Welcome to an attempt to chronicle the rich and varied history of Georgetown University basketball and place it online.
The site was begun in 2003 as a means of compiling an accurate historical and statistical record of the men's basketball program in advance of the 100th anniversary of the program during the 2006-07 season. It continues as an online archive of these statistics with additional feature content meant to further illustrate the history it has built over the years.
This iteration of the Basketball History Project contains a variety of facts, details, and trivia of interest to any Georgetown fan. Within these pages, you will find:
-- Dates and locations for as many as 2,500 games played by the school since it began the sport;
-- A complete list of all alumni who have played on the varsity, with position, jersey number, hometown, and high school information where available;
-- A series of feature articles on the program, from jersey styles and game programs to key figures and moments in its development;
-- Photos and bios of all former head coaches;
-- Details on former Georgetown players that played in the National Basketball Association; and
-- A series of game, season, and career records currently in force.
(Not all data has been secured, however. The site is in need of team photos and other memorabilia. If you have an old program that you can photocopy and scan, e-mail, or send to us, contact us at the address below.)
Source material comes from a variety of media guides and game programs, numerous Google image searches, and cross-references with contemporary news accounts Changes can and will be made when identified, so if you see additions or corrections, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'm also hoping to make more additions in the years to come, such as adding team photos, but this involves permissions and locating teams to which a photo was not otherwise published.
Thanks for following the Hoyas, and of this site.
History never really says goodbye. History says, "See you later."
