Small in stature but a big game player, 5-8 Don Weber was a mainstay for the Georgetown backcourts of the late 1960's and early 1970's.

Weber, a walk-on before arriving at Georgetown and earning a scholarship, was a part of two state championship teams at Don Bosco, playing alongside fellow Hoyas Charlie Adrion and Jim Higgins. The smallest player on the freshman team, Weber scored 20.3 points per game and his 32 against Maryland. Joining the varsity the following season, Weber was a fan favorite, scoring a season high 22 against William & Mary and posting four double figure games to go along with his fast break style up the court.

By 1970, Weber had won the starting role at guard and proceeded to lead the Hoyas en route to the NIT. Described as a "ball handling whiz" in the campus press, Weber stepped up the scoring as well, scoring in double figures 15 times, averaging 11.2 points and 3.3 assists per game. His 25 points against George Washington was a career high.

Weber's scoring continued to excel in 1971, with 13 double figure games and a 44% shooting average despite being the third or fourth scoring option. His 100 assists led the club for a second straight year.

Following graduation in 1971, Weber spent a season as coach of the freshman team at Georgetown before beginning a business career.
