

6/21/16

From CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein, news about a doubleheader at the Dec. 4 BB&T Classic:

Georgetown has participated in the previous two years after a much-publicized absence from the tournament, founded in 1995. GW missed the event in 2015 for the first time since its founding, citing a scheduling conflict.

Two Weeks To The Kenner League

Updated 6/22/16

The names may change, but one of the verities of summer basketball is the lack of any pre-promotion for the Kenner League, leading to the inevitable question: When is the season going to start?

The NCAA has cleared the 36th annual tournament to run from July 2 through August 2 at McDonough Gymnasium.

The first weekend's games, with rosters pending:

A brief history of the tournament can be found at the Georgetown Basketball History Project.

Power of Many

6/21/16

Today marks ten days remaining for the Georgetown fiscal year, but also for a momentous campaign that has reached out to all segments of the University for annual and philanthropic support.

Over the last few days, the University is reaching out to all its supporters to make a gift to drive participation. If you have made a gift this year, thank you. If you have not, please visit the Power of Many website and strongly consider a gift of any amount to support scholarship, to support Athletics, or any number of initiatives as you see fit. Now is the time--the campaign ends June 30.

Campus Plan Discussed

6/8/16

Georgetown officials began the public phase of community comments on its next campus plan, according to the Georgetown Current.

The major athletics-related issue is the deteriorating Yates Field House, which the plan discusses as follows: "The Campus Plan supports the option of demolishing the existing structure, allowing for broader thinking about the facility's future function. A replacement Yates facility would provide the opportunity to explore the highest and best use for the site and include a variety of programs synergistic to its primary recreational and athletic function, including a potential hotel/conference center in support of University and Hospital operations, and also allow the option of linking the facility to the nearby Leavey Center. Additional outdoor athletic space could potentially be accommodated adjacent to and on the rooftop of a replacement Yates facility."

Not cited: future renovations to McDonough Gymnasium (which will be 85 years old at the conclusion of the plan), when Cooper Field will be green lighted, and the third rail of Georgetown politics, the boathouse.

The plan is available in greater detail at this link.
