George Carney saw a longer career than anyone to wear the basketball uniform at Georgetown, but his career off the court was far more memorable than his time on it.

Because of law school and a special eligibility exemption for varsity players that entered during World War I, Carney's five varsity seasons in six years is the most of any Georgetown letterman in this sport. Carney played in 62 games over five years, serving as team captain in 1924, his final season. "Captain George Carney finished his basketball season at Georgetown with a wealth of praise to his credit," wrote The HOYA. "He has been guard on the Varsity for the past four [sic] years and always has been a mainstay of the team. An accurate shot and an excellent guard, he shone brilliantly as a floor man and in leading his team to victory."

Following law school, Carney became a prosecutor in the New York district attorney's office. He served two distinct terms as a associate justice of the New York State Supreme Court over a 35 year span. In the interim between the posts, he served as Judge of the the Court of General Sessions of New York. Justice Carney retired in 1976 and died in 1984.
